During the summer I want meals to be quick and easy to prepare, but also refreshing and filling. These grilled shrimp skewers are seasoned with cumin, paprika and onion powder to give them a nice flavor. Then they're grilled and topped with a sauce made with mango pulp, onion, hot pepper, garlic, cilantro and butter.
Shrimp and mango together are one of those perfect matches. This mango sauce is a great accompaniment to any type of seafood. It works especially well with baked salmon and grilled tilapia as well. You can prepare these shrimp skewers as part of a full meal or make them smaller and serve them as appetizers with the sauce.
I have never thought or tasted shrimp with mango combo! Nice and I wanna try 🙂
I like the crushed red pepper in the mango sauce: a little bit of heat in all that sweet! The grilled shrimp look delicious and the sauce would go with so many others things, too. It sounds very versatile. 😎
