Roasted Shrimp With Chili-Lime Sauce for #SundaySupper

by Renee on September 30, 2012

Roasted Shrimp With Chili-Lime Sauce

Hooray for a short list of ingredients! I’m sure you feel that way sometimes when searching for something to cook. I have those times too. It is usually on a very busy day or when the pantry is bare. There are the times I entertain too. Preparing a spread of food for guests sure can make for a large grocery list. Roasted shrimp with chili-lime sauce can be an appetizer or a main dish served with a salad or sides. And it only has a few ingredients.

Roasting shrimp really brings out the flavor. It is the method I use most often to cook shrimp. Boiling or grilling is good for certain dishes. Boiled or steamed is best for shrimp arnean. Grilling is for when I am serving it with other grilled foods. No matter which way you cook shrimp, it is important not to cook it too long or it will be tough and/or rubbery.

The chili-lime sauce can be more or less spicy. It depends on how much chili powder you use. The recipe has 1/2 to 1 teaspoon and you can adjust to your taste. You could experiment and try different chili powders like ancho or a mix of other spices instead regular chili powder. The sauce base of butter and lime juice makes for a wide variety of options.

Are you wanting more recipes with a few ingredients? How about 5 or less? (Not counting salt, pepper, or water). The Sunday Supper team has put together a great big list for you. Check it out:

What a list to keep! Did you bookmark this page? You better do that now because you know it is something to save. I’m glad I have it to refer back to when I’m looking for five ingredient dishes.

I did not try them cold. I did however re-warm them a couple of days later and they were great. So they are a nice make-ahead dish too.

How did you know I love shrimp but am too lazy/eat too much starch? Although I may toss these with rice noodles because they take like 5 minutes to cook. Definitely a keeper!

Shrimp, chili and lime – doesn’t get much better than that!
