Don't make this if you don't like spicy dried-chile blends . . . but if you do, this is very good. Superfast & easy-to-make-to-recipe with a great contrast of the dry hot-crust red shrimp and the sweet corn relish. Gorgeous on the plate. Served with large chunks of avocado & mango dressed with cilantro & lime.

Surprisingly bland given the flavorful ingredients. I would not make this again.

tasty but nothing special.. a little bland. A nice, easy, light meal.

This recipe was delicous. I could not stop eating it. The ancho chile powder was really hard to find but worth it.

We just tried this and it was wonderful! I wouldn't change it at all. It was excellent and easily fits into a weight watchers menu!

I up the vinegar to 2 T and added 1/4 tsp each of smoked paprika and cumin during sauté, then added a can of rinsed black beans. Also added a 1/4 tsp of smoked paprika to the shrimp. Served with avocado and lime. Awesome the next day for lunch too!

Excellent recipe -highly recommended! We didn't have chipotle powder so ground & seived some dried japanese chiles instead -I loved it, but too hot for my wife, so we'll use chipotle powder next time. Note that you can dust the shrimp and make the relish ahead of time, then quickly cook & serve when ready. We'll also try one reviewer's suggestion next time -serve with large chunks of avocado & mango dressed with cilantro & lime.

This meal is great as a starter/entree. I have made it so many times!! Delicious and very quick to make.

Great, tasty, quick recipe. We will keep this one. While it shouldn't be too spicy for most, I have no idea how a couple of people say it is bland.

This is a fabulous recipe, and I have some great additions. Add canned black beans to the corn plus fresh chopped jalapeño to the relish. I also added a jalapeño with the onion,garlic, ginger, bell pepper mixture, but the heat from that was gone from the cooking , thats why I added the fresh jalapeño and cilantro at the end. Totally agree with others to increase the cider vinegar a little, and add chopped avocado on top. This chili powder mix for the shrimp is NOT hot..... who are these people who say it is??? I will be making this again very soon. YUM>>>>>>>

With a few modifications, this recipe could be a 5 star! We all loved it.. My suggestions - add black beans to the salad part.Also, 1 minute before taking it off the heat, add diced zucchini - this adds a bit of brightness and additional crunch. Finally - upon serving, squeeze fresh lime juice over the dish. Fantastic! PS - we used truvia instead of sugar and it was still great!
