It’s better to use fresh shrimp, but if they aren’t readily available you can use frozen shrimp also. Just follow the defrosting instructions on the package.

This is a spicy dish, but if you prefer a milder version, skip the chipotle peppers and only use jalapeños with the veins and seeds removed.

Directions

  • 1 Start by preparing the sauce in a deep pan on the stove. Sauté the garlic using one tablespoon of olive oil, then add the tomato puré, salt and pepper.
  • 2 Separately grill the jalapeño chili peppers. Afterwards, put them in the food processor or blender with the chipotle peppers and blend with a little water. When finished, add the chili pepper puré to the tomato sauce mixture and continue to cook for 15 minutes.
  • 3 In a bowl, season the shrimp with cumin, salt and pepper. Then, in a separate skillet, add the remaining olive oil and cook the shrimp until they are pink in color.
  • 4 When cooked, combine the shrimp with the prepared sauce and stir well. Garnish with avocado slices and serve with a side of white rice.
