These Bang Bang Grilled Shrimp Skewers are the bomb! The spicy, salty, sweet combination of the creamy chili sauce is what makes them so good.
Bangin’ Grilled Shrimp Skewers
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.
