Thai Chili Shrimp

This Friday is Theta formal, the “classiest” event of the year. A couple of your buddies got invited and the word on the street is some girl’s dad rented them a yacht with an open bar. There is no way you’re missing this one. Luckily, your roommate mentioned to you that the girl he is going with has a friend that wants to be set up. Well before making the commitment, you got to check out her Facebook. Problem is, she doesn’t have one. That’s never a good sign…

Well sometimes you need to just man up and do it for the story. Might as well make yourself something good before blindly being forced to spend an evening with this mystery sorority woman. Just like Theta, keep it classy and make some Thai Chili shrimp before your nautical adventure. You can even throw these on a George Foreman grill to make them a little more tasty. Devour these down, put on your favorite Ralph Lauren button down and tie, and pray that your date is at least a 6. A little pregaming the pregame never hurts in this scenario.


1 pound of shrimp with the shell and tails removed
1 Tablespoon of lime juice
1 Tablespoon of chili paste or Sriracha
2 cloves of garlic crushed
2 Tablespoons of soy sauce
1 Tablespoon of  sesame oil
1 Tablespoon of ketchup


1. Begin by adding all the ingredients except for the shrimp into a bowl. Mix the contents together well.

2. Add the shrimp and let marinate for 10 minutes. Seafood should not marinate for long periods of time or it will begin to break down.
