Want the most impressive shrimp appetizer in literally 5 minutes? Well here you go! You won’t even believe how easy this is. Who said cooking shrimp was hard?


2 tablespoons butter

2 cloves garlic

1 tablespoon sambal chilies 

Juice from 1 orange

Juice from 1 lime

1 pound large peeled and deveined shrimp



1 mango, peeled and diced

Sliced scallions


In a skillet melt the butter over medium high heat

To the melted butter add the minced garlic and cook 1 minute until fragrant

Add in the sambal chilies and cook another minute

To that add in the orange juice, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine

Add the shrimp to the pan and let them cook for about 1-2 minutes on each side. Make sure you don’t over cook them… they get rubbery!

Once the shrimp are done cooking it’s time to plate up everything

If you’re wanting to make them individual appetizers by putting them in cups add a little mango to the bottom, a few shrimp, drizzle of the juice, and top off with sliced scallions. If you’re wanting to do it more family style add the shrimp and juice to a serving plate and sprinkle the top with the diced mango and scallions

How easy is that?! A quick and very impressive appetizer that everyone will love.
