 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.



  1. What time is dinner?

    stupid blogger won't let me leave a comment!

  2. I'll have to try this one Janet - both the easy shrimp marinade and the mango salsa sound delicious, and anything that can be slung on a hot grill outside beats heating up the kitchen in this ongoing torrid weather!

    I hope you got my e-mail a while back!
    We really missed being in your neck of the woods for the 4th - hope you all had a great holiday.

    Hugs - Mary

  3. This sounds wonderful. I make a similar salsa and serve it with grilled scallops.

  4. Sounds delish! Perfect for summer grilling.


  5. Janet, The shrimp and salsa both look delicious. I don't grill much, but I WILL make your salsa recipe. Hmmm.. do you think the shrimp could be "grilled" on a cast iron griddle?
    Thanks for the recipes,

  6. Oooh, Janet! This looks really yummy! Thanks for the recipes, too! Thanks for entering the giveaway! Happy week!...hugs...Debbie

  7. Oh my gosh it's so hot here today! There's a heat advisory. The shrimp looks so good and I love, love, love mango salsa. I could eat that all day with some chips.

  8. Hi Janet! Small world indeed! I grew up in No. Attleboro ~ hence the wedding at St. Marys. Thanks for stopping by my blog, fun to get visitors from 'home'!

  9. That looks soooo good. Maybe even *I* could make it! You think? *grin* I will sure try!

  10. Hi Janet.....thanks for stopping by the blog to see the new a retired realtor what did you think of the price we paid.....can you get such good bargains ups north??.....the poor homeowners who are paying out $34,000.00 in commisions are only walking away with $6,000.
    Oh well their loss is our gain......Plus I will decorate it much much better....and I cook!!!!
    your shrimp looks delish.....we already purchased our new gas grill as the one thing the new kitchen does not have is a grill attached to the Wolf range.....I think I might miss my JennAir......but that would be all I am going to miss....
    Gorgeous home in your header is that your home??
