Firecracker Shrimp

Looking for a spicy appetizer or addition to a dinner plate? I saw this on The Pioneer Woman's website awhile back. I can't exactly remember what I paired it with, but it was an addition to something else I was cooking. I might have made some fish and thrown these on the plate as well. All I remember is that they were good! I love shrimp. I mean really love it. I love to find new ways to prepare it, and my husband loves grilled shrimp, so this satisfied both of our desires! I will warn you, it is a tad spicy, so make sure you have something cool to drink while you're popping these in your mouth!

1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined.
2 tablespoons hot chili sauce (I used Sriracha)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
4 to 5 cloves garlic, pressed

Combine all ingredients in a large Ziploc bag, then add shrimp and marinate for 20 minutes to 2 hours. Skewer shrimp and grill until opaque and brown, with black bits.
