These shrimp skewers are fast to make and delicious to eat!  Pair with a salad or roasted veggies for a great summer meal.  This marinade could also be used with chicken or tofu.



  1. Make marinade by combining the sesame oil, soy sauce, chili garlic sauce and minced garlic.
  2. Place shrimp and half of the marinade in a ziplock bag for at least 15 minutes to let flavors blend.
  3. Thread shrimp onto skewers (discard any marinade left in bag).
  4. Grill 2-3 minutes on each side, or until shrimp is cooked through.
  5. Brush with remaining marinade and garnish with sesame seeds if desired.


Makes 2 skewers. Count each skewer as: 2 protein (group 6) and 1 fat (group 7).
