Shrimp with Adobo Sauce

Way to go Weight Watchers!  This recipe was so good!  I subbed FF Fage Greek Yogurt for the sour cream and added onions & peppers, then served on brown rice for a complete meal.   Omitted the poblano.  Spicy....seriously!  So freaking hot!   My chef hubby loved.  Would be awesome with chicken too.

A super main course - complete with a homemade dipping sauce - for those who love spice.



  • To make dipping sauce, working in a small bowl, mash 1 tablespoon chipotle pepper in adobo sauce with back of a spoon; add sour cream and 1 tablespoon each poblano pepper and lime juice. Add lime zest, if using; mix well and chill.
  • To make shrimp, set a medium skillet over medium heat; add oil. When oil begins to shimmer, add remaining chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and remaining poblano pepper; break up peppers with back of a wooden spoon and cook until oil turns reddish. Add shrimp to skillet; cook until pink and no longer translucent, about 2 to 2 1/2 minutes per side.
  • Remove shrimp to a serving plate and drizzle with remaining tablespoon lime juice. Serve shrimp with dipping sauce on the side. Yields about 3 1/2 ounces shrimp and 2 tablespoons sauce per serving.
