grilled shrimp with mango-barbecue glaze

i’m such a huge fan of delicious foods that are super easy to make (who isn’t?).  take this recipe, for example.  it pretty much took us (bob and i) about ten to fifteen minutes to make.  here’s our version of it:

mango bbq glaze:

  • two tablespoons of red wine vinegar
  • two tablespoons of sugar
  • half a cup of mango-peach jam
  • two tablespoons of barbecue sauce
  • salt and pepper, to taste

take the shrimp skewers and lightly glaze them with olive oil, salt and pepper before grilling.   once grilled, cover them in the mango bbq sauce.  

we also tried the shrimp on a tortilla chip with guacamole, which was inspired by an appetizer (aka thai chili-seared wild shrimp) that we are absolutely in love with at a restaurant called josie’s.  let me tell you…these things are to die for.  our version wasn’t half bad, either.  i’ll take this as a success.
