Recipe: Sweet & Spicy Shrimp Skewers

This weekend's forecast for the mid-Atlantic is relatively mild, so why not cook another meal on the grill? This recipe is sweet with just a hint of kick. It pairs deliciously with plain couscous and a veggie side.

  • 2 1/2 tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp scallions, chopped fine
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Thai Sweet Chili Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Sriracha (or to taste)
  • 40 large (12.8 oz) raw shrimp, shelled and deveined (weight after peeled)
  • fresh cracked pepper 
  • oil spray
  • metal skewers or wooden skewers that have soaked for at least 20 minutes
  1. Heat a clean, lightly oiled grill, to medium heat
  2. Combine the mayo, scallions, sweet chili sauce and sriracha sauce in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Season shrimp lightly with pepper.
  4. Place shrimp on skewers so they have a finger-width worth of space in between them
  5. Add skewers to heated grill
  6. Grill on both sides for about two/three minutes each side or until the shrimp is opaque and cooked through.
  7. Carefully remove shrimp from grill and quickly brush sauce onto the shrimp.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
