  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 1/2 cups nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • Grated zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lb about 32 extra-large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Sriracha sauce
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro


  • Mince 1 clove of the garlic
  • In a medium bowl, combine 1/2 cup of the yogurt with the minced garlic, lime zest and pepper
  • Add the shrimp and toss to coat evenly
  • Cover with plastic wrap and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for exactly 1 hour
  • Meanwhile, preheat the grill for medium heat
  • If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 10 minutes

Prepare the dipping sauce:

  • Mince the remaining garlic clove
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the minced garlic, lime juice, soy sauce, fish sauce, brown sugar and Sriracha until the sugar is completely dissolved
  • Add the remaining 1 cup yogurt and stir until smooth
  • Top with chopped cilantro
  • Remove the shrimp from the marinade and allow the excess to drip off
  • Remove the skewers from the water and thread 4 shrimp onto each skewer
  • Grill until the shrimp are pink and cooked through, turning them over once, 1 to 2 minutes
  • Serve warm, with the dipping sauce alongside
