These fresh-flavored mango shrimp skewers are a great option for entertaining.

How to Make It

Prepare grill to medium-high heat. Sprinkle shrimp evenly with salt and black pepper. Thread shrimp, bell pepper pieces, mango cubes, and onion pieces alternately onto each of 8 (12-inch) skewers. Place skewers on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 2 minutes on each side or until shrimp are done. Squeeze juice from lime wedges over kebabs.

These were nice and light for a weeknight meal on a hot day. I had leftover veggies and shrimp that didn't on the skewers, and they made a great stir fry for lunch the next day!

These were great! Was surprised how just the salt and pepper seasoning worked for the whole recipe just fine - really let the flavor of the shrimp shine after the hit of lime. The mango and red onion were a nice juxtaposition! Had larger/jumbo shrimp so they needed about 3-4 min. a side rather than just the 2. Used as main course over quinoa/veggie mix. Would probably stick with a rice next time as the quinoa was a little earthy for the bright flavors in the kebabs. Not much of a "recipe" per se, but will definitely make again and keep the basic ideas in mind (i.e. mango/lime).

My husband loved it. However, I cooked the skewers for about 6 minutes (instead of the indicated 4) and the shrimp were still quite undercooked. I was also worried they would be dry so after i salted and peppered the shrimp and put everything together, i drizzled olive oil on top. I love the way the mango and onion taste together. I served this over brown rice with grilled squash and zucchini. I would also put some cherry tomatoes on the skewers in the future simply because my husband likes these.
