  1. I love mango and paired with shrimp this looks absolutely delicious. Thank you so much for the recipe.

  2. We made these last night and the family loved them! One note, do not let your husband make them for you! Instead of a drizzle of the sauce he put about 3 tablespoons and my mouth was instantly on fire! He used Sriracha sauce. But they were really good.
