Grilled Mango shrimp

Not only the yellow-orange fruit is pretty attractive, the aromatic smell invites you to pick some of them when you shop. Yes, i am talking about Mango magic! I never tried to cook a ripe mango, like any other fruit, I love to eat them right away and enjoy the natural flavor.
When we were kids, we just take some ripe mango slice as side dish for our favorite Curd rice. It simply delicious way to eat these fruits… But...
Meeta thinks this exotic fruit; can be devoured in delicious way other than scooping out the flesh! Yes, this month “monthly mingle” is just to honor this beauty Queen (mango): Mango Mania!


The delicate shrimp is mixed with the tangy sweet flavor of mango and marinated along with some spices. They re grilled in medium heat for few minutes and served hot with pasta. You have an exotic and elegant dish with a matter of minutes!

Vegetarian: try to substitute with tofu or Paneer!

Grilled Mango Shrimp
Print this
Shrimp: cleaned, deveined and dry with tails on. 15 counts (Jumbo shrimps)
To marinate:
Mango:
one ripped, scoop out the flesh
Green chilis: 3 or 4 depending your heat level (I used 4)
Cumin powder: 1 tsp
Ginger: grated 1 tsp

Salt: a pinch
Grind the marinate ingredients into a smooth paste. Marinate the shrimp with the mango sauce for about 15 minutes (keep covered in fridge).
Grill the shrimp 3 minutes each sides.
Heat in low flame the left over marinated sauce in a saucepan.
Take out the shrimp and garnish with chopped cilantro leaves and drizzle the warm sauce over some pasta!
