OMG! These were so easy and so delicious! I must admit, I did cut back on the chili-garlic sauce...I wasn't sure just how hot these would get. I threw everything into a ziploc bag and let it marinate for about a half hour. I threaded the shrimp onto the skewers and grilled - it doesn't get much easier than this. These were a perfect little appetizer!

Like the recipe is written, I skewered the shrimp and then basted, thinking it would be less messy than saucing them and then skewering. These shrimp were tasty and certainly easy to prepare.

Easy & delicious! I tossed the shrimp with the sauce - skewered and grilled - no basting - perfect. Thank you.

I loved this!!!!! Sriracha sauce is one of my favorite sauces to use on everything and this was just as I hoped, very spicy and sweet. I marinated my shrimp in this and then grilled. The sauce carmelized on the shrimp while grilling. Just delicious and so very easy. I served these shrimp on a salad with some fresh avacado, heart of palm, chick peas, tomatoes, and greens. Excellent!

This is a simple recipe that packs a ton of flavor! I didn't feel like grilling so I cooked mine on the stove in the marinade.
