This recipe is highly recommended for a party or reunion in the backyard, for its simplicity and deliciousness. You can serve them like appetizers or for dinner with Mexican rice or cilantro as an accompaniment. I can assure you they'll be everyone's delight! At home I usually prepare them when we get together with friends and they’re always a hit; especially if you serve them as a snack along with mini-mofongos, fried plantains or panapen. MORE + LESS -

  • 1
    In skillet, warm up the oil at medium heat. Add the shallots and garlic immediately and mix well for a few seconds; let crystallize, without burning them.
  • 2
    Add mango; cook until they become soft and smooth. Add the chipotle pepper, ginger and mango juice. Let it thicken for about 35 minutes, stirring occasionally to keep it from burning.
  • 3
    Remove from the heat, add the lemon juice and let cool it at room temperature, then store in the fridge until you are ready to use.
  • 4
    Once sauce is ready, skewer the shrimp with the stick and season them with salt and pepper. Cook them in a grill or griddle for approximately 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Don't overcook them so they don't turn hard or chewy.
  • 5
    Serve right after cooking with the mango sauce.

Expert Tips

  • I recommend you use large or medium shrimp so you can insert them well on the sticks without them falling off.
  • Use the chipotle pepper to your liking, or you can substitute with sweet peppers or yellow peppers if you don't like spicy food.
