All you need is 10 minutes for this super easy to make, and most importantly super tasty and flavorful grilled appetizer! These Spicy Grilled Shrimp Skewers are perfect for your summertime grilling!
Ahhh sweet sweet summer, I can feel you just around the corner! Which means a majority of our meals are about to be al fresco and right off of the grill! In case you didn't notice, baby K numero dos has wanted all things shrimp, and these Spicy Grilled Shrimp Skewers made the baby very very happy 😉
Also, in case you missed it, all of our meals and new recipes lately are one thing (aside from shrimp apparently...): Easy. Like "We left the house at 6 am, got home at 6:30 pm, M needs to be in bed by 8 pm, and we need dinner" Easy. Which let me just say, we're living proof that you don't have to rely on fast food or microwaveable dinners because you don't have time. This recipe takes 7 minutes to prep and 3 minutes to grill. How much easier does it get than that? Not much. Especially if you clean the shrimp and marinade the night before! Also, don't forget
Juicy. Spicy. Super flavorful. Perfect for a sunny spring/summer weeknight! We topped some fresh spinach salads with and it was near perfect. The only thing it was missing was a crisp white wine!
