Island Shrimp

We are calling this Island Shrimp because of the sauce we are making

The combination of mangos, jalapenos, cilantro and lime just makes me think of a turquoise ocean, a drink with an umbrella and some relaxation

So let’s get started

You will need 2 pounds of peeled and deveined shrimp

You will also need to soak some wood skewers in water prior to grilling (this keeps them from burning up)

Next up are a few simple seasonings

1 teaspoon each of kosher salt, ground black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and 1 tablespoon of paprika

Add all this into the shrimp and stir to combine

Now lets work on that Island flavor we have been talking about

We will need 2 ripe mangos, 1 jalapeno pepper, 1 garlic clove, the juice and zest of 1 lime, 2 tables spoons of honey and 1 tablespoon of fresh cilantro

Lets peel and chop the mango, zest and juice the lime and remove the seeds and ribs from the jalapeno

We are then going to place all the ingredients into a food processor and blend to incorporate

Little bits of chunks are perfectly fine, we want flavor and texture

Let’s add about 3-4 tablespoons of this sauce to the raw shrimp and stir to combine

We will reserve the rest for when the shrimp are cooked as a glaze or dipping sauce

Preheat your grill to around 400 F

We are going to cook these quickly over direct heat

Place your shrimp on the skewers (about 6 per skewer, with a couple extra here and there)

Place on your grill, but don’t walk away

These only need about 2 1/2 minutes on the first side

Flip and cook about 2 minutes more, or until firm and opaque in color

Remove and brush with the leftover sauce

This makes me want to relax on an Island somewhere and enjoy life

How about you?
