Spicy Cucumber Mango Skewers


  • The juice of two small limes (plus extra for serving)

  • The zest of one lime (plus extra for garnish)

  • 2 Tablespoons/ 30 ml extra virgin olive oil

  • 1-2 small Thai (or other similarly hot) chili pepper, seeds removed and finely chopped

  • Coarse sea salt to taste

  • 1 long seedless English cucumber, peeled and sliced

  • 1 large ripe mango, peeled and cut into cubes

  • 1-2 Tablespoons fresh chopped mint

  • about 12 small Skewers


  1. Whisk lime juice, lime zest, oil, and chopped red pepper in a large shallow dish until combined. Season with salt to taste.

  2. Add the cucumber and mango and gently toss to coat. Chill and marinate for at least ½ an hour to allow the flavors to develop.

  3. When ready to serve, thread the cucumber and mango pieces onto skewers in an alternating fashion. Sprinkle with extra lime zest, fresh mint and sea salt and serve garnished with cut limes on the side, if desired.
