Recipe Details

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 finished with a fresh mango dressing.

This recipe was developed for the Flavor Forecast: Looking Back to Look Forward.
