Happy Cinco De Mayo - May 05, 2016
Today is Cinco De Mayo, a day to celebrate the Mexican Army holding off French Troops in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. In celebrating, it was only fitting to find a delicious recipe for dinner tonight!
Mango Chipotle Shrimp
- ¾ cup KC Masterpiece Original Sauce
- 1 teaspoon chipotle sauce
- 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
- ½ cup mango chunks, frozen, thawed
- 2 lbs. shrimp, peeled, deveined
In a food processor or with a small bowl and form; take the thawed mango chunks and turn them into a puree texture. Once the puree texture has been achieved, add the barbecue sauce, chipotle sauce, and garlic. Mix all ingredients until the mixture is consistent all the way through.
Place the wood skewers into water and allow them to soak for about 30 minutes. This will prevent them from burning. While these are soaking, separate the barbecue mango sauce into two separate containers. One of these will be used for marinating the shrimp and the other will be used for serving.
Place the shrimp into the barbecue mango sauce for 20 to 30 minutes. Once shrimp has marinated, skewer the shrimp and grill on medium heat. The shrimp skewers should take about 3 minutes per side. Once you flip the shrimp, brush with barbecue mixture.
Once shrimp has been cooked, remove from the grill and serve with additional sauce.
