Apricot Skewered Shrimp

10 Min

Sweet apricot preserves are kicked up with a little cayenne pepper in our recipe for Apricot Skewered Shrimp. This is a great change-of-pace way to serve skewered shrimp at your next cookout!

What You'll Need

  • 4 wooden or metal skewers
  • 1 1/4 pound large uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined (20 to 25)
  • 1/2 cup apricot preserves
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce

What to Do


  1. Soak wooden skewers in water for 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Thread 6 shrimp on each skewer; set aside.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl.
  4. Grill shrimp 6 to 8 minutes, basting both sides with apricot mixture about 3 times while cooking.



We recommend leaving the tails on the shrimp when you peel them because it makes them easier to eat and they look great that way, too!
