I’m so excited to share this recipe because I love it so much that I actually made it twice this week. Shrimp is one of those things I tend to forget about and then when I do remember to cook them, I can’t get over how delicious they are. Especially when paired with some delicious spices and flavors, it really can’t be beat.

This recipe started out with me just putting random ingredients together that I had in the kitchen to make the marinade. This is how some of my best recipes start sometimes. Nothing planned, just organically coming together from me experimenting with whatever available ingredients I have. It’s just the best feeling when it turns out as amazing as these Lemon Curry Shrimp Skewers.

What is it about food on stick that makes them so much more tastier? These Lemon Curry Shrimp Skewers are the best cooked on the grill, but you can still enjoy them if you don’t have one. Just broil them for the same amount of time, or you can just pan fry them without putting them on skewers. Although, if you are like me, that’s definitely not as fun to eat!

    These look so easy yet oh so delicious! I’ll have to make them for sure because if there is one thing my kids love, it’s shrimp on a stick. Not my first guess as to a kid’s fave food, but it’s definitely up there for both of mine!
