The perfect quick and easy meal! With a slightly spicy sauce these Raspberry Chipotle Shrimp Skewers can be cooked on the grill or in your favorite pan for a quick weeknight dinner.How about we just call this the easiest dinner on the planet?! My kids adore shrimp and judging by the fact that within less than 3 minutes from when I set this on the table they were fighting over the last piece I’d say this recipe was a huge success. The fact it only took me a few minutes to make was the icing on the cake! When my kids eat this well and the work for me is minimal it quickly becomes a recipe on regular and frequent rotation at our house. It’s perfect for a light summer dinner or to accompany another main course like some grilled ribeye.
