Hot Honey Grilled Shrimp

Shrimp are coated in sweet heat thanks to hot honey and Sriracha. If you want to take the heat down a notch, use regular honey instead.

  • 1 tablespoon hot honey (see Tip)

  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha

  • 1 ½ teaspoons grated fresh ginger

  • 1 large clove garlic, grated

  • teaspoon salt

  • 1 pound large shrimp (21-24 count), peeled and deveined

  • 1 scallion, sliced

  • Lime wedges for serving


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.

  2. Stir honey, Sriracha, ginger, garlic and salt together in a large bowl. Add shrimp and toss to coat. Let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.

  3. Thread the shrimp onto 4 metal skewers. Grill, turning once, until lightly charred and cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes total. Sprinkle with scallion and serve with lime wedges on the side, if desired.


Hot honey is honey infused with chiles that give it a subtle kick. Look for it online or in well-stocked supermarkets or make your own by combining honey with hot sauce or a pinch of cayenne.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
