Spiced Shrimp for Fish Friday Foodies.

It's time for Fish Friday Foodies again. I've not been participating a lot the past few months,  but had to share my recipe for Spiced Shrimp on Stick this month. 
Spiced Shrimp on a Stick

Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm is our hostess this month and the theme is Seafood cooked outside.  
Honestly, I don't use my grill as much as I could. 
I don't.
I should use it more, but...
I also work as a cook, part time in a local seafood restaurant, and cook a lot of seafood. 
One of my tasks there is coming up with great lunch specials when I work, and this recipe or a variation may well be making an appearance. 

These are highly spiced Shrimp Skewers, which can be cooked on an outdoor grill, or on a flat top grill, or even on a pan on top of the stove. 
Although, I think they get a little more oomph when cooked on a grill. 
I served them with some buttered noodles, but think they would be even better served on top of a veggie stir fry.
Spraying them with some cooking spray before placing them on the grill, helps to keep them from 'sticking' to the grill, and aids in turning them over.

Spiced Shrimp on a Grill

These are a highly spiced Shrimp which would be perfect with a stir fry or can be served on top of buttered noodles.


  • 16 Shrimp - (32 count/lb.) Fresh or Frozen
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fruity Balsamic Glaze - I used a Fig Strawberry combo
  • 1/2 tsp. Five Spice powder
  • Wooden skewers
  • Non stick cooking spray


  1. Combine the water, vinegar, glaze and five spice powder.   Place in a small pot and bring to a boil.  Turn off the heat.  If using frozen shrimp pour the hot liquid on top of the frozen shrimp and let sit while the outdoor grill heats up.   If using fresh shrimp, let the marinade mixture sit and cool just a bit before pouring it over the shrimp. You don't need to let them marinade for more than a couple of minutes. 
  2. Remove the shrimp from marinade and thread 4 shrimp onto each skewer.  Spray each side with cooking spray, and then place onto the grill over high heat.   Grill on each side for about 2-3 minutes and remove from grill.  Serve with buttered noodles, or a veggie stir fry.
