EASY Chipotle Spiced Shrimp
Health Highlights


341 gm Shrimp, raw (peeled and deveined - about 48 shrimp)
2 tbsp Tomato paste, canned
1 1/2 tsp Water
1/2 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp Garlic (minced)
1/2 tsp Chili powder (can use chipotle chili powder)
1/2 tsp Oregano, fresh (chopped)


Rinse shrimp in cold water. Pat dry with a paper towel and set aside on a plate.

To make the marinade:

Whisk together the tomato paste, water and oil in a small bowl. Add garlic, chili powder and oregano. Mix well.

Using a brush, spread the marinade (it will be thick) on both sides of the shrimp. Place in the refrigerator.

Prepare broiler. Lightly coat the broiler pan with cooking spray. (TIME SAVER: foil the pan for easy clean up). Position the cooking rack 4 to 6 inches from the heat.

Put the shrimp on skewers and place under broiler.

Turn the shrimp after 3 to 4 minutes.

The cooking time varies depending on the heat of the fire, so watch carefully.



Serving size depends on the amount of shrimp per skewer. 2 skewers with 6 shrimp each = 8 servings
