The perfect summer meal! With a slightly spicy sauce these Raspberry Chipotle Shrimp can be cooked on the grill or in your favorite pan for a quick weeknight meal.
After an unplanned two week break, Food Truck Friday is back with Raspberry Chipotle Shrimp Skewers! We could also just call it one of the easiest dinners on the planet. My kids adore shrimp and judging by the fact that within about 3 minutes they were fighting over the last piece I’d say this recipe was a huge success. Plus the fact it only took me a few minutes to make! When they eat this well and the work for me is minimal it quickly becomes a meal on regular and frequent rotation at our house. It’s perfect for a light summer dinner or to accompany another main course like some grilled ribeye.
Fire up the outdoor grill or if you don’t have one the indoor grill will work too. Even a grill pan will work just fine here. Just get it all nice and hot and these shrimp will cook up in a matter of about 6-8 minutes.
Skewer the shrimp then brush them lightly with a bit of olive or canola oil and sprinkle a bit of basic BBQ seasoning on them. Whisk together the 3-ingredient sauce. Grill the shrimp, brush with sauce and serve! Couldn’t be easier right?
Serve with additional sauce for dipping if desired and watch the shrimp disappear before your eyes!
