Grilled Shrimp Mango Salad

This dinner is all about the generosity of friends. We received this package of frozen side striped shrimp a while ago from our alaskan friends. If you have been following this blog you know…we had NO idea how to cook it. We didn’t know how to prepare it either. It sounded pretty scary. Popping off heads and deveining…intimidating indeed! So it lounged around in our freezer until this week.

We do have seafood lovers in this crowd. Our son, Evan, is all about shrimp. And his birthday is coming up, and my husband’s birthday is today! So…time to get brave and step up! Well, I honestly tried VERY hard to get Kayti and Brian to make this meal. In the end, we collaborated on it. Kayti did the shrimp prep, sweet girl that she is. And she found it not too bad; the shrimp came deveined and already “popped”, so to speak. Lucky us!Grilled Shrimp Mango Salad

I invented this barbecue marinade with some help from Sweet Baby Ray’s Sweet and Spicy Barbecue sauce. I added in some extras with it and the result was that we ALL Loved the flavor of this grilled shrimp. And when I like shrimp…that is just about a miracle!

Grilled and peeled, this shrimp is tasty with the barbecue sauce as a dip

The mango salad came together out of what I had on hand. Fortunately I found quite a bit of produce at hand that worked beautifully in this meal. Go ahead and play a bit with your salad additions. The major ingredients are the mangos, avocado, and pineapple. I added in two of our large cucumbers from the greenhouse, and some Roma tomatoes for color. The frozen corn was great in this as well!

Grilled Shrimp Mango Salad Recipe:

This is a slightly sweet salad. Adding the organic white rice cooked in coconut milk put another level of completeness to this meal. You could eliminate the rice if you’re having a light lunch and make this meal lower in carbs as well!

We did learn one thing you need to know, if you’re a shrimp newbie like me. PEEL the shrimp BEFORE you grill it for easy eating. We looked it up and Side Striped Shrimp does not require peeling before hand. But the shell did adhere to the meat and make it a bit of messy work to eat our lovely grilled shrimp. Live and learn!

Side Striped Shrimp can be grilled in their shells, as we did. But for easy shelling take the shells off BEFORE you grill!
