  • 1 Lb. Shrimp raw, cleaned and deveined (16 Large Shrimps)

  • Salt and pepper to season
  • 2 Tablespoon of olive oil

  • In a bowl mix the shrimp with the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Let it rest for 15 minutes to marinate.
  • Combine roasted tomatoes, garlic, chipotle peppers and its adobo in a blender, process until smooth. Set aside.
  • Heat 1 Tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet, over medium-high heat. Add diced onion and the shrimp without the marinated juices. Slightly cook shrimp turning quickly to avoid overcooking. About 4 minutes. The shrimp will keep cooking later with the sauce. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  • Add the remaining 1 Tablespoon of olive oil to the skillet and turn heat to medium-high. Add the sauce and fry stirring constantly to prevent it to stick to the bottom. Simmer for about 10 minutes; if using the white wine add now and also add the thyme. Season with salt.
  • Add the shrimp and cook for 2 more minutes. Serve over white rice and sprinkle with cilantro if desired. Do not overcook the shrimp or it will taste like rubber. (Smile)


Some cooks add ¼ cup of white wine and let the sauce reduce a little bit longer.
