Grilled Mango with Shrimp

Grilled Mango with Shrimp

These grilled mango wedges are brushed with maple syrup to create a light, sugary shell. The sweetness offsets the bitter char of smoking wood resulting in grilled fruit with a depth of flavor. Grilled mango can stand alone, but shrimp joins the party to mix things up this time. Serve as an appetizer, turn into tacos, or whatever else you like!

To pit a mango, stand the fruit up on its stem side. Then, use a sharp knife to cut from the top of the mango down to the bottom. Cut slowly and allow the edge of the pit to guide your knife. Repeat on the other side, peel the flesh, and cut the mango into wedges.
