Chipotle Shrimp Salad

I love shrimp. It’s one of my favorite proteins and so versatile. A few months ago I made Chipotle Marinated Shrimp with an Arugula Pesto and Zoodles. It was delicious, but the shrimp were pretty spicy.

I had a bunch of the chipotle shrimp leftover from the recipe and had a stroke of brilliance. Why not mix it with mayo and eat it on sandwiches? Best idea ever!

This chipotle marinade is so simple. Canned chipotle peppers in adobe sauce are your friend. All the work is done for you and they are jam-packed with flavor.

They are quick marinade, shrimp do not need long to soak up the flavor, so this shrimp salad is ready in under 30 minutes. Chipotle shrimp salad ingredients

One Salad, Many Options

I photographed this Chipotle Shrimp Salad on Schar Gluten Free Baguettes (they are one of my favorites!), but you could also stuff mini French rolls (Udi’s makes some great ones!), but it goes so much further than bread!

Try this delicious, spicy, shrimp salad on:

  • a salad
  • in an avocado (like in this Aguacate de Palta!)
  • on gluten free crackers
  • skies the limit!chipotle shrimp salad on gluten free bun with avocado slices

Seriously, this is one of the best shrimp salads ever. After shooting this, I ate it for lunch with my stepmom and sent some to my dad. They loved it as well.

If you’re looking for something amazing to eat with this Chipotle Shrimp Salad, how about some Air Fryer Jalapeno Poppers from Vegetarian Mama? Gotta love all things spicy!

Shrimp is a great protein to add to your diet. Once your done making these sandwiches, be sure to try these Easy Crock Pot Fire Roasted Shrimp Tacos from Cotter’s Crunch!

Happy Gluten Free Eating!

  1. I absolutely love how simple and tasty this looks. I think it would be the perfect sandwich right now, my brother loves shrimp. Gonna share this recipe with him!

  2. We don’t eat shrimp due to an allergen BUT I’ve found that cauliflower is an amazing substitute. I’ll have to try that in place of the shrimp because that sauce sounds quite yummy.

  3. This looks delicious! My husband loves shrimp! He’s the fish eater in the family! I need to make this for him asap! Thanks for linking to the poppers!
