Pepper and Lime Shrimp Bake recipe

2 min read

Make this seafood dinner for company because it tastes amazing, but takes very little effort to throw together. Use asparagus, Broccoli or a mix of the two. It’s all about what’s available for a decent price. Please note that a chipotle, or chilpotle, is a smoke-dried ripe chilli pepper used for seasoning. It is a chilli used primarily in Mexican and Mexican-inspired cuisines, such as Tex-Mex and Southwestern dishes. It comes in different forms, such as chipotles en adobo.
