This is an excellent recipe. Nectar is filled with sugar, as a reviewer noted and pureed mango sounds like a great substitute. I would think peaches would work well also.My tip for this recipe: Complete all steps through breading the shrimp and preparing the sauce. Then refrigerate the breaded shrimp covered with plastic wrap. Another benefit, the breading sets well. Can be prepared in the morning. Then cook the shrimp. They also freeze well breaded. Cook while still frozen about 3 minutes each side or until golden.
So flavorful! Definitely will make again. Instead of grilling, I popped the shrimp in the oven under the broiler for a few minutes. They were great! The rice was easy. I tried to cut the sauce in half and had some trouble with it but ended up with a great, flavorful sauce that wasn't overpowering. Served with fresh sliced avocado and salad. Yum!
HOLY MOLY! I only made the marinade from this recipe and it was beyond expectations. Perfect flavor, perfect amount of heat, and enhanced the shrimps flavor. I am definitely going to put this into recipe rotation, next time I will make the entire meal.
Yum Yum and more Yum! I only made the marinated, grilled shrimp, as I was in a rush on this Wednesday work night, but they were soooo flavorful; I can only imagine how much better they will be when I make them with the rice and sauce! YUUUM!
This is probably the best shrimp receipe I've ever tried. Made it for company dinner and was enjoyed by all. Guests were from Charleston, SC and know great shrimp. They loved it. Will continue to make this despite the multiple steps being well worth the effort.
