Mojo Marinated Shrimp
- 1 teaspoon chipotle purée with adobo
- 1 orange halved
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 pound cooked shrimp peeled, deveined
- 1 tablespoon minced red onion
Put the chipotle purée in a blender and juice the orange into it. Add the salt.
Cut one of the orange halves in half again; and then cut that half in half to make an eighth of an orange. Cut away the pulp from the peel of that section, but leave the white pith. Dice the peel and pith as finely as possible and add to the blender. Grind chipotle, juice and orange in the blender to a coarse purée. Season to taste.
Put the shrimp in a plastic bag; add the purée and the onion. Seal tightly; refrigerate at least 1 hour.
Empty into a serving bowl and spear each shrimp with a toothpick.
