Super-easy dipping sauces worthy of that hot shrimp you just grilled
While grilled shrimp is perfectly delicious on its own, a simple sauce can turn grilled shrimp into a whole new meal. From garlic butter to ginger-soy, we have the perfect dipping sauces for you to try out the next time you make a batch of grilled shrimp.
Garlic butter sauce
Making a garlic butter sauce is super simple. All you need to do is melt 1/3 cup of butter, add in 2 crushed garlic cloves with a sprinkle of dried oregano, and you can toss your grilled shrimp right in the mixture.
If you want to go more Asian for dinner, then make this dipping sauce. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup of soy sauce, 1/4 cup of sesame oil, 2 tablespoons of rice wine vinegar, 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1 tablespoon of minced ginger. You can even add in lime zest and 1 teaspoon of juice to add a little acidity to the sauce.
Spicy avocado sauce
Mash up 1 avocado with your desired amount of hot sauce, then dip your grilled shrimp in it. Yes, it’s essentially guacamole with hot sauce, but that’s why it's so good.
Lemon-yogurt dipping sauce
For a light and refreshing dip, combine 1 cup of Greek yogurt with the zest from 1 lemon, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 1 minced garlic clove.
Spicy mustard dipping sauce
Combine your favorite mustard (Dijon, yellow or whole grain) with 1 minced garlic clove, 2 tablespoons of chopped green onion and a pinch of red pepper flakes. It’s super simple but packs a punch.
