"The spicy, salty, sweet combination of the creamy chili sauce is what makes these shrimp so delicious. These make a fabulous appetizer; 2 skewers per person would be the perfect starter to any party. This healthy Bang Bang Shrimp from Gail's Skinny Recipes is a healthy choice and will help you to stay on a healthy eating plan. If you don't like really spicy, just cut back on the sriacha, but don't leave it out, as it adds lots of flavor to the sauce. If your not familiar with it, Sriracha is a type of Thai hot sauce. You can find the Sriracha and Thai Sweet Chili Sauce in most grocery stores. It is usually in with the Tabasco or Frank's Red Hot sauces. Just ask your grocer if you can't find it. Feel free to substitute chicken or fish if you don't like shrimp or are allergic to it.

Step 1

Soak wooden skewers in water at least 20 minutes (or use metal ones to avoid this step).

Step 2

Season shrimp lightly with pepper.

Step 3

Place 5 shrimp on 8 skewers.

Step 4

Heat a clean, lightly oiled grill to medium heat. When the grill is hot add the shrimp. Careful not to burn the skewers.

Step 5

Grill on both sides for about 2-2 1/2 minutes per side (4-5 minutes total cooking time), or until the shrimp is opaque and cooked through. I brush on some of the sauce half way through cooking time, because I like the sauce warm. (Some like it hot and some like it cold. Use it whichever way you like it). You can heat up the sauce in the microwave if you like it warmed. 30-45 seconds is about right for me.

Step 6

Set shrimp aside on a platter and quickly brush sauce onto the shrimp. Serve immediately.

Wow Lin, these shrimp were delicious! I loved the sweet heat and Dennis ate his and some of mine. I grilled them on medium heat for 4 1/2 minutes and they were done perfect and they were tender as could be. A do again real soon when the kids are here for a barbecue.

We made these with your shrimp pasta salad and it made an extremely delicious combination. We loved the shrimp with its spicy and sweet deliciousness. Don't overcook them, because they only take a couple of minutes on each side to be done just right. We will have these many times!
