What You'll Need

  • 1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted and roughly chopped
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, plus 1-1/2 tablespoons adobo sauce
  • 1 tablespoon water

  2. Prepare grill for direct grilling over medium-high heat. Cut corn from cobs. Using back of knife, scrape cobs to release corn “milk,” and reserve along with kernels. In large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add leek, salt and pepper; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add jalapeño and red pepper; cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in lima beans, corn and corn milk. Cook until all vegetables are tender-crisp, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm.
  3. Double-skewer shrimp, placing 4 shrimp on each set of skewers. Brush shrimp with remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Place shrimp skewers on hot grill rack, and cook until shrimp turn opaque throughout and internal temperature reaches 145º, turning once, about 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from grill and brush with mango-chipotle sauce. Serve immediately over succotash.
