Spicy Mango Shrimp Recipe
- 14 OZ Large Shrimp (peeled, deveined – I used frozen)
- 1 Large Mango (cubed)
- 1 Cup Onion (chopped)
- Juice From 1 Small Lime (about 3 TBS)
- Handful Fresh Basil (chopped)
- 1 TSP Red Pepper
- 2 TSP Garlic (minced)
- 2 TBS Soy Sauce
In a large frying pan, heat 2 TBS Olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and saute until they start turning golden brown. Add soy sauce, basil, red pepper, lime juice. Stir and cook for just about 3 minutes. Add shrimp. If frozen, cook until heated. If fresh, cook through. Should be just about 4-5 minutes. Finally, add in mango. Mix until completely coated. Stir occasionally so they warm evenly but do not allow them to get ‘mushy' Because, yuck. For a nice Summer dinner, serve over brown rice. Enjoy!
We made this and took it outside to eat. I had a frozen margarita and my hubby enjoyed a cold beer. We watched the sunset and had quite a nice little date night in! It's a perfect recipe for 2. If you double the recipe and use a smidgen less red pepper, it's a great way to get the kiddos to enjoy new foods! The sweet mango is a sure shot to get them to enjoy seafood. The end of Summer will be here before we know it, this is 1 of those ‘must have' dinners you should enjoy before the cold weather creeps back in!
