I’ve had it on my mind to turn my popular Bangin Good Shrimp recipe into an easy summer dish, skewers grilled to perfection. Now that the weather is warmer, we’ve been grilling almost every night. The excitement of being able to grill again and not dirty my kitchen is always great!

These make a fabulous appetizer, 2 skewers would be a perfect starter to any party paired with Asian Cabbage Mango Slaw or you could turn it into a weeknight meal served over Edamame Fried Rice. Enjoy!!

What is the best way to grill shrimp?

The easiest way to grill shrimp are on skewers. This makes it easy to flip and serve without any falling through the grill. My tip  to using wooden skewers is soaking them in water, prior to grilling, for at least 20 minutes. This prevents it from burning and cooking along with the food.

  1. These are soooooo good and so easy. Will definitely be making this recipe again. 
    I will be adding this to my many skinnytaste recipes . Thank you.

  2. This was delicious! We may or may not have licked the plate. The only substitution we made was that we found G Hughes brand Sugar Free Thai Chili Sauce and used that instead of regular. We did not change the amounts. We will most certainly be making this again and again!

  3. This was super easy and delicious.  Instead of skewers I did the shrimp in a pan with some veggies and tossed with rice noodles – this sauce was fantastic! 

  4. Excellent!  Bravo!  Love this is only 2-pets on WW Purple!  Thanks so much, love ALL your recipes, please keep them comin!  

  5. This was easy & delicious. I served over rice. Don’t even have to skewer & grill. Cook shrimp, coat with sauce. Put over rice & serve.  My guests loved it!

  6. I would love to make these atop a salad of Romaine, but I’m stumped as to what would make a good dressing? We enjoy the Bangin’ Shrimp on the cabbage, but one person in our group cannot have cabbage. Any suggestions?

  7. Thank you Gina!  Your recipes are the reason for my WW success this time around. Between this site and your cookbook the family doesn’t even realize I’ve lightened up their food too. Everything is delicious.

  11. Very delicious-would have been At on the grill, but we were tired & hungry, so I just made them on my Griddler in the house. Still quite tasty and really loved the sauce!

    Question about the points. So it’s 3 points + for 10 shrimp? That seems low should I count 2 skewers as 6 points +?

    Thanks 🙂

  14. Tried this for the first time tonight…..Excellent.  Will try the sauce on some Mahi Mahi next.  
    Will make again

  15. Oh, my goodness! This sauce is to die for! I have never been disappointed with a Skinnytaste recipe, but this shrimp is dreamy and exceeds expectations.. The sauce drizzled over grilled asparagus, as a substitute for Hollandaise in Eggs Benedict, to flavor deviled eggs. Oh, the possibilities. Thank you, Gina!
