Secret Recipe Club: Firecracker Shrimp

Firecracker Shrimp
For this month's Secret Recipe Club, I received the blog Fried Ice and Donut Holes.  This month's decision was easy: Firecracker Shrimp was an obvious choice for me.  And for Miss F.  She loves shrimp.   These shrimp were so easy and so delicious.  I must confess that I devoured this entire plate.  I am a huge fan of Sriracha, I regularly go through the large bottle.  These shrimp have some heat, so if you don't like the spice, cut the Sriracha amount in half.  Please be sure to check out all the other amazing recipes this month in the links below.
Firecracker Shrimp

1 pound shrimp (16-20 count), peeled and deveined
2 tablespoons Sriracha
2 tablespoons olive oil
¼ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
4-5 garlic cloves, minced

Combine all ingredients in a zip top bag and add shrimp. Marinate for 20 minutes to 2 hours. Skewer shrimp and grill until opaque with a slight char, about two minutes a side. Alternately, melt a tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium high heat and sauté the shrimp about two minutes a side.

Yummy! I love shrimp and these look amazing! I can't handle too spicy so I might have to mellow them out a bit, but sure looks good. Great choice
