  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup beer or white wine
  • 1 lb jumbo deveined unpeeled shrimp

Make shrimp marinade: In a blender or food processor, combine garlic, paprika, brown sugar, cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper and beer and puree until it becomes a smooth paste. In a large bowl, combine shrimp and marinade and toss to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Make mango jalapeno sauce: In a blender, puree mango and water and set aside. In a saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot.

Remove saucepan from heat. Stir in yogurt.

Lightly coat a grill rack or nonstick grill pan with cooking spray. Set heat to medium-high. Cook shrimp about 2 minutes on each side. Remove shrimp and sprinkle with cilantro and a splash of fresh-squeezed lime juice. Serve shrimp with sauce.
