While in Ensenada, Rick Bayless had salsa negra (black salsa), a smoky chipotle-based sauce, over raw oysters. Here, he blends just a small amount of it with tomatoes to serve with grilled shrimp.

  1. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  2. 1 1/4 pounds large shrimp, shelled and deveined
  3. Chopped cilantro, for garnish
  4. One 15-ounce can diced tomatoes, drained
  5. 2 tablespoons canola oil, plus more for grilling
  6. 1/4 cup Salsa Negra with Chipotle
  1. In a blender, puree the diced tomatoes. In a medium saucepan, heat the 2 tablespoons of oil until shimmering. Add the tomato puree and cook over moderately high heat, stirring frequently, until very thick, about 7 minutes. Add the Salsa Negra and 1/3 cup of water and simmer until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Brush the shrimp with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over moderately high heat, turning once, until lightly charred and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Drizzle the shrimp with the sauce, sprinkle with cilantro and serve.
Make Ahead The chipotle-tomato sauce can be refrigerated for up to 5 days.

Suggested Pairing

Bright, juicy rosé.
