Honey Sriracha Shrimp Appetizer

Grilled shrimp makes an excellent appetizer in any season or for any occasion, including the holidays! Shrimp cooks quickly, so this recipe is a breeze to prepare with just 10 ingredients. The easy homemade marinade is sweet and spicy, and the dipping sauce would taste delicious with other finger foods, too. Try it with spring rolls, dumplings, or even chicken tenders! These shrimp skewers also work as a full meal when served over stir-fried rice or noodles.
