Loosely based on our Sweet and Spicy Honey Sriracha Chicken, these Sweet & Spicy Grilled Shrimp are quick and simple to make and taste amazing fresh off the grill. My husband and I enjoyed these while dining outside on the patio with some marinated mushrooms as a quick and simple lunch. Though these were a little too spicy for my 5-year-old daughter’s tastes, she did enjoy some plain grilled shrimp which were easy enough to whip up along side as we were grilling our lunch.
Reserving some extra sauce to baste the shrimp again once they are off the grill is my favorite way to serve this dish and doubling up on the skewers makes the shrimp much easier to flip when grilling.
