Spicy-Sweet Glazed Shrimp

Oh siracha, I think I’m in love with your spicy goodness. If you don’t have this stuff in your pantry yet, you should go and get some. It’s really great for marinades. Mix it with some honey and use it as a glaze for grilling.

This recipe I found in Martha Stewart’s magazine. I haven’t been really pleased with her Every Day Food one. Sometimes, she’ll have good recipes in there, and sometimes she doesn’t. Although, I’m pretty darn sure she isn’t the one coming up with the recipes. She probably has slaves working for her, in her kitchen. Try this marinade the next time you grill outside on top of shrimp or chicken! Use skewers, so that you don’t have spend a lot of time flipping the shrimp too.
