"Similar to the tandoori oven cooking method, these Indian-spiced shrimp skewers are roasted on high heat on the grill and added to a salad packed with bold sweet and sour flavors. A fresh mango dressing adds a splash of fruitiness and color." - MCCORMICK

  • Mango Dressing:
  • 1 large ripe mango, peeled and seeded

Mango Dressing: Process mango in blender or food processor until pureed (about 1 cup puree). Add lime juice, oil, garam masala, salt and red pepper; process until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Shrimp Tandoori Salad: mix ¼ cup of the mint, lime juice, 2 tablespoons of the oil, honey, garam masala, ginger, salt and red pepper in small bowl. Thread shrimp onto skewers. Brush with mint mixture. Thread mango onto skewers. Brush with remaining 1 tablespoon oil. 

Grill shrimp skewers over high heat 4 to 5 minutes or just until shrimp turn pink, turning once and brushing occasionally with mint mixture. Grill mango skewers 4 to 5 minutes or until lightly charred.

Arrange greens, tomatoes and onion on 6 serving plates. Top with grilled shrimp, mango and remaining 3 tablespoons mint. Drizzle with ½ of the Mango Dressing.

Tip: Store remaining Mango Dressing in refrigerator. Serve over salad greens, grilled or broiled shrimp or chicken, or toss with couscous or quinoa.
