Sweet Chili Shrimp

INGREDIENTS;

  • 1 1/2 pounds uncooked large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tbsp olive oil butter (stovetop version only)

Sweet Chili Marinade;

  • 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce 
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • salt & pepper to taste

Glaze;

  • Reserved marinade (in directions)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tsp cornstarch

Preparation;

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the Asian Sweet Chili Marinade Ingredients. Measure out 1/4 cup and add this to a large freezer bag along with shrimp (the remaining Marinade will become your Glaze). Marinate 30-60 minutes.
STOVETOP DIRECTIONS; Discard Marinade and pat shrimp dry. Melt olive oil butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add shrimp and cook just until opaque, about 3 minutes. Remove shrimp to a plate.
  • Whisk 1/4 cup water and 2 tsp cornstarch to the reserved Marinade/Glaze. Add to saucepan and simmer until thickened. Add shrimp and toss to combine.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in sriracha for more heat if desired. 
GRILL DIRECTIONS; Drain and discard marinade. Thread shrimp onto skewers (if using wooden skewers, soak skewers for at least 30 minutes in water).
  • Grease grill and heat to medium high heat. Grill shrimp for 3-5 minutes on each side or until shrimp has become pink and firm being careful to not overcook.
  • Whisk 1/4 cup water and 2 teaspoons cornstarch to the reserved Marinade/Glaze. Add to saucepan and simmer until thickened (you can do this on your grill). Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in Sriracha for more heat if desired.
  • Generously brush shrimp with Glaze or use as a dip.
