Roasted Espresso Chipotle Shrimp

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

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

made with coffee cookbook with chipotle-espresso roasted shrimp recipe

I co-wrote Made With Coffee with my friend Jerry James Stone. Made With Coffee has 65+ recipes for incredible dishes like Real 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.


Now, on to the roasted shrimp!

Perfect for a quick meal or an easy appetizer, these Roasted Espresso Chipotle 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.
