Omg. Do I really need to say more?

I’ve been obsessed with honey chipotle for some time now, and while it’s really just one sauce that doubles as a marinade, there are soo many uses for it, which totally makes my life easier. For this recipe, instead of marinating chicken in the honey chipotle sauce, I used large shrimp. You can use jumbo prawns too. The bigger the shrimp, the tastier it’ll be because those shrimp will be tender and succulent, just the way I like them. And hopefully you will too.

These honey chipotle shrimps are slightly smoky, spicy, and sweet. Together, the flavors are similar to a barbeque without all the hassle of firing up a grill. Since shrimps are easier to cook and has less of a surface area than chicken, you don’t need to wait long before the shrimp absorbs all that flavor. That means you can make this dish for dinner without having to plan in advance. Dinner menu set!

Of course, no dish is complete without a side. And I thought the perfect side to accompany these succulent shrimp is roasted garlic broccolini. I mean, tender vegetables smothered in roasted garlic? How much better can dinner get? I can devour roasted garlic anything by itself.

I know not everyone can get their hands on broccolini, which is a hybrid of broccoli and Chinese broccoli, and that’s okay. Because practically any vegetable will work in place of broccolini. You can try using broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, brussels sprouts, and so many other vegetables. The possibilities are endless.

First, preheat the oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly grease the surface with olive oil. Set the baking sheet aside for now.

While the oven is preheating, add diced chipotle peppers, adobo sauce, honey, chili powder, and salt in a large bowl. Mix until the ingredients are well combined. Now, add shrimp in the bowl and mix until all surfaces of the shrimp are covered in the sauce. Let the shrimp sit for a few minutes.

Place the broccolini onto the baking sheet and evenly distribute minced garlic over the broccolini. Drizzle olive oil over the broccolini until they are coated in the oil and then sprinkle a little bit of salt. Place the baking sheet in the oven and roast the broccolini for about 5-6 minutes until the side down is slightly charred. Turn the broccolini to the other side and roast for an additional 5 minutes before removing them from the oven.
