Shrimp & Toppings
  • 2 lbs of Shrimp
  • Lime Juice garnish
  • Chopped Cilantro garnish
  • ½ cup of Pineapples cubed
  • ½ cup of Onions cubed
  • 1 Orange juiced
  • 5-6 Garlic Cloves
  • ¼ cup of White Vinegar
  • 2 tbsp of Chipotle Paste
  • ¼ cup of Cilantro
  • 1 tbsp of Achiote Paste
  • 1 ½ tbsp of Ancho Chile Powder
  • 1 tbsp of Cumin
  • 1 tbsp of Pepper
  • 1 tbsp of Salt
  • 2 tbsp of Oil
  1. In a blender, add all the ingredients for the marinade and mix until thoroughly blended. Pour marinade over the top of shrimp and let sit in fridge for between 30 minutes to 1 hour. (Do not let marinade for more than 1 hour or shrimp will be too soft).
  2. Using Cowboy Charcoal, fill a full chimney of coals, light and let preheat for 15 minutes. Pour coals into grill and place into one pile for direct cooking.
  3. Pull shrimp out of fridge, take out of marinade & discard leftover marinade. Add shrimp to skewers and lay over hot coals for 4-5 minutes per side or until the flesh is white & no longer translucent.
  4. Once done, pull shrimp off, garnish with lime juice + chopped cilantro and enjoy!
