It’s funny how a meal can evolve from the need to use a single ingredient and for this meal it was an aging mango. Bev said we need to use the mango and I suggested grilled shrimp with mango salsa – she jumped at that. Since we were grilling and having something sweet, I opted for grilled sweet potato as a side and since it’s asparagus time in Tennessee, we grilled up some of it as well.
Bev made a salsa from the mango using the recipe from Ellie Krieger of the Food Network
1 mango, peeled and diced
1/2 cup peeled, diced cucumber
1 tablespoon finely chopped jalapeno
1/3 cup diced red onion
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/3 cup roughly chopped cilantro leaves
Salt and pepper
Combine the mango, cucumber, jalapeno, red onion, lime juice and cilantro leaves and mix well. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
We used Home BBQ’s Mango Magic on the shrimp, potatoes, and asparagus and didn't care for it, but the salsa was delicious.
