A Grilled Shrimp Appetizer Recipe
This Grilled Shrimp Cocktail with Mango BBQ sauce has become one of our most favorite appetizer and dinner recipes! We like to serve it over rice and with a salad and/or vegetables for dinner, or just as is for appetizers!
Grilling the shrimp brings our all the delicious, fresh seafood flavors in this dish so we especially like making this shrimp cocktail during the grilling season. But if the weather isn’t right for grilling you can use a grill pan or oven roast the shrimp and still make this quick mango BBQ sauce.
This shrimp cocktail is served warm, but cold would be OK too if you want to do it ahead of time…It’s all about the sauce here. Like this Asian Shrimp Cocktail – and it couldn’t be easier to make.
How To Make Grilled Shrimp Cocktail with Mango BBQ sauce
Start with your favorite BBQ sauce and a ripe mango – add them to a blender until smooth and you’re finished. We’re all about short cuts here when we can take them and sometimes adding a fresh ingredient to a store bought product really makes the difference!
There’s so many good bottled sauces right in your grocery store these days you should totally take advantage of them. No need to make things completely from scratch ALL the time.
You can serve these shrimp grilled with the sauce on the side or what I like to do is grill them, toss them in a couple tablespoons of the sauce and serve them with extra sauce on the side too.
This shrimp is also awesome for dinner with rice or fries on the side, our boys both loved it for dinner and asked for seconds. That’s when you know something’s really good – when the kids want more!
