Saucy Grilled Shrimp: Light weight 4th of July Recipe

By August 8, 2012Thank God Im Natural

Seafood is a great lighter weight alternative for the greasier, heavier meats that you might typically grill for the 4th of July. These grilled shrimp, glazed with a creamy chili sauce, only amount to 140 caleries per serving (around 2 skewers). So, you won’t be feeling guilty for taking on another helping.

You will need:
For the Sauce:
2 ½ tbsp light mayonnaise
2 tbsp scallions, chopped fine
1 ½ tbsp Thai Sweet Chili Sauce
½ tsp Sriracha (or to taste)
For the shrimp:
40 large (12.8oz) raw shrimp, shelled and deveined
Fresh cracked pepper
Oil spray

Directions:
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 with 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.
