One of my favorite family memories was from a few years ago when my daughter was barely a toddler and we travelled to Seattle. During our visit we made a stop at a popular crab shack. It was noisy, the meals were messy (mostly eaten by hand) and Molly loved every second of it.
This month’s Patak’s post is inspired by that memory and the trademark seafood and vegetable boil of every great crab shack. Since it is bbq season I wanted to incorporate that into this dish. This boil is finished off by putting it on skewers, brushing it in a sweet and tangy sauce made with Patak’s Sweet Mango Chutney and lightly grilling them on the barbecue. This dish is really quick and easy to make and is an awesome addition to your summer grilling menu.
Mango, Shrimp & Saugage Boil Skewers
Makes six skewers
- 3 fresh cobs of corn cut into about 4 pieces per cob
- 12 baby potatoes
- 12 large shrimp
- 3 sausages cut into large chunks
- 1 jar of Patak’s Sweet Mango Chutney
- 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
Bring a large pot of water to boil over hight heat.
Put the potatoes in the pot and boil for 5 minutes.
Add the pieces of corn and boil for another five minutes.
Add the shrimp and sausage and boil for another five minutes.
Remove from heat and drain the water.
In a medium sized bowl mix together the jar of Sweet Mango Chutney, the soy sauce and the olive oil.
Place the vegetables, shrimp and sausage on the skewers, alternating however you please. I find starting and ending with corn is ideal because it tends to stay in place well and hold the rest of the food on the skewers.
Brush generously with the mango mixture.
Place on a grill that has been preheated on medium. Grill for about 5 minutes on each side, basting again with the sauce as you turn the skewers.
If you don’t have skewers or just don’t want to use them, you can place all the boiled ingredients in a foil pan, mix in the mango sauce and grill, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes.
