Hi again! Guess what? It’s springtime! Finally! Summer is right around the corner, which means it’s time to break out your grill and get barbecuing! I’m super lucky that I get to live in Southern California where the weather is moderate all year long. We barbecue year round!
My husband is usually our grill master. I get sort of nervous grilling meats because I’m never sure when they’re done cooking. I’m always afraid of overcooking and undercooking. But when it comes to shrimp, that’s my specialty. I always know when it’s done cooking because it turns from gray to pink – easy peasy!
My boys like shrimp, but only if it’s simply made. Not fried or covered in seasonings, etc. That’s one of the reasons why these grilled shrimp skewers are so awesome.
Another reason is because simply put, skewers are cool. Everyone likes grilled meat on skewers! Also, this shrimp is marinated in a deliciously simple garlic oil marinade. It’s quick to make and adds so much flavor to the shrimp. And then there’s the mango salsa, which is easy to whip up and can be served on the top or on the side of the shrimp.
These skewers are perfect for entertaining, too. They’re easy, healthy and absolutely delicious. You will love to welcome spring and summer by making a batch up soon! And if you want to try another easy shrimp dish, try this favorite of ours: Orange-Thyme Grilled Shrimp.
