Delicious Shrimp Recipe, from someone who doesn’t like seafood

I used to be a really “safe” consumer. I would not taste something I didn’t like the looks of, and grew up in a family where we only ate chicken. I had this weird aversion towards pepperoni for years(because I liked pigs), and when I eventually got over the aversion (still like pigs though), I tried breakfast sausage and loved it. The first time I ate shrimp was about 4 years ago…AND I despised it. I disliked the squishy texture, and how it sort of “burst” in my mouth – the whole thing grossed me out as if I was eating a large white wood grub. Blech! UNTIL, I tried the following recipe for grilled shrimp skewers. My sister-n-law introduced me to this at a recent dinner party and surprisingly, I went back for seconds!


-Medium Shrimp: Raw, Peeled, & Deveined

-Pepper & Salt

-PAM spray

-2 tbsp mayonnaise

-2 tbsp chopped chives (chop really small)

-2 tbsp Thai Sweet Chili Sauce

-2 to 3 tbsp.  Sriracha (somewhat spicy…so make sure and taste as you add more)




Set shrimp to side. Mix rest of ingredients together in bowl.


Add Sriracha to taste…


Thread your shrimp on your skewers. I put about 5-6 on each. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.


Baste with your “sauce”.


Heat Grill to medium heat. Spray with Pam. Lay skewers on grill. Shrimp to cook 3 minutes on each side, or until “opaque”. Brush more sauce on each side of shrimp when turning. ENJOY!

A few things I love about this recipe: 1. Kitchen does not smell like seafood afterwards, since you’re grilling. 2. Cleanup minimal 3. Fast AND Easy to make for a party 4. Low Calories!
