I discovered this recipe for chipotle-lime glazed shrimp, taken from Cook's Illustrated, over at Ezrapoundcake, and I just had to try it out. Chipotles? Check. Limes? Love 'em ... check check. Shrimp? Absolutely. The reality, however, was a LOT more spicy than I'd expected--and I can handle a fair amount of heat. Around the house, these shrimp are now known as hellfire shrimp--tasty, but they'll knock your socks off, almost literally. In the interests of cooking science, and my love of tasty shrimp, I'm going to retry this soon, possibly with different chipotles and/or adobo sauce.
