Guava Mango Shrimp Kabobs - #HotSummerEats

I received complimentary product from Intensity Academy Gourmet Sauces and Pirate Jonny's  to help me create my recipe for #HotSummerEats. All experiences and opinions are my own and were not influenced by the products I received.

Today's #HotSummerEats recipe is a simple, but delicious, favorite of mine! I just love seafood. Since moving back to the states I just don't have as many chances to enjoy fresh seafood, but am always looking for a quick recipe that lets me get my fix.

When my box of Intensity Academy Gourmet Sauces arrived, one look at Pirate Jonny's Guava Girl Gourmet Cooking and Grilling Sauce and I immediately went to my happy place... shrimp!

I saw guava in the name and I started thinking about mangoes and shrimp. Seemed perfect to throw some shrimp on the barbecue for this event. Right?

So I shelled and de-veined my shrimp, then let it hang out for a while in the amazing Guava Girl sauce. This stuff is sweet and very flavorful.

I left my mangos in large chunks and added some colorful red and orange bell peppers to my skewers. Not only were the shrimp marinated in the sauce, but towards the end of the cooking time, I brushed them with just a little more.

Believe me, once you taste this sauce, you will understand why I went heavy handed with the flavors.

Guava Mango Shrimp Kabobs

You Will Need:

  • 1 lb. large shrimp, shells removed and de-veined
  • Pirate Johnny's Guava Girl Sauce, enough to cover the shrimp + more for grilling
  • 2 large mangoes, cut into chunks
  • 3 large bell peppers, cut into cubes
  • salt and pepper to taste
Start by marinating the shrimp in Pirate Johnny's Guava Girl sauce. Generously cover the shrimp and refrigerate for at least an hour or overnight in the fridge.

Before cooking, soak your skewers in water. They should be completely immersed for 10 to 30 minutes.

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.

Assemble the skewers alternating shrimp, mango chunks and bell pepper cubes as you like. Season with salt and pepper. Place them on the grill and cook about 3 minutes per side or until the shrimp become pink. Brush on a little more Pirate Johnny's Guava Girl sauce after turning the shrimp. 

Serve immediately and enjoy!
