Shrimp with Mango & Basil

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/shrimp_with_mango_basil.html

From EatingWell:  February/March 2005, The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006)

This one-pan stir-fry is an Indian feast of sweet shrimp, perfumy mangoes and spicy basil. It's guaranteed to evoke dinnertime oohs and ahhs. Carbs are a time-tested way to take the pop out of the heat, so make sure you have plenty of aromatic jasmine rice to go with this fiery dish. Use prepeeled shrimp to make preparation a breeze.

4 servings, 1 cup each | Active Time: 15 minutes (if using peeled shrimp) | Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Toss shrimp with salt, cayenne to taste and turmeric in a medium bowl. Cover; refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; place the shrimp in a single layer and cook until the undersides turn salmon-pink, about 1 minute. Flip them over and cook for 1 minute more.
  3. Add mango, scallion greens and basil and cook, stirring, until the shrimp is just cooked and starts to barely curl, 1 to 2 minutes.
