This Grilled Florida Shrimp with Mango and Sweet Chili Sauce recipe from our friends at Fresh From Florida is the summer skewer recipe you’ve been searching for.

  • Soak the bamboo skewers in water for at least one hour (this reduces the chance of the skewers burning).
  • Combine the sweet chili sauce, lime juice, ginger, and mint in a small bowl.
  • Slice the scallions and set aside.
  • On a clean surface, place a mango cube in between the tail and top of a shrimp.
  • Insert the bamboo skewer through the shrimp and mango.
  • Repeat the skewering process until all shrimp are skewered, and store in the refrigerator until ready to grill.
  • Preheat a charcoal grill (or indoor grill pan) and cook the shrimp and mango skewers.
  • When the shrimp is close to being cooked through, glaze with the sweet chili sauce.
  • Sprinkle with the sliced scallions and serve.
