Variations Ideas

  • Add Sweetness – For even more sweet flavor combine brown sugar and maple syrup to the oil mixture to brush on the mangos.
  • Extra Flavor – Add in ¼ teaspoon of extract such as vanilla extra or the zest from orange, lemon or lime.
  • Make Skewers – Thread chunks of mango with other large pieces of fruit and meats onto to wooden skewers for a delicious variation.

How to Make Grilled Mango

  • Step 1 – Preheat the grill to medium-high heat (around 400°F).

Step 3 – In a small bowl, whisk together the avocado oil, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper to create a marinade.

Expert Tips

  • Mangos – Choose mangoes that are ripe but still firm to ensure they hold up well on the grill.
  • Prepare Grill Grates – For the best results and flavor, make sure to clean and oil the grill grates before placing the mangos on the grill.
  • Cooking Time – Watch the mangos closely as you do not want to over cook them. You want them to have a beautiful char so make sure to flip often.
  • Slicing Mangos – Gently slice into the mangos making sure to go through to the skin.
