Grilled Shrimp with Mango and Chiles

I know for most of you, summer may feel like something of a dream right now, but for us, we are still in full summer mode.  It's still in the 100's and it still feels like summer all around!  So, if you are in the same position I am and still need to get out and grill like it's summer, or if you are looking for one last fling before fall truly starts, this is a meal for you!  It's light, it's flavorful, and it just looks like summer on your plate!

It's going up to 55 here today, and it's raining ... Fall is well-established. So to find something as bright, flavorful, and gorgeous as this shrimp dish??? What a fabulous start to my morning!

What size were your shrimp, 21-25? 48 shrimp sounds like a lot. Did you have company? Can I have the leftovers?

StephenC said...

Oh, and by the way, the picture makes your dish look like a pro chef made it.

Mary said...

This looks divine! I'm pinning this to try soon though. I like the idea of mango, chile and shrimp. Thanks!

I didn't know that you can combine sea food with mango. It doesn't sound like a good mix but at least I hope that It can taste good.
