Grilled Sriracha Shrimp with Sriracha Aioli


Click to enlarge

Grilled Sriracha Shrimp is good on its own merits, but my buttery aioli sauce is a lovely compliment. This sauce would also be delicious on grilled fish, grilled chicken or skillet seared scallops. I wish my husband had rotated the skewers so those pictured would have charred more evenly. But they all tasted GREAT and thats what counts! This recipe is suitable for all phases of Atkins and Keto diets. It is not suitable for Primal-Paleo lifestyles unless you can find a recipe for homemade Sriracha sauce. As I cant know how many shrimp you will eat, I am providing nutrition information for what I felt was a satisfying serving 1/3 lb. (5 large shrimp) with numbers for around 2 T. aioli, which is what I ate. You will have to adjust your numbers according to how much you actually eat. Divide the numbers for the shrimp by 5 to get the numbers for 1 shrimp.

1 lb. extra-large shrimp ( There were 16 in my bag), peeled, tail piece left on

stick unsalted butter, melted (4 oz.)

2 tsp. Sriracha sauce (or other bottled hot sauce of your choosing)

Dash each garlic powder and onion powder

Peal the shrimp, leaving tail shell on for a handle. Place on skewers and set skewers on a platter. Melt the butter in a small saucepan and add the Sriracha sauce and seasonings. Stir to blend and remove from heat. With a basting brush, baste both sides of the skewered shrimp with the sauce. Save the remaining sauce to baste the shrimp while the are being grilled.

FOR THE AIOLI: Process the following ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. Scrape into serving dish and place in refrigerator until shrimp is grilled and you are ready to serve. (Makes about 1/2 c. sauce or about 8 T.)

stick butter, melted

1 jalapeno, seeded, ribs removed (omit if you prefer)

Sriracha Aioli

c. fresh cilantro

Juice of 1 lime

Dash each salt and pepper

clove garlic, minced

Dash smokedchipotle chile powder

-1 tsp. Sriracha sauce (to your taste)

GRILLING THE SHRIMP:Prepare a charcoal fire. When coals are hot, Place skewers over coals and grill about 5 minutes on a side or until they are opaque. Baste with extra sauce in your saucepan. Use up all the sauce on the shrimp while grilling for best flavor. Remove the shrimp from the grill and either remove from skewers to a serving platter, or serve on the skewers if you prefer. Using the very large shrimp I used (16 per pound) I found 5 made a perfect serving size. Serve the aioli sauce on the side for your diners to use to suit their personal taste.
