Another Super Bowl Lean Appetizer Idea...Skinny Bang Bang Shrimp

in health •  10 months ago

One of my favorite treats is Bang Bang Shrimp at Bonefish Grill. It does have a hefty amount of carbs, calories and fat. I'm thrilled to have found a "thinner" version that leaves me guilt free. It's also very easy and tasty! Try it instead of shrimp cocktail for a spicy change of pace.

Enjoy the big game (and Justin Timberlake's Half Time Show)! So, who's it going to be? Pats or Eagles???

INGREDIENTS
1 lb shrimp (about 50 shrimp; my favorite are Key West Wild Shrimp, cooked or uncooked. shelled or deveined.
10 skewer sticks (optional)
3 T plain greek yogurt
3 T chopped green onion, plus more for garnish
1½ T sweet chili sauce (I use Gramas brand)
½-3/4 T sriracha sauce
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes, use more or less according to taste and for garnish.

INSTRUCTIONS:

(If you're grilling on a grill, be sure to soak wooded skewers a couple minutes in water to avoid burning)
combine yogurt, onion, sweet chili sauce, and sriracha in a bowl and stir well. set aside. (if you want to make the sauce a bit thicker, do 2 T yogurt and 1 T light mayo)
place 5 shrimp on each skewer
If shrimp are raw:
grill on each side for 5-8 minutes, until opaque and cooked through
If shrimp are pre-cooked:
Place shrimp skewers on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for 5-10 minutes
Brush each hot skewer liberally with the sauce, on both sides
serve immediately.

Thanks @roger-that. My daughter does not eat shrimp, so she enjoys this made with chicken. Just grill or bake and top with this tangy, spicy sauce. Let me know if you try it.

Definitely going to try this. The sauce sounds especially good.

It's a great sauce @terezakumric. As I commented above, my daughter doesn't eat shrimp, but loves this on chicken. Thanks for stopping by!
