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. Delicious! Made these last night and we were all trying to determine who got the last few pieces of shrimp! My 13 and 14 year old boys declared they were Skinnytaste fans. We are all on a healthier kick these days and with two growing and very hungry boys, I got two pounds of shrimp. We only had 10.5 skewers (5 shrimp on a skewer) though, so not sure how our math went wrong-maybe the shells of the shrimp weighed more than I thought. Absolutely delicious!

  2. Perfect amount of heat. What a great way to eat shrimp. I added a teaspoon of housing sauce for some sweetness – yum!

  3. Thank you so much for always including the sodium count. I’m on a low sodium diet and it it SO helpful. All your recipes look delicious! Can’t wait to try!
