“This recipe comes from The Art of Mexican Cooking. Very authentic. Update: Some may find this recipe a bit on the 'spicy' side so I've made notations to "adjust to taste" on some ingredients. On ocassion I have substituted canned tomatoes.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Season the shrimps with salt and pepper and lime juice and set aside to marinate for about 30 minutes.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan; add the drained shrimp (reserving any liquid), and sliced onion and fry, shaking the pan and tossing (or stirring) the ingredients, for about 3 minutes. Remove the shrimp and onion with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  3. In a blender jar, blend the tomatoes, chipotles, and their liquid, and garlic to a textured sauce. Reheat the oil, and add the sauce, and fry over high heat stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan to prevent sticking for about 8 minutes. Add the wine, oregano, marinade and salt to taste and cook for another minute. Add the shrimp/onion mixture and cook for about 2 minutes--for the shrimps should be just cooked and not rubbery.
