A blend of traditional spices like ancho chile powder, paprika, and more lends bold flavor to tender seared shrimp—perfectly contrasted by a bright, cooling combo of sour cream and citrusy tomatillo-poblano sauce drizzled on top. For even more vibrant flavor, we’re stirring fresh juicy orange and tangy pickled peppers into the trio of roasted vegetables served underneath.
