Chutney. Such a strange word, right? Chutney stems from Asian cuisine and means a mixture of spices, vegetables or fruit. In our case today we will be using mango chutney. Although I could make mango chutney from scratch, I took the lazy route and bought a jar of it from the store. I’m just going to throw this out there – I also could have caught the shrimp needed for this recipe, but again I took the easy, er lazy, route and got them from the store as well.
This recipe is fairly easy to follow as there are few ingredients along with few steps. I was inspired by Deschutes Hop Trip Shrimp with Mango Glaze recipe.
What you will need for this recipe:
2 pounds of shrimp
2 cups mango chutney
3″ ginger root cut into coins
2 oz honey
1 cup water
1 cup beer – I recommend a blonde or IPA beer
You will add all the ingredients in a pan minus the shrimp. Bring to a boil and let it reduce slightly. Remove the ginger and place the liquid in a bowl in the fridge to chill for one hour.
Once the hour is up, add the shrimp (pre-cooked) to the glaze and that’s it! I did end up making rice to go along with the shrimp as I wanted this to be more of a meal than a appetizer.
Pretty simple right?
