Spicy Grilled Shrimp with Pineapple Salsa

recipe

These spicy chipotle shrimp are full of flavor and cool down nicely with a bite of fresh pineapple salsa. If you don’t have your own grill, these shrimp are super easy to make in a cast iron grill pan, too. 

Try this shrimp and pineapple salsa in tortillas or alongside rice for a complete meal!

  • Grill the Shrimp

    Preheat the grill to medium high heat, about 450 degrees. Cook shrimp on the preheated grill for about 3-5 minutes per side or until cooked through. Remove shrimp from the heat and set aside.
  • Make the Spicy Sauce

    In a large saucepan over medium heat, warm the remaining 1 tbsp avocado oil. Add the onion and saute until just translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the minced garlic and continue to saute for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the chipotles in adobo, tomato paste, cumin, paprika, and remaining salt and pepper.
  • Mix Shrimp with Sauce

    Stir until combined and let simmer for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the water, a spoonful at a time, until well combined. Turn off the heat and stir in the lime juice and cooked shrimp, coating the shrimp with the sauce.
