I was looking for the main attraction for a 4 course Mother's Day brunch and stumbled on this recipe. WOW!!! These were a hit. I made them again the very next weekend they were so great! The only change I made (on accident) was instead of making the cilantro oil and then the chipotle vinaigrette seperatly, I made it all together (so it was Chipotle Cilantro Vinaigrette). It tasted great and I didn't see a reason to keep them seperate if you're going to pour both on the shrimp. Just be sure to grill the shrimp long enough. I was concerned I would over do it and pulled the first batch off the grill a little early. Make sure the pancetta (Italian bacon) is nice and done and the shrimp will be perfect. - 07 Jul 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made this for a Friday night get together we have every week. It was a hit. I poured a little of each sauce over the plate of shrimp after they were grilled as the recipe suggested and then my guests used the rest of the sauces for dipping sauces. I will definitley make this again. - 15 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was really good. The flavors from the pancetta, shrimp, chipotle, cilantro went very well together. To Joe Blue, not only did you butcher the spelling of "cilantro", OF COURSE it was oily. It's a cilantro OIL. - 30 Apr 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
