Let’s talk about how we make this, shall we?
Grilled Shrimp and Sausage Skewers Ingredients
- Smoked Sausage. 1 package, I used Eckrich Turkey Skinless Smoked Sausage Rope.
- Shrimp. 1 pound, peeled and deveined (24 pieces).
- Jalapeno Peppers. 3-4, sliced into ½ inch rings.
- Red Bell Pepper. 1 large, sliced into ½ inch chunks.
- Garlic Powder. 1 tablespoon.
- Chili Powder. 1 tablespoon.
- Salt and Pepper. To taste.
- Spray Oil. As needed.
- Wooden Skewers. 10-inch, for grilling.
How to Make Grilled Shrimp and Sausage Skewers – The Recipe Method
First! Let’s gather up our ingredients. Here they are.
Make your spicy chili glaze by whisking together a bit of gochujang, rice vinegar, lemon juice and salt. If it is too thin for your tastes, add in a bit more gochujang.
Next, slice the Smoked Sausage into ¾ inch slices. You should wind up with 24 pieces total.
Using 10-inch wooden skewers, pierce each with a slice of sausage, a jalapeno slice, a piece of shrimp, then a slice of red bell pepper. Repeat. Each skewer should hold 16 pieces.
Sprinkle each skewer with garlic powder, chili powder, and salt and pepper to taste.
Next, fire up your grill to medium heat and lightly oil the grates. Set the shrimp and sausage skewers on the grill and brush them with the chili glaze.
Grill for 4-5 minutes, then flip and brush them again. Cook another 4-5 minutes, or until the shrimp is cooked through and the peppers soften up.
Drizzle with freshly squeezed lemon juice and serve them up!
They are incredibly tasty and perfect for your easy family meals. And super EASY! Time-saving Tip: Skewers can be made ahead of time for parties or large families and grilled all at once!
Isn’t it AWESOME when big flavor takes practically no work? I think so!
