Flavorful colorful recipe that is easy to whip up quickly. The picture posted doesnt do the recipe justice. My boyfriend loved it and basically ate 3 servings instead of saving it for our work lunches tomorrow. I used more cayenne pepper for more kick, and threw in some paprika to add to the sweetness a little. I also accidentally had a little of cumin in there by accident, but it worked out well.
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.
16 Reviews for Shrimp with Mango & Basil
Made this last night and was quite impressed with the very tasty flavor from so simple a set up (just 3 ingredients on the shrimp?!). The turmeric helps subdue any strong shrimp flavor so you get a pleasant savoriness from them. It was certainly quick and easy, and my only complaint is that I really wanted there to be some more liquid with the dish. We served it with pineapple rice and just wished for a little more sauciness to the shrimp. Plus there was all the nice fond on the pan that could have been brought up for flavor. If I make again, i would add a splash of water, broth, or maybe even white wine to help in that regard.
The shrimp is delicious; I rarely marinate shrimp in advance of throwing it into a pan, and this was worth it. The cayenne was super spicy and worked well with the mango. I also added a red pepper, a yellow pepper, a red onion, and some lime juice. Also, served this for 2 because let's be real... 183 calories is NOT dinner! Made some couscous with extra fresh basil and lime juice mixed in. Will definitely make again.
Made this tonight for dinner. It was delicious. My boyfriend normally hates any type of seafood, but the spices in this dish completely erase any type of fishy taste. I changed the recipe a little and used 2 mangoes and extra chili powder. I also simplified it by buying the pre-cooked shrimp, so all I had to do was heat everything up and it was ready to go in a few minutes. Really fast to make, I will definitely make this again.
I thought this recipe was awesome. The seasoning on the shrimp is definitely the highlight. I don't like super spicy foods, so I used the lower amount of cayenne. It had a good kick without being too hot. It would be fantastic on a bed of rice.
