THE RECIPE

Sriracha Shrimp Skewers

Staying healthy (and spicy) on Memorial Day

With Memorial Day around the corner, it’s time to dust off the grill and get ready for outdoor summer cooking. This year, in addition to hamburgers and hot dogs, offer something a little healthier but just as packed with flavor like these Sriracha Shrimp Skewers. Threaded onto soaked skewers, large, succulent shrimp are glazed with a sweet, spicy, and tangy combination of our favorite (and incredibly versatile) hot sauce Sriracha, honey, and lime juice. Since they cook so quickly, the shrimp just need a few minutes on each side and they’re ready to eat. Serve these up with a pitcher of Strawberry Sriracha Margaritas and you’ll have a Memorial Day menu worth celebrating.
