Honey Chipotle Shrimp

Shrimp has to be one of the easiest proteins to make. It’s ready in not a ton of time and it tastes so good paired with a bunch of different options! You can make it summer-y with fresh veggies or more winter-y with pasta. No matter what though- I’m down to eat this honey chipotle shrimp 😉

This honey chipotle shrimp is the perfect combo of sweet and spicy. The honey makes the spicy chipotle seasoning a little more mild but it still has a good kick to it. If you want a more mild shrimp recipe, check out my Honey Garlic Shrimp. Also if you want some other shrimp recipes to use up some leftovers, check out my Shrimp Loaded Sweet Potato and my Shrimp Stir Fry.

I just recently bought a jar of chipotle seasoning and I’ve been adding it to EVERYTHING. Seriously- where has this seasoning been all my life?! I’ve been adding it to popcorn, sweet potatoes, avocado, shrimp, rice, oh my gosh the list goes on haha. You can get it from a health food store, I couldn’t find it at Walmart! You can find it here on amazon also.

Be careful with the chipotle seasoning though… a little bit goes a longgg way haha. I learned this lesson after adding a tsp to a recipe that really only need about 1/4 of that.. So beware!

I let the shrimp marinate for about 15 minutes before cooking because it makes it way more flavorful. At minimum, let it marinade for at least 5 minutes so it can soak up some flavor!

I paired these shrimp with easy sauteed kale and sauteed zoodles- they only took about 5 minutes combined to make. These shrimp are so tasty- you don’t need fancy sides to make this dish stand out 😉

Hope you all enjoy and remember- be careful with the chipotle spice!
