Spicy-Sweet Glazed Shrimp


Chili sauce and honey are all you need for major flavor. The glaze caramelizes on the grill for even more complexity. Also try it with bone-in chicken pieces or beef kebabs.

Source: Everyday Food, July/August 2012


  • Vegetable oil, for grill
  • 2 tablespoons spicy chili sauce, such as Sriracha
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 pounds extra-jumbo shrimp (about 32 total), peeled and deveined (tails left on)
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Heat a grill or grill pan to high. Clean and lightly oil hot grill. Stir together chili sauce and honey. Assemble kebabs (using 2 long skewers for each, threading 1 skewer through head end of shrimp and 1 through tail end); season with salt and pepper.

  2. Grill until shrimp begin to turn opaque, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip, brush liberally with glaze, and cook until opaque throughout, 3 to 4 minutes. Brush with more glaze and serve.

Cook's Notes

Here's a great trick: Double up on the skewers to make shrimp easier to flip.

    I tried it as a glaze for chicken, as well as, shrimp. It was delicious!

    I love spicy, but this is leaving a burning pain in my mouth post-meal from the chili oil. I used Kikkoman sriraracha. I also don't think the flavors melded well, and it was more like a distinctive honey glaze with a distinctive sriracha sauce. I would add one more ingredient like garlic as it seems to be missing something.
