Grilled Shrimp with Mango Salsa

It’s been a long winter!! Spring is finally starting to win out and the weather is getting better. It’s time to get those grills ready and fire them up!

The fresh mango salsa is refreshing and spicy and totally enhances the sweetness of the shrimp. This delicious recipe is easy and can be a main dish or an appetizer.

Sounding good? Well let’s get grilling!

Start with the Mango Salsa:

Peel the mango and cut it carefully away from the seed. I like to take the seed over to the sink after I’ve cut all I can off of it, and suck up all the delicious bits of mango that still cling to it. Waste not!

After prepping all the ingredients, put them together in a medium bowl and gently mix together.

Cover and refrigerate until ready to use – but no longer than about 24 hours.

For the shrimp –

Place each shrimp carefully onto a skewer.

Squeeze the lime juice evenly over each piece. Generously sprinkle lemon pepper and sea salt on both sides.

Heat the grill to medium high and cook the shrimp over the direct heat, about 3 minutes on each side. Be careful not to over cook – it will get rubbery.

Serve the grilled shrimp with the mango salsa, garnished with some chive stems and a wedge of lime. Can be served hot or cold. Delicious!
