I always have a secret love for Asian food. Growing up Asian food was a common thing in my home. My mom used to make Asian Chicken Meatballs or noodles or Asian Glazed Chicken at least once every week for dinner and it was our favorite night!

Tips to make the Best Shrimp Skewers
- Do not over cook the Shrimps or else they will get chewy
- Remember to marinade the shrimps for at least 30 min
- Knead the Shrimps tightly into skewers so that they do not break apart.
- Tamari - you can use Tamari or Gluten Free Soy Sauce as an alternative.
- Spicy - Add more of Sriracha or Red Pepper flakes to make Spicy Shrimp Skewers.
- Sweet - if you want sweet Shrimp Skewers use more of the Sweet Chili Sauce or Honey in the marinade. You can also drizzle honey on top after grilling the Shrimps.
- Crispy Shrimp - Lightly dust the Shrimps with Almond flour or flour before grilling. This allows the marinade to stick to the shrimps and also they get very crispy after grilling!
Storing, Freezing & Reheating instructions
Refrigerate: Marinate the Shrimps and refrigerate in an aright bag for about a week.
Freeze: Freeze marinated Shrimps for 2-3 months. Remember to store it only in an airtight freezer friendly zip lock bag.
Reheating - Do not store cooked Shrimps as they will taste bad upon thawing. You can simply freeze the uncooked marinated Shrimps and go straight from Freezer to the oven. Grill for a little longer than you would do usually. (About 5 min each side)
