Spicy Grilled Shrimp Skewers

If you like spicy foods, this modified recipe from Traeger grills is for you. Shrimp are bathed in a garlicky Thai pepper marinade and then quickly grilled, resulting in tender, juicy shrimp with a bold flavor. If you’d prefer your shrimp less spicy, just reduce the amount of Thai chiles in the recipe.



1 lb. large shrimp, peeled and deveined

6-10 Thai chiles, or less if you like it less spicy

3 cloves garlic, peeled

1 Tbsp. Traeger Chicken Rub

¾ tsp. Sugar

¾ tsp. White vinegar

1 ½ Tbsp. olive oil


  1. If using bamboo skewers, soak in cold water for 1 hour before grilling.
  2. Place the shrimp in a medium bowl and set aside.
  3. In a blender or mini food processor, combine the Thai chiles, garlic, Traeger Chicken Rub, sugar, white vinegar, and olive oil and blend into a coarse paste. Note: If a milder flavor is preferred, reduce the number of Thai chiles to taste.
  4. Add the chile-garlic mixture to the bowl with the shrimp and toss to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, up to overnight.
  5. Remove the shrimp from the refrigerator and thread the shrimp onto the skewers.
  6. When ready to cook, preheat a grill to 450 degrees F. 
  7. When the grill is hot, place the shrimp skewers directly on the grill grates, close the lid, and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until the shrimp are pink and firm to the touch. Enjoy!
