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!

  1. Thanks so much for hosting this month Sue. Your shrimp sound amazing. I think I’ll have to make them for dinner because it would be rude to eat all the appetizers on the tray.

    • Makes a good dinner for two with rice and veg- you could double the recipe for more servings. Especially when you’re short on time.
