Diablo Shrimp


Excellent recipe. I have a Mexican eatery I have been going to, to get my Camarones a al Diabla. They do a good job, but living up the mountain and needing to drive down to the big city, eh, not so much fun. I made it as you wrote it... All gone that meal. no left overs. - Tony D Williams

ingredients + salt & pepper



– Rinse the dried peppers, then remove the stems and seeds. Set them into a large bowl and cover them with very hot water. Steep to soften.


– Drain then transfer the softened peppers to a food processor. Add the tomatoes, onion, serrano pepper, garlic, apple cider vinegar and salt. Process until smooth.


– Heat the vegetable oil in a pan. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper, then sear the shrimp on each side. Remove the shrimp and set it aside.


– Add the diablo sauce and reduce the heat. Simmer to let the flavors develop.


– Return the shrimp to the pan and toss. Simmer to warm the shrimp and cook it through. Serve.
