Grilled Apricot Spiced Shrimp

If you live in Seattle then you how miserable it can be during the summer when temperatures reach nearly 80 degrees or higher inside one’s home.  The reason for this is because most homes are not designed or built with hot heat in mind.  Poor ventilation without fans to push the hot air out means homes acting as if they are ovens.  The temperature indoors can reach at least 20 degrees hotter than it is outdoors which makes for one uncomfortable experience.  As far as cooking is concerned you can just forget about it.  Ovens remain off and finding refuge in air conditioned spaces or enjoying the outdoors become priority.

But if you own a grill, cooking outdoors with a pitcher of nice cold iced tea or lemonade can be a great way to enjoy a family dinner out home.  Today I have a great quick and easy grilled shrimp recipe which only takes a couple of minutes to prepare and grilling time is also minimum.  This is the beauty of cooking shrimp – fast and easy.

Seasoned with a blend of spices, apricot jam, and cider vinegar, the combination of this spiced glaze is both a little sweet and tangy which works beautifully with shrimp.  Not overpowering in the least bit, these skewers are perfect to add to a nice salad for the perfect outdoor meal.

On a side note, we’re away on vacation this week but I’ll be posting photos on Instagram (@savorysweetlife)  if you’re interested in following our adventure.

    Went to the website to get the recipe but only shows the Ingredients but not how too. Am I missing something?

    This makes me laugh! It is so hard to explain to outsiders how hot it is when the thermometer only says 85 degrees outside! I feel like there should be an alternative to the “heat index” that relates actual temperature to how well the average local home is equipped to deal with it: “OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON. 90 DEGREES. FEELS LIKE: 110″
