Chipotle Lime Shrimp

Wow, is it already Thursday? My, this week has flown by. We are still having 80 degree weather here and although I am liking it, I am really anxious for fall. I have many many things lined up to bake that are fall-inspired and I can't wait to share them with you all. However, it is not quite fall and the recipe I have to share today is more summer-inspired.

We had a family barbecue the other day and kind of made this shrimp on the go. I didn't want to have to go out once to the grocery store and then again to pick up my husband from work and drive to my in-laws. So, I picked up the frozen shrimp and let them thaw on the way there, then threw them in the marinade once we got there. Everything was very easy and fast to throw together.

Almost anything on the grill is wonderful, in my opinion, and these shrimp were no exception. There's just a little heat with the chipotle and the cilantro and lime just make the flavor pop even more. Don't put your grills away quite yet, give these a try. You can eat them with a side of pasta salad or throw them in some soft tacos with some beans and corn and Spanish Rice. Your tummy will thank you!

Chipotle Lime Shrimp
1 chipotle chili in adobo; chopped
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. cumin
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 lime (juice and zest)
2 Tbsp. cilantro; chopped
1 pound shrimp; peeled and deveined

Mix the chipotle, olive oil, cumin, brown sugar, lime zest, lime juice and cilantro in a bowl and and let marinate for 20 minutes. Skewer the shrimp. Oil up the grill and grill the shrimp until cooked, about 2-3 minutes per side.
