Today was Friday for me on my 9/80 week so another Gordon R Hells Kitchen menu meal.........

Started of by marinating the shrimp....
Honey, chipotle peppers w/adobe sauce garlic, water, lime juice, classic olive, and salt....

After 2 hours they were skewered in preparation for the grill.

The skewered shrimp were placed on preheated grill grated Weber for a nice sear!

Holy smokers this relish is BAM BAM!

Now the cilantro rice:
Sautéed minced garlic, onion, Serrano chili simmered with some chicken broth. Then blended with some broth, white wine vinegar, cumin and cilantro....this is mixed in with rice.....

the plate is made by a bed of rice with relish on the side and then topped with the grilled shrimp. It is garnished with spicy creme fraiche (creme, lime juice, smoked paprika, cayenne, diced jalapeño, and salt & creme, chipotle and adobo)

Nice very nice looking. Any idea what the temp on the grill grate was when you put the shrimp on? Curious cause I always manage to char/burn the honey on shrimp when I use it as a marinade on shrimp. :emoji_thumbsup: :emoji_thumbsup: :emoji_sunglasses:

Thanks chux!

For the grill grates.... judging by experience they were probably close to the 550 ish range. The shrimp was only on for about 2.5 mins per side. Shrimp doesn’t take long with that searing heat at all.

Thanks Jake, the flavor combinations is really nice! It seems like to might be really spicy but it is really not. You do have to run the kitchen fan cause it will cause tears while prepping. Lol

Civil, that is one absolutely divine looking meal sir. A simply gorgeous, magazine quality, 5-star meal. Excellent job and thanks for sharing one of my favorite meal that unfortunately I cannot make due to Tracy's aversion to anything that swims. I can however live vicariously through you till she heads out for an evening. Than I'm gonna tear these up!!
