Chipotle-Espresso Roasted Shrimp

Easy + Delicious Oven-Roasted Shrimp recipe from the Made With Coffee Cookbook

Chipotle-Espresso Roasted ShrimpThis 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 cookbookal 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 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.



2 lbs large (16-20 or 21-25 count) raw shrimp, peeled and deveined

2-3 tbsps extra virgin olive oil

2 tbsps brown sugar

1 tbsp finely ground coffee, dark roast

1 tsp chipotle powder

3 mandarin oranges, sliced

½ tsp kosher salt

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper



Preheat the oven to 400° F

In a large bowl, toss shrimp, brown sugar, coffee, chipotle powder and orange slices with 2 tablespoons of the oil and the salt & pepper. Add the rest of the oil if needed to coat the shrimp.

Arrange shrimp in single layer on a lightly greased rimmed sheet pan, ensuring orange slices are spread evenly throughout. Roast for 8 to 10 minutes, just until pink and firm and cooked through.

  1. What a great way to prepare fresh shrimp! I’ve never used coffee with fish and shellfish before. The next time I find some good shrimp, I’ll try this.
