Summer surely is a perfect time to grill though I try to grill in any weather if possible. I find it as comforting as baking, each with its own charms and techniques that make them so unique and fun. I like to grill both outdoors and indoors and I like to grill everything possible. The flavors generally get much more complex and bolder making every meal delightful and tasty. This is really what comes to my mind when I hear the word “grilling” or “barbecuing”. Deliciously exciting feelings cross my mind that involve the sizzling sounds of meat and vegetables hitting the hot grates of the grill while the smoky clouds rise from the searing food. This is probably why we grill so much in our home. I just really hate cleaning the grill, no love lost there! That is really the part I don’t like to think about.
On a side note please make sure to use fresh shrimp and devein them.
yields: about 1 1/2 -2 cups
In a food processor, pulse all the ingredients from the cilantro to the water to make a smooth chutney. Adjust the taste with additional salt and pepper if desired. Store the chutney in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
yields: 6 servings
Note: I like to serve these shrimp straight off the grill on a bed of fresh crisp veggies such as radishes, sweet bell peppers and grape tomatoes. Cucumbers, carrots and lettuce are a great addition too.
Wonderfully summery and ever so scrumptious looking! A mouthwatering dish.
I would eat them all summer.
What a beautiful recipe. My family loves shrimps and I really love to grill (way better than turning on the oven in the hot summer)! 🙂 I can't wait to try out your recipe. The cilantro mint chutney sounds refreshing and delicious.
i love everything in this post- grilling, chutney and shrimps!
These look SO wonderful – what a fresh, flavorful meal! And I agree – you can't beat grilling all year long. =)

looks lovely & delicious…mouthwatering!
Soooo mouthwatering!! A lovely recipe for summer 🙂
I still remember when I first tried cilantro when I came to the US. I never had it in Japan before (now it's getting popular) and I thought the smell was so strong. After a few trial, I became in love with it and now it's one of my favorite herbs that I enjoy! I am going to try this chutney as soon as I go home. Grilled shrimp sounds great with this! Can't wait to try~~~!
Thank you, Rosa!
Shrimp is so delicious! Thanks, Amber
