Shrimps & Mango Bites

Sweet shrimps and mango dressed in tangy lemon juice and zest….such a perfect combination! Add to them crunchy spring onions and for me that’s it! Wrapped in soft tortillas or crunchy taco shells, these are the perfect appetizer, if you try them, let me know!

Recipe is for 6-8 people


Shrimp marinade:

  • 12 shrimps, shell removed and deveined

  • Salt and pepper to taste

To Assemble:

  • Mini Tortillas (If you dont find mini tortillas cut big ones using a round cookie cutter or a glass works just fine)


For the shrimps:

  • In a bowl add the shrimps and all other ingredients and let marinade for at least 1 hour
  • Heat a griddle pan till smoking hot and grill your shrimps for 2 minutes/side.
  • Transfer to a plate and drizzle the marinade juices on top. Toss and set aside.
