Sweet Baked Shrimp

75

I got this original idea from Ree Drummond and one of her recipes, but I didn’t have the right ingredients on hand and didn’t want to fire up the grill. SO I changed it around a bit and baked the shrimp in the oven and we loved it, so simple and delicious!! But watch out, they are very sticky!!

6 tablespoons apricot preserves
6 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon minced garlic
pinch of red pepper flakes
1 pound large shrimp-shelled and deveined
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Get out a sheet pan and spray it with non-stick cooking spray or put down a piece of parchment paper which will make for easier clean-up. Combine all ingredients except the shrimp into a microwaveable bowl, heat on high for about 1 minutes. Stir well and adjust the seasoning if necessary. (I added more red pepper flakes). Soak the bamboo skewers for about 30 minutes in water. Then skewer the shrimp and brush the sauce over both sides. Place the skewers on the baking sheet and bake for about 12 minutes or until the shrimp are done. Serve by themselve
