I did not cook dinner Tuesday, which meant it was a free-for-all night for the family. Everyone was free to make or reheat whatever they chose to eat. So, I had leftover beef stew and a hot dog for dinner (I know...a bit eclectic). You should be glad to know that I refrained from making a half peanut butter and fluff sandwich as well—that would just be completely wrong—or not?? 


One thing I did make for everyone that day was this dish. The shrimp had a slight kick from the chipotle chili pepper seasoning and paired well with the limy dipping sauce. I used 16/20 count shrimp and baked them for 6 minutes in the oven. You can pan-sear them if you wish, but baking takes the babysitting factor out of the equation. After all, this recipe is all about making it easy! 

Enjoy! I'll see you back here soon!




CHIPOTLE CHILI PEPPER SHRIMP WITH A LIMY DIPPING SAUCE



INGREDIENTS:

1 lb. 16/20 count shrimp, peeled (with tails on) and deveined
2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp. chipotle chili pepper seasoning
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper

For the dipping sauce:
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tsp. agave nectar
4 tsp. fresh lime juice
2 tsp. grated lime zest
1 pinch of salt



INSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Pat shrimp dry with paper towels. Place on a large baking sheet and rub with oil. Combine chipotle chili powder, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl. Season both sides of shrimp. Spread shrimp in a single layer on baking sheet. Bake in oven for about 6 minutes or until shrimp is pink and opaque throughout. 

While shrimp bakes, make the dipping sauce. Place mayonnaise, sour cream, agave, lime juice, lime zest, and salt in a bowl. Whisk until smooth and creamy. Serve with shrimp. Makes 4 servings.

    What gorgeous photos! Seriously, if I could eat these shrimps through the Internet, I would. I love well-prepared shrimps when they're soft and absorb all the flavors through and through. The dipping sauce looks like a wonderful burst of freshness too! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe -- absolutely delicious!!
