Tasty, juicy shrimp with flavors of Sriracha, lime and ginger make a perfect summertime meal.
Recipe type: Seafood
Cuisine: Seafood
Serves: 2 lbs
  • ¼ c. Sriracha sauce
  • ¼ c. olive oil
  • ¼ c. packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tb. rice vinegar
  • 3-4 green onions, sliced thinly
  • ~10 Makrut lime leaves, shredded
  • 1” piece fresh ginger, peeled & grated
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or mashed
  • 2 lbs. extra large shrimp (~26/30), shelled but w/tails
  • Handful fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Lime wedges
  1. Combine all marinade ingredients in a 1-gallon, sealable plastic bag and squish the bag to combine everything.
  2. Once the shrimp are prepped, place in the bag and mix to ensure all are coated.
  3. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.
  4. Remove from refrigerator and place shrimp on skewers (metal or bamboo).
  5. Heat grill to high and place skewers on grate to cook first side about 1 minute then reduce heat to medium, cook another minute, then turn to cook other side about 2-3 minutes.
  6. Remove from grill and sprinkle with chopped cilantro and lime juice before serving. (P.S. if you have any leftover lime leaves, they make a great garnish!)
If you don’t have kaffir lime leaves (or can’t find them at your local Asian market), there’s no ideal substitute, but fresh lemongrass will add some wonderful flavor. In a desperate pinch, use lots of grated lime zest.
