I love making quick and easy shrimp skewers for a lazy summer night. A few of my favorites are Grilled Shrimp Scampi, Grilled Pesto Shrimp Skewers, and Bangin’ Grilled Shrimp Skewers.

Every summer I make a this Kansas City Style BBQ Sauce to use over chicken, pulled pork, or whatever I feel like grilling. Last week, I used it on shrimp skewers inspired by an appetizer we had while taking a day trip out East. It was served with guacamole, and he loved the combination, so I recreated it with my guacamole recipe on the side (calories below are for shrimp skewers only, guacamole is extra). It’s super easy, and the BBQ sauce makes enough for several recipes. Of course, if you prefer to buy jarred BBQ, that would work fine also.
