Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Since shrimp cooks up so quickly on the grill, I like to use about a tbsp. of sriracha hot sauce in place of the red pepper flakes. It's flavor gets permeated throughout the glaze, instead of getting little flecks of heat. But that's just me. I love spicy stuff. For a more tropical flavor you could use peach preserves, and put some pineapple chunks in between the shrimp!

I think this would work with other favorite fruit preserves also.

I LOVE THIS PAGE IT MAKE YOU HUNGRY AND A CHEF WE NEED MORE PLEASE AND THANK YOU VERY MUCH. LOVE YOU
