I think I remember 1 or 2 members here mentioning that they like to use a spice blend called Tajin. I just came across this recipe.

Mango Skewers with Chile-Lime Seasoning

1. Thread mango cubes onto skewers (if using wooden skewers, soak them in water for about 20 minutes first).
2. Grill the mango skewers over medium-high heat, turning, until well marked, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
3. Sprinkle with chile-lime seasoning. (like Tajin)
