There are some flavors that are just meant to be together. Peanut butter and jelly…. Strawberries and cream…. Salt and pepper… And one of MY favorites…chipotle and lime. Yum!
The wonderfully smoky, sweet and slightly spicy chipotle mixes perfectly with the tangy, sweet lime to make a delicious seasoning perfect for just about any meat, fish, seafood, salad dressing, vegetables, sauce…you name it!
So to kick off grilling season this year, I decided to pull out a bag of shrimp and make these delicious chipotle lime shrimp skewers. Although unfortunately, it was pouring down rain the day I made these this week. So I ended up “grilling” them inside on my grill pan….but they were still delicious!
I ended up using my favorite chipotle powder (available in your spice stores, or here online) instead of the canned chipotles in adobo sauce. But either would work. I just highly recommend using fresh limes instead of the bottled juice — much more fresh and flavorful!
So heat up your grill, or grill pan, or even your skillet to give these a try! I think you’ll love them!
