Summer time is my favorite season because it means ice cold drinks, relaxed nights and lots of grilling. I guess you could say I am the grill master in our home. My most recent grilled creation are these Spicy Shrimp Skewers with Buffalo Ranch Dipping Sauce. They feature Frank’s RedHot Sauce which is the most kick-ass hot sauce out there. I love the Original, but Frank’s RedHot Buffalo is perfect for Summer too! Check out their Buffalo Chicken Sandwich recipe below and visit their site for inspiration.
These Spicy Shrimp Skewers with Buffalo Ranch Dipping Sauce are so easy it is ridiculous. Between the dry-rub, grilling and whipping up the spicy dipping sauce- I think I spent maybe 10 minutes tops? Meals like this are ideal for our family when we plan after dinner dates. Sometimes we head to the gym, other times for a hike so not having to sacrifice taste for convenience is ideal.
For years I have always enjoyed Frank’s RedHot to enhance my meals. I am a huge fan of kicking my food up a notch and Frank’s RedHot makes that so easy. Frank’s RedHot is the perfect combination of flavor & heat.
At any given time we always have either a half or full bottle of every type of Franks RedHot made. Flavors include: Frank’s RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce, Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Wings Sauce, and Frank’s RedHot Sweet Chili Sauce.
Basically, I Put That $#!+ On Everything!
