Chipotle-Espresso Roasted Shrimp

Need a quick and easy meal or party appetizer? This Chipotle-Espresso Roasted Shrimp is the perfect blend of simple ingredients, easy prep and delicious results.

This Chipotle-Espresso Roasted Shrimp is one of my favorite recipes from Made With Coffee, my cookbook that’s available on Amazon & in our Etsy shop now!

I co-wrote Made With Coffee with my friend Jerry James Stone. Made With Coffee has 65+ recipes for incredible dishes like Remade with coffee cookbook with chipotle-espresso roasted shrimp recipeal Deal Red Chili and Cowboy Scones using coffee (or tea) plus a guide for making any coffee drink under the sun. Every recipe in the book is gluten-free or has a GF option, and there’s even a few recipes from my pals Alison of A Girl Defloured and Kyra from Kyra’s Bake Shop (yes, her Cupcake Wars-winning Coffee + Doughnuts Cupcake recipe is included!)

We couldn’t be more excited to share the book with you.

ovenroastedshrimprecipeNow, on to the roasted shrimp!

Perfect for a quick meal or an easy appetizer, these Chipotle-Espresso Roasted Shrimp are packed with flavor. The sweet notes from the brown sugar and the oranges are a fabulous counterpart for the earthy coffee and the chipotle powder’s heat.

I serve them over rice and veggies for a quick meal, and they are great on salads too. These shrimp are great served warm or room temperature, so I whip some up when we’re having friends over.

Give my Oven Roasted Shrimp with Lemon and garlic a try too – they are great over pasta and delicious when chilled.
