Chef Brik Shrink Skewers

Time: 30 Mins
Feeds: 4

When the weather is warm, one of the best ways to bring people together is with a summer barbecue. Firing up the grill for an outdoor party is a summer classic, but that doesn’t mean you have to stick to a classic menu. In fact, after months of burgers and hotdogs, your friends will probably thank you for switching up the menu.

When it comes to grilling, one of my favorite recipes is this one, for Sweet N Spicy Grilled Shrimp Skewers, which I recommend pairing with All American Coleslaw. This meal doesn’t take hours of prep (it only takes 30 minutes to prep, in fact—though you’ll want to allow plenty of time for draining the cabbage for the slaw), but it tastes gourmet. The secret is in my Sweet N Spicy rub, which adds the perfect kick to this seafood favorite.
