Grilled Chipotle Chili Lime Shrimp

INGREDIENTS

1 lb shrimp - peeled & cleaned

3 chipotle peppers in adobo - minced

1 TBS sambal oelek (or other chili paste)

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1 TBS brown sugar

1 large lime - juice & zest

1/4 cup cilantro - chopped

1 TBS olive oil

Blend all the non-seafood ingredients in a bowl & add the shrimp & coat them.  I then put this in a zip lock bag in the fridge for a few hours.  And shallow bowl serves this same purpose.

Cook your shrimp (on a grill or in an oiled pan) for 2-3 minutes each side.  Err on the side of a tad under-cooked because they will continue cooking once they are off the heat.

Tostadas

Simply pile your ingredients on top of a fried tostada shell in an sequence you prefer.  I loved my VERY spicy chipotle Mexican crema (1/2 cup crema blended with 3 chipotle peppers) but you can use sour cream.  Squeeze lots of fresh lime on your completed tostada.  And here are some topping ideas:

Spinach

Cabbage

Tomato

Avocado

Red onion

Cilantro

Scallions

Cotija cheese (or other grated cheese)

Lime

Chipotle Mexican Crema (1/2 cup crema - or sour cream - blended with 3 chipotle peppers)
