Roasted Mango Chipotle Grilled Shrimp Skewers

I’m fortunate that I can grill just about year round. But for others, I know that the snow has melted and the weather has finally warmed up making it perfect weather for grilling! I use to be intimidated by the grill; however, last year, I embraced it and haven’t turned back since! I LOVE grilling, and since I live in Florida and its already in the 90’s I grill almost every night during the summer months in an effort to keep our home as cool as possible.

I teamed up with World Market to create a bbq & grilling recipe for Father’s Day! My dad (like many others out there) love all things spicy. So when I found Bronco Bob’s Roasted Mango Chipotle Sauce while strolling the aisles of World Market I instantly knew I wanted to make something with this sweet and spicy sauce! That’s when it hit me. Why not use the World Grill Black Cherry Planks to smoke and grill Roasted Mango Chipotle Grilled Shrimp Skewers?!?!?

The black cherry planks require a little prep work. You have to soak them for at least 30 minutes. So I decided to put the planks in zip top bags and bring them to work with me. Right before I left the office I filled them with water, carried them down to my car, and drove home. My drive home from the office typically takes anywhere from 25-30 minutes so I figured why not multi-task? Some may think this is crazy–I call this genius! Plus this ensured that I would have dinner on the table in no time! As soon as I got home I soaked my bamboo skewers in water (they need to soak for at least 15 minutes to ensure they don’t burn when placed on the grill).  I also cleaned, peeled, and deveined the shrimp, gave them a good rinse and then patted them dry and slathered them with the roasted mango chipotle sauce. Gave the shrimp a good mix, sealed the top of the bowl with plastic wrap, placed it in the fridge and then got to work on the grain and pasta medley side dish I wanted to make.

After my medley was put together, I went outside to get the grill ready. It’s always good to pre-heat your grill just like you would an oven! After its been heated for about 5 minutes I clean it with a grill brush. I also try to clean the grill after I’ve cooked dinner as well. Double cleaning but this will help prolong the life of your grill grates and keep pesky critters away! (p.s., my grill was a hand-me-down and is over 7 years old. It doesn’t look as beautiful as it once did–we use it often. Also, the outdoor elements and stainless steel don’t do well together hence the current look and state of my grill).

I removed my skewers from the water, grabbed my marinated shrimp from the refrigerator, and got an old baking sheet out from underneath my oven. I began to skewer 4 shrimp per skewer. Remember, I used jumbo shrimp. You don’t have to do the same. It just so happened that wild jumbo Florida shrimp were on sale that week and I took advantage of it! I placed the cherry planks on the grill, followed by 2 skewers on each plank. I cooked the skewers for 10 minutes and then finished them off on the grill grates for a minute on each side (just to get the grill marks). You can taste the light smokiness of the cherry planks throughout the shrimp.

We paired our dinner with a bottle of Ommegang Hennepin Saison Beer. As most of you know, my husband is big into craft beer and when I asked him to pair a beer with our meal he knew this would pair well with the sweet and spicy smoked grilled shrimp skewers! Both of our dad’s happen to enjoy craft beer and a Saison beer is perfect for summer cook outs!

Whether you’re entertaining for Memorial Day weekend or want to cook your dad a special meal these Roasted Mango Chipotle Grilled Shrimp Skewers will be a big hit! Making a dinner for just you and dad is a great way to celebrate and show him how much you love him! I know my dad would much rather a home cooked meal than swanky gifts. Although, World Market has plenty of great items for Father’s day gifts, too! Note to self, buy dad an extra bottle of beer so he can enjoy at a later date!

    I’m in the market for a new grill this summer… When I upgrade from my tiny camping grill I will be sure to make these…Holy yum!

      Awe lol… I am in the market for a new grill, too. I would love to upgrade from my 3-burner to a 4-burner grill! You could still make these on your camper grill or better yet your Griddler!
