Fantastic Mango Shrimp

shrimp-mango-cilantro

I know this doesn't look like much, but it tastes divine! I was served this as part of a very untraditional christmas smorgasbord, and after trying it, I went back for seconds and thirds! It'll be great for summer, but since shrimp is pretty good this time of year, why not give it a go right now? (Although, use better shrimp than I did - the quality really does make a difference. I was lazy and used ready-peeled in brine, and they were just ok.)

I know I've posted about something similar, but sans the cilantro and with sweet chili sauce. Cilantro makes everything better, but if you feel differently, just skip it. And add some finely chopped red chili if you want a spice kick - it'll be great!

Fantastic Mango Shrimp

100 g shrimp, cooked and peeled
1 bunch cilantro
100 g mango, diced
1 tbsp lime juice
1/2 red onion, finely chopped

Just put in a bowl and toss. Serve with anything - but definitely try it on some tortilla chips!

This is always included in our Aussie Christmas feasts...full of fresh, light summer flavours...great with avocado too and our favourite way to do the prawns is to marinate peeled large green prawns in tons of crushed garlic, lime zest and a little olive oil...bbq or pan fry and toss with the mango, avocado, corriander, sweet chilli etc...yummmmmmmm...Kate

They also call it ceviche (though sometimes it does not have mango) in Texas. It is usually found in Mexican restaurants...in case you are ever out somewhere and want some...I love your pictures and your blog!

I love shrimps and mango but I never tried them together. Hmmm... Maybe I can add this recipe for our family reunion this Sunday. I will be hosting it and I am sure everybody will love to try the new recipe I will be making.
