To balance out the heat (it’s mild, although you can make it spicier or leave milder to your taste) I served this over a quick slaw with sweet mango, red cabbage and lime juice.

  1. We love, love, loved the slaw! Very colorful. Beautiful presentation. We were still hungry after a single portion, so I would add rice, beans, or something else on the side. The shrimp were good. I think better would be scallops or a white fish. But delish.. I may do the slaw with a fire shrimp recipe on top. Or, add a minced habanero pepper to the whole thing. We’ll definitely keep this in our rotation.

  2. It was really delicious! It felt a bit fancy and summery, like an interesting dish we might get on vacation at a beach resort. We paired it with frozen egg-rolls.  Quite beautiful on the plate. Hubby and I each ate 2 servings.

    Next time, I will make th me cabbage slaw a littler earlier in the day and refrigerate so I can clean-up my little chilling mess, then do the shrimp just when we are ready to eat. Done this way it would be a great light meal for guests.

  3. Put this on some corn tortilla and topped with avocado – SO GOOD and so satisfying

  4. This was fantastic! So fresh tasting and really easy.  We had it with a side of black beans.  I love that it would taste good hot or cold leftover for lunch.  It was surprisingly filling too.  

  5. I made this for dinner this evening with some brown rice and it was excellent – really fresh and tasty!

  6. Refreshing and delicious! I love recipes like this that are flavorful but don’t require a laundry list of ingredients and an hour of prep work. The mango slaw is a revelation on its own – I would pair it with any summery main but the shrimp definitely works well. Thank you!!

  7. As I had leftover red cabbage, this was a great use for it. I love shrimp in most any form so that also made it a good choice. A nice light summer dinner was had with this recipe.

  8. Oooo, SO good! Hubby loves it too. This will be a go to during the hot summer months for sure!

  9. this recipe needs more 5 star comments, it’s that good!  Loved it

  11. Do you think I could make this with cod fish instead of shrimp? It looks yummy, but I don’t have shrimp in the house.  Thanks!

  14. Made this twice already and again tonight. Never change a thing but I’m serving with corn tortillas tonight so we can change it up a bit and make it tacos!

  15. Mmmm!!! This was absolutely delicious, so fresh tasting and flavorful.  I would LOVE to see more variations of recipes like this.  Thank you!!

  16. Just made this, replaced the mango with pineapple as I had one that needed using, served it along with brown rice and plantain and it was utterly delicious! Another SkinnyTaste home run 😉

  17. Make this in 10 minutes so delicious !!!

  20. Delish! The presentation was fabulous, and we particularly enjoyed the slaw. I wasn’t sure how to julienne the mango so I you tubed it. LOL I will probably make a paste from the spices next time. Just because I like to mix things up sometimes. Thanks for another winner!
