Indian Spiced Shrimp with Mango Salad

I have started to fall in love with the Indian spices in my cabinet (aka completely unorganized black hole of spices above my sink.) They hid out for a really long time in the back and I finally rooted them out to make the Slow Cooker Saag Paneer I shared this past weekend. Since then I have been experimenting with them in quite a few recipes, including this simple Grilled Shrimp dish. The spice combination adds just a bit of heat and touch of smokiness to any dish. Don’t like shrimp? You can easily substitute in chicken breast or thighs, but into strips.
