Grilled Bang Bang Shrimp Skewers

This yummy recipe is super easy and perfect for grilling out on these beautiful spring nights. We love to grill. I grill more than any other cooking style so it was fun to adapt this shrimp recipe from Skinny Taste. I love that this dish can be so versatile and served as an appetizer or an entree. It was a big hit at our latest dinner and fire-pit get-together.


1/3 cup Light Mayonnaise
2 Scallions, chopped fine
3-4 tbs Thai Sweet Chili Sauce
1-2 tsp Sriracha (or to taste)

For the Shrimp

40 large ( about 2 lbs) Raw Shrimp, peeled and deveined
Sea Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper
Cooking Oil


If you're using disposable wooden skewers, soak them in water at least 30 minutes before grilling so that they don't catch on fire. 

Warm up the grill on medium-high heat.

Combine the mayo, scallions, sweet chili sauce and sriracha sauce in a small bowl. Set aside.

Skewer your shrimp, about 5 per stick, leaving a little bit of space between each shrimp. Season with fresh ground pepper and sea salt.

Lightly oil heated grill. Grill shrimp skewers for 4-6 minutes on each side or until shrimp has pinked, is opaque and cooked through. 

Transfer skewers to platter and brush with sauce. Serve immediately.
