Cook, stirring, until thickened, about 30 seconds. Remove from heat; let cool.

  • Thread shrimp onto 8 skewers, using 4 shrimp per skewer. Season on both sides with salt and pepper. Thread mango slivers onto 4 skewers, using 2 pieces per skewer. Brush shrimp and mango all over with glaze.

  • Heat grill to medium-high; oil grates. Place shrimp and mango skewers on grill; cook, turning once, until blackened in spots and shrimp are opaque throughout, 3 to 4 minutes.

  • In a large bowl, whisk together remaining tablespoon lime juice with the oil; season with salt and pepper. Add watercress; toss to coat.

  • To serve, divide watercress among four plates; top each with 2 shrimp skewers and 1 mango skewer.

Cook's Notes

You will need 12 metal or wooden skewers. To keep them from scorching on the grill, soak the wooden skewers in water while preparing the ingredients.

A little dry but still really good. I would double the glaze so there is plenty to cover
