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.

Ingredients

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Toss shrimp with salt, cayenne to taste and turmeric in a medium bowl. Cover; refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

    Advertisement
  • 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.

  • Add mango, scallion greens and basil and cook, stirring, until the shrimp is just cooked and starts to barely curl, 1 to 2 minutes.

Tips

Tip: How to cut a mango:
1. Slice both ends off the mango, revealing the long, slender seed inside. Set the fruit upright on a work surface and remove the skin with a sharp knife.
2. With the seed perpendicular to you, slice
the fruit from both sides of the seed, yielding two large pieces.
3. Turn the seed parallel to you and slice the two smaller pieces of fruit from each side.
4. Cut the fruit into the desired shape.

One of our all time favorites! The picture does not do it justice. Its far more vibrant and colorful looking. It was easy to make and I served with a brown rice/quinoa blend. My kids and husband raved about it so much that I am making it twice in one week. Pros: Quick healthy spicy tasty flavorful Cons: not for kids who don't like spice Read More

Delicious 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. Pros: Great heat and taste Read More

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. Read More

Delicious & great starting point 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. Read More

tumeric is one of the best medicinal spices we can utilize... 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! Pros: its about the tumeric Cons: is there enough? Read More

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. Read More
