Shrimp Skewers With Mango Marinade Recipe

Skewered Shrimp With Homemade Mango Marinade

This recipe for mango shrimp skewers was shared by FitSugar reader lauren in our Healthy Recipe community group.

Even during the Winter, I like to occasionally enjoy a touch of the tropical flavor with pineapples, papaya, and mangoes. I had a bunch of shrimp on hand, and after peeling and deveining them, I took a peek in my fridge for a marinade; unfortunately I was out of all of my favorites. With only three ingredients, a mango, jalapeno and cumin powder, I was able to create a simply delicious marinade. Since the rain let up, I had my husband grill them up on the barbecue, but these could easily be prepared in a pan as well. I served it with a side of brown rice and side salad. Definitely a fast and easy dinner with a ton of fresh flavor.
