I spent as much of the weekend outside as possible. I wanted to enjoy brunch on the deck, lunch in the pool, and dinner on the dock. I also wanted to test out my new Mother’s Day present: a shiny new grill! I knew the best way to break it in would be with my favorite spicy shrimp recipe!
I love the taste of sriracha with seafood, so we made a fun marinade for this dish. We also assembled a new grill to cook with. Keep reading for the simple recipe!
While the coals were heating up, I made a simple marinade for the shrimp using soy sauce, key lime juice, and sriracha.
Once you use the recipe below for the marinade, let your shrimp sit in the fridge for at least thirty minutes to give each shrimp a spicy flavor. You will also brush it on while your shrimp skewers are cooking!
We used a pound of shrimp to create six skewers. We seasoned with salt and pepper and then the marinade.
Once the grill is heated up, place your shrimp skewers on them. Brush the marinade over the shrimp every few minutes while turning. Check for doneness and enjoy!
