Honey Sriracha Shrimp Skewers
By Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime
My recipe of the day for today is honey sriracha shrimp skewers for Fish Friday Foodies blogging group, as my blogging friends and I share recipes for seafood that are suitable for entertaining.
I have to say right off the bat the thing I love about these the most is that you can marinate and put the shrimp on the skewers before a party, have them ready to go, then pop into the kitchen and put them under the broiler for a short three minutes and they are done.
Because one of the most annoying things that can happen with a party is not running out of food, burning the food, or even an unwelcome guest. To me it is being stuck in the kitchen getting things together while everyone else enjoys themselves.
A hostess should never have to feel like a hired caterer.
These are also nice in that the recipe will serve two people as a main for a dinner party, or 8-10 as a hot appetizer on a buffet. Combined with a few other appies, you have everything you need for nibbles.
The flavor is a nice sweet and spicy flavor that allows the delicate taste of the shrimp to shine through while bringing a little heat at the same time. Very much a flavorful seafood treat!
