Korean Shrimp Skewers - gochujang marinated

The full mildly spicy taste of gochujang, the sweetness of mango, the saltiness of the fish sauce, the lime acidity. It probably won't get more tropical than these Korean Shrimp skewers. A simple meal that does perfectly as a snack or served with some fried rice as a tasty full meal.
