 It's been hot here recently and I have had a lot going on.  This quick and delicious meal has been on my "go to" list lately.  Really, I could eat a pound of shrimp and several mangoes worth of salsa prepared this way.

OK, I stole the picture because I can never remember to take a picture of my food before I devour it, plus it is really hard to photograph food. Here is what I do:

I lb raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4 olive ( or other ) oil
2 T. Worcestershire sauce
juice of one lemon
1 large clove garlic, minced
sprinkle of red chile flakes

Combine all the above in a zip lock bag.  Marinate in the fridge for no longer than 45 minutes ( unless you want shrimp ceviche, but that's a whole other story !)

Thread onto metal skewers ( or soaked wooden ones)  and grill over a medium hot flame for about 2-3 minutes per side.

Another purloined photo, but honestly my salsa looked just like this.

2 mangoes, diced
1 small jalapeno, ribs and seeds removed, finely chopped. 
1/8- 1/4 cup diced red onion
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
juice of one lime

Combine and refrigerate for flavors to meld and soften. This is so delicious I can just eat it out of the bowl and I DID ;)

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer.
