I can’t get enough of grilled shrimp skewers in summer. I am not sure about you but summer just screams seafood to me: honey sriracha shrimp kebab, peel and eat shrimp, summer seafood stew, grilled shrimp with kimchi miso butter, etc.

I have a very popular recipe Chili Lime Chicken that everyone seems to love. That recipe is extremely delicious and many readers have tried with success.
A few weeks ago, a reader left a message and told me that she turned my Chili Lime Chicken into Chili Lime Shrimp and everyone was begging for more. What a great idea! Hence I am sharing with you this amazing recipe today!
I made some slight modification to the recipe. I added sweet chili sauce to the marinade. The shrimp is mouthwatering, moist, juicy, succulent and bursting with the wonderful flavors of sweet chili, lime juice and garlic. Make a bunch of these shrimp skewers before the end of summer!!

Wow superr!! thanks for sharing… ? I will try this recipe
Just a quick Thank You for taking the time to post this… very good!
Awesome please try more recipes!
My Husband just happened upon this recipe, we had 2lbs of shrimp and didn’t know what to do with it. We’re so lucky to have found this recipe, it is now our go to shrimp marinade! It is so delicious!! It was a huge hit when we made it. We used a pellet grill to BBQ it and basted it with the marinade. ?
We doubled the recipe and we use Gochujang sauce for the chili sauce.
Hi Crystal, sounds so delicious. All my recipes are very good, please try more recipes on my site: https://rasamalaysia.com/recipe-index-gallery/
I have the chicken AND the shrimp marinating right now. So excited to eat them in a bit!
Great and super quick and easy to whip up when you’re headed to a river float. Which was just perfect-best tacos ever. Raves from all. Thank you for being there.
Oooh, that’s great that you love my chili lime shrimp recipe. Do check out more recipes on my site! :)
Just made this shrimp and it’s amazing!!!!! Do you happen to have a dip that would work well with them?
You don’t really need any dip! I would just eat them as is. :)
I make a lime aioli. Its just the zest of one lime, 1/2cup of mayo, and 1/2tsp-1tsp pepper. I usually just use the pepper mill until it looks about right but it probably is around that amount of pepper. And that is it! Super simple and everyones fave. It works great for sweet potato fries and on any shrimp or fish tacos. I make it first and let it sit in the fridge and meld the flavours, while i make the rest of the supper.
Awesome, such a great idea.
A winner! I was grilling 2 lbs of shrimp but only had 2 limes (close to 1/4 cup). I used fresh squeezed orange juice instead. Yummy!
Dom – orange juice is a great idea. :)
So yummy look good I want health look so good
