Bagin' Grilled Shrimp Skewers

Photo and recipe from Skinny Taste

Stop what you are doing and make these immediately.  They are low-cal, low-fat, gluten-free, easy to make, and absolutely DELISH!!!!!  Gary LOVED them (but please, no one mention to him that there is mayo in the sauce, or he will decide that they are gross!).


  • 2 1/2 tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Thai Sweet Chili Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Sriracha (or to taste)
For the Shrimp:
  • about 40 frozen uncooked shrimp
  • fresh cracked pepper
  • oil spray

Combine the mayo, scallions, sweet chili sauce and sriracha sauce in a small bowl. Set aside.Soak wooden skewers in water at least 20 minutes (or use metal ones to avoid this step). Season shrimp lightly pepper. Place 5 shrimp on 8 skewers.
Heat a clean, lightly oiled grill to medium heat, when the grill is hot add the shrimp, careful not to burn the skewers. Grill on both sides for about 6 - 8 minutes total cooking time or until the shrimp is opaque and cooked through.
Set shrimp aside on a platter and quickly brush sauce onto the shrimp; serve immediately.

I made them with our favorite cilantro lime rice, which I make at least once a week.  Here are my photos of our yumtastic dinner. :)
