Deviled Shrimp

Deviled Shrimp is an easy to make, super spicy shrimp dish. The shrimp are coated in a thick tomato sauce that's packed with spicy flavor from chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and cholula hot sauce.

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 (14-ounce) can fire-roasted tomatoes, drained
  • 1/2 can chipotle peppers in adobo, finely chopped or processed in a mini food processor
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon cholula hot sauce
  • chopped cilantro for garnish


  • Melt butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Add onion and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add garlic and cook 1 minute.
  • Add shrimp and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, just until they turn pink. You want them a little undercooked at this point because they will finish cooking later. 
    Remove shrimp with a slotted spoon and set aside. Leave as much of the onion and garlic in the pan as possible, but it's ok if some is stuck to the shrimp.
  • Add tomato paste to the skillet and stir it into the onion. 
  • Add diced tomatoes, chipotle peppers, orange juice, and hot sauce and cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Return shrimp to skillet and stir to coat in sauce. Continue to cook for about 2 minutes.
  • Serve with cilantro.


I like to use Cholula hot sauce, but any hot sauce can be used.
