Here's another tip, remember that you can also measure the amount of shrimp by pieces and people.

Now that we have the shrimp clean and they are super fresh, without the tail and without the shell, it is time to go find the ingredients that will make this dish your favorite.


    • Olive oil to taste
    • ½ onion
    • Salt and pepper
    • ¼ cup of sugar
    • 1 cup of water
    • ½ kilogram of medium shrimp
    • 2 cloves of peeled garlic
    • Ground chipotle pepper to taste
  • 6 pods of Don Zabor Tamarind
    • White wine
    • Chipotle sauce to taste


    1. Bring the tamarind to a boil in the water, remove the skin and seeds first. When it starts to boil, add the sugar. Stir until the consistency is smooth.
    2. Let the mixture cool and then grind it in a blender with the chipotle pepper and white wine. It depends on how spicy you like it, that's what you can add from the chipotle sauce.
    3. In a frying pan, heat the olive oil and then add the garlic with the onion (chopped). When the onion begins to look shiny and transparent, that's when you should add the tamarind sauce.
    4. Mix and move constantly, try it to season with salt or chipotle and let it heat for a few minutes.
    5. The shrimp are coming! Prepare another pan with olive oil, season the shrimp and cook. They will start to change color to a more pinkish hue. Flip them when they're done so they can fry on both sides.
    6. Remove the shrimp from the pan and serve on a plate, put the tamarind sauce we prepared on top and that's it.

    Just writing the recipe, we feel like it! And the truth is that it is simple, with ingredients that are easy to obtain and very delicious to pamper the best palates at home.

    If in doubt about how to serve it, you can accompany it with a delicious white rice, steamed vegetables, a cucumber and lemon salad or serve it alone as a main dish and garnish with sesame seeds. Some also give it a fun touch when they use skewers when cooking the shrimp (optimal for barbecues) and accompany the duck with a small glass of sauce to "chopear" to taste.
