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.
