Hot Honey Shrimp Skewers

Jun 2021

As a foodie, I love these warmer months because grilling takes over my meal-making and planning. What better way to celebrate the onset of “grill season” than with these Hot Honey Shrimp Skewers.

Hot Honey (HH) is pretty much the food trend of the decade and why not add that delicious flavor to some beautiful and simple shrimp skewers. You can either make your own HH by following my simple homemade recipe HERE or use your favorite store bought brand.

Spicy and sweet HH is the perfect partner for shrimp and veggies and is the base for this shrimp skewer marinade. You’ll want to be sure and have some reserved HH on hand for an “after grilling” drizzle.

Once the marinade is assembled, it’s just a matter of assembling the skewers with veggies and shrimp, brushing with the HH marinade and then grilling.

The flavors of these grilled fresh veggies and sweet shrimp are the perfect partner to this herby, spicy, sweet Hot Honey marinade. But I think steak, chicken and even lamb would be equally delicious. This recipe is so simple and perfect for an easy grill night!

To prepare the Hot Honey marinade, combine all marinade ingredients in a small bowl.

Set aside marinade and prepare skewers.

Once the bamboo skewers have soaked in water, assemble the shrimp skewers alternating shrimp and veggies until all the shrimp has been skewered.

Brush the veggies and shrimp (on all sides) with the marinade, season with salt and pepper and cover. Place in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.

Prepare charcoal or gas grill according to manufacturer’s instructions.

Once the flame has reached temperature, place the skewers on the hottest portion of the grill.

Grill for 2-3 minutes per side, until shrimp are cooked through and pink.

Serve immediately with extra Hot Honey as garnish.
