grilled shrimp with mango salsa

After rock climbing yesterday with my two brothers, my arms are incapable of doing anything productive today…they feel like lead. So because I can barely use my arms today, I gave up on doing anything productive, instead looking through recipes outside in the sun.

I’ve been hoarding Oprah recipes for the past 5+ years in a folder on my computer, and when cleaning them out this weekend I came across the most amazing shrimp recipe! I’ve had this recipe saved since 2006 – so worth the extra space on my computer!

Grilled Shrimp with Mango Salsa

Adapted from

For the salsa:
2 large mangoes, peeled and chopped into salsa-size pieces
1/4 cup of red onion, minced
1/4 cup of cilantro leaves, chopped
1 teaspoon of ginger, minced
3 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of pepper

For the shrimp:
1 1/2 pounds of large shrimp (I used pre-cooked tiger shrimp)
4 tablespoons of soy sauce
4 tablespoons of orange juice
2 tablespoons of olive oil

1. For the salsa, mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Refrigerate until serving.

2. For the shrimp, place shrimp on a tray and cover with 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and 2 tablespoons of orange juice. Let marinate for about 10 minutes.

3. Place marinated shrimp in the saucepan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add 2 more tablespoons of orange juice and soy sauce. Cook for about 8 minutes, flipping when necessary.

4. Serve with mango salsa! Enjoy!

    I was lucky enough to eat these yummy shrimp for lunch and they were delish! I can’t believe how easy they were to make considering how great they tasted! Please make more recipes like this for us soon. 🙂

    Hi Star! So nice of you to stop by my blog and comment. That was really nice what you said. I love thick hearty soups and with the addition of beans, it really fills you up.

    Funny that we’re experiencing different seasons. All my favourite overseas blogs are posting summer recipes and here downunder, it’s all thick soups, stews, pies and lots of baking. I’ll have to save them for the warmer months!

    Nice to meet you!

      This recipe has just the right amount of spice! If you want more, I’d recommend adding a little bit of red pepper flakes once they’re done grilling. Thanks so much for visiting!!! I love your site!

    I am SUCH a fan of fruit as an integral part of an entree. This looks absolutely delicious! Have you tried the marinated salmon recipe with mango kiwi relish from Cooking Light? It’s to die for good!
