Shrimp in Chipotle Cola Sauce

Posted on December 19, 2011.



20-30 large shrimp, peeled and de-veined
1/2 cup diced white onion
8 cloves garlic, minced
4 ripe tomatoes, chopped
1/4 cup lime juice
2 cans chipotles, finely minced
1/2 cup coca cola
1/4 cup dry white wine
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
Salt & pepper
3 tablespoons olive oil


In a bowl, create the chipotle cola sauce by mixing the chipotles, cola, and lime juice. Mix thoroughly.

In a pre-heated pan on medium to high heat, add a tablespoon of olive oil and saute shrimp for 2 minutes. Remove and place shrimp in a bowl and toss in bowl with chipotle cola sauce.

With heat on high, add 2 tablespoons oil to the pan, then cook onion until slightly brown (about 2-3 minutes). Add garlic and cook an additional 2-3 minutes until softened.

Add oregano, salt and pepper, then deglaze pan with wine. Cook until wine is reduced (about 3 minutes).

Reduce heat to medium and stir in tomatoes with juice. Cook 4-5 minutes, then gently stir in the shrimp and chipotle-cola sauce. Cook until sauce is reduced (about 3-4 minutes).

Recommend serving over rice or thin pasta.
