Salsa de Mango with Spicy Shrimps
Well i was hoping my next post would be about our favourite hangouts in Bahrain, after all we lived like tourists in Bahrain the last week we were there (except the last day that is...which was insanely busy n' tiring). But that is taking more time n' me getting back into the kitchen today kinda made me want to do this post right away. After hours of travelling, a tiring day we reached home n' it just feels so right!! It has started raining in Kerala already, not pouring but enough to keep the heat at bay.
There is an insane supply of fresh mangoes at home n' i have been freaking out on them, which has already resulted in a pimple on my face, a clear indication that i shouldn't overdo it...but what the hell...i just can't resist plucking one n' eating it...
Amma was making Shrimps today and i have been dying to try this Mango Salsa recipe that i had come across sometime back. I fell in love with the colors the first time i saw it n' the taste didn't disappoint me. Amma's Spicy Shrimps recipe was very similar to the Prawns Chili Fry recipe i had put up earlier n so i'm not putting it up here again. The Mango Salsa was a perfect accompaniment to the spicy shrimps, so here you go...
1.Mango: 1cup (cut into small cubes)
2.Tomatoes: 1/2 cup (seeded n' cut into small pieces)
3.Cilantro/ Coriander Leaves: 1tbsp (chopped)
4.Red onion:2 tsp(finely chopped)
5.Salt: 1/4 tsp(or as required)
6.Lime Juice: 1/2 tsp (or as required)
7.Black Pepper: a pinch (optional)
8.Green Chili: 3/4tsp ( seeded and veins removed, finely chopped)
Step 1: Combine all ingredients. Let stand for 10 minutes.
Step 2: Toss before serving.
Best served with some hot spicy seafood or grilled chicken or serve it with tortilla chips and give it a Mexican angle. ;)
