Chipotle BBQ Roasted Prawns Recipe

The secret is in a great marinade and Rootham’s Chipotle BBQ Dipping Sauce is the perfect nominee. – Roothams

Recipe courtesy of Rootham Gourmet Preserves.


  • 25 or more Raw Prawns (Shrimp), peeled and deveined
  •  Chipotle Barbecue Dipping Sauce
  • a few lime wedges, for garnish


Place the prawns in a resealable bag and cover with Chipotle BBQ/Dipping Sauce. Squish the contents around to ensure the prawns are covered completely. Freeze, or refridgerate for use within 2 days.

When you are ready to serve the prawns preheat oven to 425F. Lay the prawns on a parchment-lined cookie sheet in a single layer. Place pan in the oven and cook for 2.5 minutes, then flip the prawns over and cook for another 4 minutes. Remove from oven and serve with lime wedges.

(Both Shrimp and Chipotle Barbecue Dipping Sauce may be found at Herma’s.)

Another Chipotle Barbecue Dipping Sauce Option?

Rootham’s Chipotle Barbecue Dipping Sauce is also delicious poured over spare ribs. Mmm…finger licking good.

Featured Cheese


by Charles Arnault from France

Named for a little farm town in France, Morbier is easily identified because of its black layer of tasteless ash which separates horizontally through the middle.


Long ago Morbier was created from left overs of Gruyere de Comte and used for personal consumption by the cheesemakers themselves. A layer of the morning milk would be separated from the evening milk with a line of ash.

These days, however, it is made with only a single milking. To keep tradition alive, ash is continued to be added as a signature line right down the middle.


Morbier is a semi-soft cheese that tastes like nuts and fruit while also carrying with it a fresh aroma of hay.

How to Serve

Lovely served all by its lonesome or as a nice addition to a beautiful cheese platter, Morbier is also great on sandwiches and melts beautifully when used in a grilled cheese sandwich.

Try pairing with Gewurztraminer or Pinot Noir.

Have a lovely weekend! We look forward to seeing you in the days to come.
