Here in California the weather is nice enough that we can grill almost year round, which is great because it’s one of my favorite cooking methods. I come up with the recipes and my husband mans the barbecue. This recipe for grilled lemon sriracha shrimp is one of his favorite meals and my dad happens to love it too. With Father’s Day approaching I thought it made sense to share their favorite with you so that you can also make it for the fathers in your lives. 

How do you make sriracha shrimp?

This grilled sriracha shrimp recipe is super easy. The shrimp is simply marinated in a combination of olive oil, lemon juice, honey, soy sauce and sriracha. I used an extra large size shrimp (under 15 count) but you can use smaller shrimp if that’s what you have on hand, they’ll still be great. The shrimp gets threaded onto skewers and then grilled to perfection.

I kept the sriracha in this recipe at a modest amount because I wanted to be sure that the shrimp wouldn’t be too spicy for the kids. You can absolutely increase the sriracha if you or your dad prefer a spicier kick.

You can either serve these shrimp as is on the skewers, or remove the shrimp from the skewers before serving. I like to serve my shrimp with a grilled side dish such as asparagus foil packets or loaded potato packets. The shrimp are also great served over rice or with a loaf of fresh bread.

We make these shrimp all summer long, I love how quick and easy this recipe is!

  1. Looks delish! I pinned this.
    Hi! Stopping by from Mom Bloggers Club. Great blog!
