We made spicy mango shrimp for dinner and took it outside to eat. I had a frozen margarita and my hubby enjoyed a cold beer. We watched the sunset and had quite a nice little date night in! It’s a perfect recipe for 2.

If you double the recipe and use a smidgen less red pepper, it’s a great way to get the kiddos to enjoy new foods! The sweet mango is a sure shot to get them to enjoy seafood.

The end of Summer will be here before we know it, this is 1 of those ‘must have’ dinners you should enjoy before the cold weather creeps back in!
