SWEET AND SPICY MARINATED GRILLED SHRIMP — Grilled shrimp marinated in a sweet and spicy tomato based sauce.
We love grilling at my house, and this Sweet and Spicy Marinated Grilled Shrimp is one of our new favorites!
Of course, living in Colorado, the weather doesn’t always cooperate when we want to grill. The spring is especially unpredictable. It can be snowing one day and 75 degrees the next!
Which is why I love my Hamilton Beach Indoor Searing Grill. It allows me to grill indoors, any time of year!
This grill has so many great features! The adjustable temperature control and high searing temperature really take the guesswork out of grilling.
A light will even indicate when your grill reaches the desired temperature. But I really love that this compact indoor grill can be used regardless of weather.
It’s also easy to clean–the removable hood and drip tray are both dishwasher safe.
It worked perfectly for this grilled shrimp recipe, which starts off with a sweet and spicy marinade.
I like to use a zip-top bag to marinade my shrimp for about an hour before grilling. And the great thing about shrimp is that it cooks up in practically no time. Which makes it perfect for busy week night meals.
My family has no idea this recipe is so easy, and they feel like they’re eating in a fancy restaurant!
I like to serve this shrimp with a side of rice pilaf, but mashed potatoes, grits or a green salad are also great options.
