Blackened Mango Shrimp on a Stick.

I've decided that I'm just going to keep on featuring Shrimp for my Fish Friday Foodies offerings.

I'd had a great idea for using Tuna, but just didn't make it into the fish store for some.

I usually have shrimp in my freezer anyway and really, I love shrimp so...

 Ta Da!!!!

Shrimp on a stick
Blackened  Mango Shrimp on a Stick.    6-8 shrimp per serving (depending on size)

1 lb. peeled uncooked shrimp
1 jar Mango Chutney  ( I love Crosse & Blackwells Major Grey's Chutney)
1 tsp. Blackened Seasoning ( I used some of my Healthy Solutions Cajun Seafood Seasoning)
1 tsp. EVOO or Avocado Oil
 Skewers
Prepare the shrimp by threading it onto a skewer, then sprinkle with the Cajun Seafood Seasoning.
Heat a pan with some EVOO or Avocado Oil (which I've just discovered is great for sauteeing, high smoke point is always a good thing), until almost smoking.  
Set the shrimp into the pan, you want to 'blacken' the shrimp with the seasoning.
  Saute' on one side for a couple of minutes, then turn over and cook the other side, just another minute or so.   I like my shrimp to 'pop' when I bite into them, so be careful you don't over cook.
Serve with some Yaki Soba Noodles and snow peas and carrots or some other stir fried veggies.    And use some of the Major Grey's Chutney for a dipping sauce for the shrimp.  It's a fun, unique combination that tastes great.  
I think this would also work well on the grill, or under the broiler but since my oven went on strike and said NO!! to my using it anymore,  and I don't have a grill, I used a little fry pan instead.

And for some reason I've been on a blackened seasoning kick lately and have been pairing it up with all kinds of fun dips.  And this one, I thought was a winner. 
I know Chutney and Blackened seasoning?  But it works, it really works together.

In the interests of full disclosure, the Healthy Solutions Cajun Seafood Seasoning was given to me to help develop recipes.  Thank you Healthy Solutions Spice Blends.  I've used a lot of their seasoning mixtures and haven't found a bad one yet.  No sugar, no salt, no MSG.  I love this stuff.

Now go check out all the other Seafood on a Stick.  Sue of A Palatable Pastime  is our hostess this month and it was her idea to put our seafood on a stick.    Sorry Sue, but I used some bamboo skewers, no sticks unless you count the toothpicks?  . 

Next month we've got to stuff a whole fish, giggle, and it won't be shrimp, or maybe it will, who knows.

    1. Thanks Wendy, I will. And since I live on the coast and shrimp is readily available and affordable, I will. Cook with it that is.

  4. Look at you with your "Non-Redneck Chutney!" This recipe sounds delicious! I'll have to keep a lookout for some great mango chutney…or else figure out a way to make my own!

    1. Imagine my surprise when I found out our local grocery store carries my favorite chutney. I will have to try your 'redneck chutney' though, cause I live on the Redneck Riviera, lol, and it would be perfect to make and serve here.
