    Thai Grilled Shrimp is an easy dinner idea that the whole family will love. A great, healthier alternative that uses lighter ingredients but is still packed full of amazing flavors.

    You can even get the kids involved by having them join in threading the skewers. Everyone will enjoy these delicious grilled shrimp skewers! What is better during the summer months than food on a stick?

    Summer may be coming to an end and I don’t want to see it go. I love summer fruits, balmy evenings and flip flops. Luckily, hubby likes to grill year round, so at least I don’t have to forgo my love for food on the grill.

    Thai Grilled Shrimp- Healthy meal idea, easy dinner recipe with only 4 ingredients!

    Shrimp on the grill is one of the quickest meals you can make. Taking only 8 minutes, it will take longer to light and heat than it will to cook these Thai Grilled Shrimp.

    These grilled shrimp kabobs are also super healthy. Low in calories, I used light coconut milk to add moisture (you don’t want your grilled shrimp to get dried out!) and lime juice for flavor.

    The other key ingredient is Thai Seasoning. While you can easily buy a bottle at the grocery store, I like to make my own. If you have a spice grinder (or coffee grinder) it comes together in just five minutes.

    Thai Seasoning - a wonderful Thai spice blend make at home.

    The only ingredient that can be a little tricky is dried lime leaves. You can omit these, find them at an Asian grocery store or get them from Amazon. They are also used a lot of curry recipes, Asian dishes and will stay good for a long time, so don’t fret on how you will use them.

    I like to serve my Grilled Shrimp – Thai Style with Coconut Lime Rice and Spicy Green Beans!
