Grilled shrimp, mango and avocado salad


  • 8 large shrimps with head, shell and veins removed
  • 1 large, ripe mango
  • 1 large, ripe avocado
  • 4 thick handfuls of tender salad leaves
  • For the marinade:
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • ½ hot pepper, shredded
  • 1 lime, juice and zest
  • 1 clove of garlic, slightly torn
  • Salt and pepper grains

For the dressing:

  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup tomato juice

  • ½ -1 red hot chili pepper, shredded
  • Salt and pepper


Step 1:

Mix the marinade materials in a bowl and add the shrimps. Put them in the refrigerator to marinade for at least 3 hours, or better for 1 night. To prepare the dressing, put the honey in a small pot and heat it to make it fluid. Add the orange and tomato juice and simmer the mixture on low heat, until half is left and it has become a syrup. Remove it from the heat, allow to cool completely and stir in the chilli, salt and pepper.

Step 2:

Heat a pan / grill in the fire and sprinkle it with some olive oil. Add the marinated shrimps and fry for about 3-4 minutes on each side until they become golden brown.

Step 3:

Clean and slice the mango and the avocado. Place the salad leaves in a large bowl, add half of the dressing and stir gently. Serve the salad on a platter, or divide it on 4 dishes, shred the shrimp, mango and avocados and accompany it with the rest of the dressing.
