Grilled Shrimp Mango Salad

Looking for a healthy grilled meal? Try this shrimp mango salad. It’s a light and refreshing salad that’s quick to prepare and easy to grill.

With fast food restaurants around every corner, it can be hard to eat healthy. You almost have to find a healthy recipe that is just as quick to prepare and cook as it is to go through the drive through line.

This shrimp mango salad is just that. It is light and refreshing – perfect for summer gatherings or quiet dinners with the family.

Tip: When grilling the shrimp and mango, use the SABER® stainless steel dual skewers. These skewers help keep smaller food items from rotating and falling off while you’re grilling. And, keeping with ease, these skewers are dishwasher safe, so when you’re cleaning up, all you have to do is put them in the dishwasher.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 pound medium raw shrimp, peeled
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • Juice from 1 lime (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 2 ripe mangoes, peeled, pitted and sliced
  • 2 avocadoes, sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 3 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon jalapeno, minced
  • Spring mix lettuce

Directions

  • Preheat grill to high.
  • Toss shrimp, mango and avocado in sesame oil, lime juice and a pinch of salt.
  • Grill shrimp on both sides until pink and opaque, about two minutes per side. Grill mango and avocado on both sides to add sear marks.
  • Cut mango and avocado into chunks and in a medium bowl, toss with cherry tomatoes, rice vinegar, shallot, mint and jalapeno.
  • Top the lettuce with the shrimp, mango, avocado and tomatoes. Eat as is or add salad dressing of your choosing.

Tip: For even more flavor, use grilled Romaine lettuce instead of a mix lettuce. Cut Romaine hearts in half lengthwise. Rub with olive oil and a little salt and pepper (and/or other seasonings to your preference). Place the lettuce on the hot grates. Grill for a few minutes to caramelize and slightly wilt the lettuce. Pull the lettuce off the grates and chop into chunks.
