Sweet Heat Goodness!!

It's pretty much mandatory in our family to cook out for the 4th!!  For the most part we usually have the standard...hot dogs, hamburgers, and baked bean type of meal....and don't get me wrong.....I LOVEE all of those foods, however this year we decided to change it up a little bit....we added a little extra goodness to our plate !!  Sweet Heat Shrimp!!.....and ohhhh how sweet it is!!!!  If you taste one, you will find yourself NEEDING more and more and more!!....get ready for the addiction!!!  It's a good one to have!!!




Step ONE:  Buy fresh or frozen shrimp.  We went the easy route and bought pre-cooked frozen shrimp!  Thaw them out, and skewer them up!!  We only had four skewers so as you can see we packed those bad boys as close together as we could!!!  Lightly salt and pepper them......




Step TWO:  Next create the special sauce!!  Daddy K and I just made this up as we went....I have no proportions for you (sorry)  We simply kept adding ingredients until it tasted good!! (That's usually how we roll in the kitchen!!)  We mixed together.....Olive Oil, Butter, Frank's Sweet Heat Pepper Sauce, Honey, and Garlic Powder......





Step THREE:  Throw your skewers onto to grill!  Shrimp does not need long to cook, so you need to work fast!!  Take your grill brush, and evenly coat the shrimp with our special sweet heat sauce!!




Step FOUR:  Flip the shrimp then repeat the glazing process!!  After each skewer is coated well, they should be ready to come off of the grill!  


And that is it!!  So simple, yet so satisfying!!!  To recap....here is our ingredient list......

Olive Oil
Butter
Frank's Sweet Heat Pepper Sauce
Honey
Garlic Powder
Sea Salt
Black Pepper
Fresh or Frozen Shrimp


Did you cook anything special for the 4th??


P.S..... To see the parties I am linking to go HERE

  1. Thank you for sharing - will have to try it this weekend. Our 10 year old is a seafood freak.

    We make fresh blueberry iced tea - simple and yet so sublime. I heat a cup of frozen blueberries with 2 cups water, after about 7 minutes I add 4/5 tea bags (our fave is the decaf Darjeeling, any brand), bring to a boil then let simmer 4 minutes. Strain into container with 1/2 cup sugar more water and ice cubes - refreshing! I add lemonade for the kids in a separate pitcher. It doesn't look blue, of course, but the red is so pretty. xoxo michele
