We had these alongside Ree’s Asian Noodle Salad and they were delicious! The cool, fresh flavor of the salad complemented the spicy shrimp perfectly, and grilling gave a nice smoky edge to the sweet/hot flavor. We will definitely be adding this to the rotation!

These shrimp are great over pasta with a little olive oil if you have leftovers the next day.

These were a perfect addition to a surf and turf dinner. I plan on making them again soon to throw onto a salad for an easy weeknight dinner.
