  • 2 pounds creamer potatoes
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 6 Tablespoons butter divided
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons garlic powder divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pound medium shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce from canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 cups frozen corn thawed
  • 1/2 Tablespoon chipotle chiles in adobo sauce minced


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Place the potatoes in a large pot of water and bring to a boil. Cook until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 12 minutes, then drain and return to the pot. Add the half and half, 3 Tablespoons of butter, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Then use a potato masher to mash to our desired consistency, and keep warm.
  • Place the shrimp in a large bowl and add the olive oil, cumin, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, adobo sauce and salt and pepper. Coat the shrimp in the mixture and then place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 6 to 8 minutes, until fully cooked.
  • Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over the stove and add the remaining 3 Tablespoons of butter. Toss in the corn and chipotle chiles, stirring to cook through and char slightly, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Divide the mashed potatoes among 4 bowl, and top with the spicy corn and roasted shrimp.
