Chipotle-Lime Shrimp

From The Whole Smiths Good Food Cookbook: These grilled shrimp kebabs just may be the best shrimp I’ve ever had. Truth. Serve them with some braised kale or grilled zucchini for a perfect meal, brushing any extra marinade over the veggies before braising or grilling. – Michelle

1⁄2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, plus extra for garnish
4 garlic cloves, minced
1⁄4 cup fresh lime juice (from about 3 limes)
1 tablespoon ground chipotle 1 teaspoon salt
1 pound large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
Grilled vegetable of your choice, for serving


IN a large zip-top plastic bag, combine the olive oil, cilantro, garlic, lime juice, chipotle, and salt, seal the bag, and toss to thoroughly combine. Add the shrimp, seal the bag, and toss to coat. Set aside to marinate at room temperature for 1 hour.

THREAD the marinated shrimp onto skewers, reserving the marinade. Grill for 3 minutes per side, brushing on the reserved marinade as they cook.
