having reached this recipe via link promoting the benefits of using spices, I wonder how one can benefit from the 1/16 tsp of tumeric- per serving. the article spoke of western diet not having enough spices to ward off cancer/alzheimer's etc and then links to recipies with teeny amounts of the beneficial ingredient.... I dont get it!
Shrimp with Mango & Basil
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.

This was great. Here in southern CA it's easy to find great mango. But if you're stuck, look for mango slices in syrup in a jar in the produce section.
This has become one of my favorite recipes. It's incredibly easy if you use peeled shrimp, and delightfully tasty. I brought some to work today for lunch, and several of my coworkers commented on how good it looked and smelled. "Hey, will you make lunch for me too?" Well, no, but I'll give you the recipe.
Very easy to make and had very good flavor! I have never used Tumeric before so I was not sure what to expect. I only used a 1/4 tsp of the Cayenne and it had just a little bite of heat. I may add more next time. Very delicious with a lttle Basmati rice on the side.
I really enjoyed this recipe for it's simplicity and use of turmeric (which is amazing for you) and light flavors. Make sure you get a good mango, mine was from wal-mart and didn't taste all that great. I will continue to purchase them organic from now on since they come out tasting much better.
