Sweet and Spicy BBQ Shrimp hot off the grill, a summertime classic. Grilled to perfection in less than 10 minutes, this dish is as quick and healthy as it is delicious. I used a store bought BBQ sauce and to it I added brown sugar, honey and cayanne pepper. The results were mouth watering sweet and spicy shrimp that everyone went nuts over.
- 2 lbs of large tail on shrimp, deveined
- 3 green peppers, cut into large squares
- 2 onions, cut into eighths
- 1/2 cup store bought BBQ sauce.
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/8th cup packed browm sugar
- 1 teaspoon cayanne pepper
- 10 wooden skewers, soaked in water
In a shallow pan, lay the skewers flat and cover with water while you prepare your ingredients. This will prevent them from burning on the grill later. In a small bowl combine BBQ sauce, cayanne, honey, and brown sugar, mix well. In a large bowl combine shrimps, peppers and onions. Add the sauce and toss gently. Skewer the shrimps, peppers and onions on the skewers. I used 2 of each per skewer. On a preheated grill simply lay these out and allow to cook about 5 minutes on each side or until the shrimp take on a nice pink color. I like to remove them from the skewer and serve on a plate, but you can serve it with the skewer and all.
