This is a wonderful way to prepare smoky and spicy prawns with a sauce of butter, garlic, Worchestershire sauce, red wine and chipotle chillies. Serve over steamed rice.
Excellent both hot and cold. Quite similar to a cajun recipe but much lower in fat and easier to prepare. Excellent as a topper for a quick salad. I used a nonstick pan and a little cooking spray and was able to reduce the butter to 1 TB (just for flavor). 2 TB chipotle in adobo sauce (this is the correct spelling, not adobe!) gives a high mild/low medium heat level so increase/decrease the amount used to suit your taste. FYI - you will only use 2-3 chipotles in this recipe. Empty the can into a plastic container and store in your fridge. They keep for quite a long time. The adobo sauce adds a nice smoky and spicy flavor to recipes. - 03 Jun 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I have made this several times now and we thoroughly enjoyed it! I could only find whole chipotle peppers and found that if I take the seeds out before mincing, it's not quite as hot - which is how we like it. I too made it with chicken breast strips using non-stick spray for the chicken breasts and 1 Tbl. margerine for reduced fat. I sauted the chicken first and removed it to a warm platter. Then made the sauce, putting the chicken in the re-heat. When making the shrimp, I used pre-cooked, frozen thawed shrimp and put it in the sauce while it was simmering. Use the large, pre-cooked frozen shrimp (our store has been running 2 for 1 specials on bags of this). Delicious!! (also, I served the rice on the side) - 22 Oct 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Tossed this over pasta instead of rice. Added stir-fryed vegetables with it and doubled the sauce ingredients to cover the vegetables. - 17 Dec 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
