It’s Monday, and we all deserve a little yummy goodness to brighten up our day. This is by far my favorite recipe we’ve shared this summer, and of course it includes shrimp, mango, lime, and my pal the BBQ. There is something about the flavor of cooking shrimp on the grill, and add the mango and lime marinade, this is for sure to become a summer favorite. If this doesn’t get you excited, well then maybe the fact that this is going to be a two part post will. Yup, you heard that right! On Wednesday we have the most delicious and perfect sidekick to this superhero main dish. And yes, I totally compared shrimp kabobs to a superhero; don’t mind me totally geeking out right now. Anyways, enough about that. The infamous side dish is a quinoa Mexican salad that is my new go to way to get my quinoa fix. So stay tuned, it’s going to be another delicious week here at Blooming Bites!
Now, Have you ever looked at a recipe and thought to yourself this is too good to be true, because I have a feeling this is going to be one of those moments. All you do is combine ingredients for the marinade and add the shrimp. Let sit for at least 30 minutes, but the longer the better. Build your skewers alternating the mango and shrimp, and get your grill on. Too good to be true just became real and I LOVE IT! As for the dip, it’s pretty much the same process. BOOM BAM DONE!
So, keep this recipe in your recipe box this summer, it’s sure to be a crowd favorite at your next BBQ with little effort. Food is important yes, but the key to a successful summer BBQ is being able to have time to spend with your friends and family. And don’t forget, come back Wednesday for that mexican quinoa salad, you won’t be disappointed! Happy cooking everyone!
