Chipotle Glazed Shrimp


  • 1/2head garlic (about 6 garlic cloves), peeled
  • 1small (7.5 ounce) can chipotles en adobo
  • 2tablespoons honey
  • 2tablespoons vegetable or olive oil
  • 1 to 1 3/4pounds medium-large shrimp (21 to 25 shrimp per pound), peeled and deveined, tail left on if you wish
  • About 1/4cup (loosely packed) roughly chopped cilantro, for garnish


Place the garlic in a small microwave-safe bowl, cover with water and microwave at 100% for 1 minute. Drain and scoop into a blender jar. Add the whole can of chipotle, honey, 1/3 cup water, 1 teaspoon salt and blend to a smooth puree.

In a wok or large (14-inch) skillet, heat the oil over medium-high and sear the shrimp for about 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Pour about 1/3 the chipotle sauce over the shrimp, toss to coat and season with salt.

Scoop into a large bowl and garnish with the cilantro.
