Coconut Honey Lime Shrimp with Sriracha Mango Dip

Hi! Its Jen stopping by from Carlsbad Cravings and I am so happy be sharing my new Coconut Honey Lime Shrimp with Sriracha Mango Dip with you! Hello delicious!

Coconut Honey Lime Shrimp with Mango Dip.

I love cooking or grilling shrimp because while it is so simple and quick to throw together with a marinade or a simple saute, the results always taste gourmet especially this Coconut Honey Lime Shrimp. This shrimp makes the perfect dinner or appetizer, is easy enough for everyday but impressive enough for company OR my personal favorite – company of one 🙂 (a reality in my house because my husband is allergic – so sad!).

This juicy shrimp is marinated in an intoxicating bath of honey, lime juice, coconut cream, soy sauce, garlic and ginger so every morsel is bursting with coconut honey lime flavor. After you whisk this marinade together, you separate out some of the coconut honey lime goodness and add it to your mango, vanilla yogurt and sriracha (no double measuring, no double work!) and blend to create a luscious, refreshing sweet heat dip that perfectly compliments the tender shrimp.

  1. I made this tonight, absolutely love this! I felt like I was eating a restaurant meal. 5☆☆☆☆☆
    My mango dip was a bit chunky for somw reason so I added more coconut cream ( I use this instead of vanilla yogurt) and a bit of olive oil.
