  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 6 wooden skewers soaked in water for 15 minutes

SALSA:

Instructions

  • Heat olive oil in medium saucepan over low heat. Add sliced garlic and cook until soft. Add 1 Tbsp. lime juice, pepper and salt. Let cool.
  • Thread shrimp onto soaked skewers and place in a 9×13 pan (or something similar). Pour garlic oil marinade over shrimp. Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for 2-6 hours.
  • Meanwhile, prepare mango salsa: mix green onions, mangoes, jalapeños, cilantro and remaining 1 Tbsp. lime juice. Taste and add salt and pepper if needed. Refrigerate until ready to use.
