Grilled Shrimp with Smooth Mango-Lime Vinaigrette


by: Dina

I have had some of my best meals at the beach, and I don’t mean in posh dining rooms with ocean views. I mean literally on the beach ...sitting at a plastic table under an awning while a couple cooks worked nearby on a hot grill. I’ve found these places, more like stalls than restaurants, along the coast of Mexico, Indonesia, and California; though I’m sure they are all over the tropics. The menu is usually scribbled on a chalkboard, and it doesn’t get much more complicated than whatever the local fishermen have brought in that day. The cooks grill the fish quickly, retaining juicy textures and ocean flavors while they turn out regional specialties like fish tacos with fresh salsa, seafood skewers with an herb sauce, and plump fillets with a squeeze of lemon.
