Mango shrimp salad!

For some reason in the summertime the only thing that I want to eat is hamburgers, salads and ice cream! This is definitely one of my favorite recipes in regards to salads. I always love to have a bag of shrimp in my freezer, and this is a great recipe to do when nothing else in the fridge is appealing and you feel like eating something light!

You can cook your shrimp in a pan but the flavour that you’ll get from the BBQ is well worth it! I usually thaw my shrimp in some cold water (the frozen shrimp being in a plastic bag) but my hubby takes the lazy route and directly puts them on the BBQ, and honestly, it tastes great!


10/15 Tiger shrimp (fresh or frozen)

1 green onion

1 ripe mango (diced)

1/2 red Bell pepper (diced)

1/3 cup of fresh coriander


2 tablespoons of rice vinegar

1/3 cup olive oil

1 tablespoon of lime juice (or lemon)

1 tablespoon of Cayenne pepper (optional)

salt and pepper


1.Cook the peeled shrimp on the BBQ until they are pink (about two minutes) Reserve.

2. Mix all the dressing ingredients together.

3.Wash thoroughly the coriander and chop it up. Dice the mango, the green onion and the Bell pepper.

4. Mix all the ingredients together.

*For the dressing, you can play with the ingredients, add more oil, less lemon etc…

I like to serve my mango shrimp salad in Martini glasses, for some reason, it always taste better! 🙂
