About Anchored Shrimp


This is some of the best wild caught shrimp I have ever had. As said before, Anchored Shrimp comes from the coast of Georgia and only harvests the wild fresh delicious shrimp. They are highly versatile whether you are making tacos or just grilling over some hot coals. For these though, I seasoned them in a spicy shrimp mix and topped with a cooling aioli to finish.


The Spicy Shrimp Seasoning


There are a ton of ways to season shrimp. Whether you want zesty, savory or spicy shrimp, you will end up with something delicious. These Spicy Shrimp with Pineapple Aioli from Anchored Shrimp were seasoned with a great blend of ancho chile powder, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, cinnamon, pepper, cayenne and salt.

The heat comes from the blending of ancho chile powder and cayenne. Some zesty tang comes from the cumin, onion and garlic powder to give a nice depth of flavor. Overall these are relatively mild in the spicy category, but these spicy shrimp will still give you a kick if you let your guard down.


Pineapple Aioli Time


So why top these Spicy Shrimp with an aioli? Well, the nice fruity citrus flavor from the pineapple combined with the creaminess of the mayonnaise will help to calm your taste buds after a big bite of spiciness.


The Pineapple Aioli is a great blend to place on just about anything needing to curb some heat. These Anchored Shrimp are delicious when topped with the aioli along with some sesame seeds and scallions!

    Hi Derek,

    I made this recipe tonight and it was a hit with the wife and I. The shrimp had a nice kick to them but didn’t overpower the blend of ingredients which were really tasty. The citrus of the pineapple aioli was a nice offset to the spiciness of the shrimp. Everything was super easy to put together as well.

    I think you could get away with using two pounds of shrimp with the quantities you suggested. I covered my shrimp pretty well and had some leftover that I put in a spice jar. For the cilantro in the aioli, should that 1/4 cup be loose? I packed mine and thought it was a little too heavy so that might’ve been an error on my part. Next time I’ll either not pack it or use less.

    I made this and it was one of the best shrimp dishes I had ever had in my LIFE. I decreased the spice a bit in both the shrimp and the aoli but still amazing. Definitely a dish you have to make once in your life.

    So good! Hard to not give five stars. Tried the aioli prior to mayo and was skeptical at first. Everything went well together. I paired it with a cilantro, onion, and lime rice. Well done!
