Cilantro Dipping Sauce:


Shell, clean, and devein shrimp. I leave the tails on for aesthetic reasons. Pat dry with a paper towel.

In a medium-size bowl, mix oregano, thyme, lemon pepper, chipotle, salt, and black pepper. Toss shrimp thoroughly with mixed spices. Keep refrigerated until ready for cooking.

Heat oil in a well-seasoned iron skillet or nonstick pan over high heat. Wait until oil is smoking hot, then place about 10 shrimp in it so that each has enough room to lie on its side. Cook for approximately 1 1/2 minutes per side, or until shrimp is no longer translucent. Do not overcook.

Serve hot, or at room temperature, with cilantro dipping sauce. For that special surreal touch, serve shrimp piled up on a barbie doll.

Cilantro Dipping Sauce:

Blend cilantro and lime juice in a food processor or blender until cilantro is liquefied. Pour into a small bowl and use a fork to blend in sour cream until fully blended into a pale green sauce. Refrigerate until ready for use.
