We loved these shrimps! I didn't have a red chile pepper, so I smashed part of a poblano pepper and then sprinkled some paprika and Tajin seasoning. Served it with mango salsa.

These were delicious. I made them for our first barbecue of the year on Memorial Day and they were gone before I knew it. They were really enjoyed and I will be making them again soon!
