Lime and Cilantro Shrimp & Mango Skewers

Lime and Cilantro Shrimp & Mango Skewers

Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 8 minutes

Surprise your guests at your next BBQ by serving shrimp alongside the usual fare. Grilling shrimp is as simple, if not simpler than grilling hotdogs and burgers and it's much healthier. The lime and cilantro marinade is super easy but takes this dish to a new level.
