Chipotle Shrimp

I must confess I am on a Chipotle seasoning kick. It is smoky, spicy (without being too hot) and just plain delicious. Tonight we made shrimp with roasted garlic, lime, smoked paprika, sea salt and of course chipotle.

Ingredients
2 T olive oil
1/2 tsp ghee
1 lb shrimp (I used wild caught with the shell on, but you can use whatever you like)
2 heads of garlic
1/2 tsp sea salt,
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp chipotle powder
juice of 1 lime
2 T olive oil

Method
Heat the olive oil and ghee in a skillet on medium low. (I use stainless steel). Cut the end off of the garlic heads and place in pan with the oil and cover the pan. Let it cook until the garlic is soft and cooked through. This will take 10 min or so. If the pan gets too hot and starts to burn turn it down. While the garlic is cooking, toss the shrimp with all the other ingredients. Once the garlic is cooked through, add the shrimp. Cooking about 2-3 minutes and then flip over for another 2-3 minutes until shrimp are bright pink. Shrimp with the shell on will take a bit longer than shrimp that is peeled. So just keep an eye on it. Serve on tacos, alone, or with a side of whatever veggies you like. We had it tonight with whole steamed artichokes.
