Shrimp Sauté with Mango Chutney

mangochutney

Last night I spent about 10 minutes making dinner and it was so good that I must tell you about it.  Sunset magazine’s “Shrimp and Spicy Mango Sauté” (February 2016) provided the guidance.  I had mango chutney, not mango relish, as they called for in the recipe, so I used less (due to its sweetness) and sprinkled some dried red chile flakes at the table for “spicy”.  Everybody liked it!

 

Amy’s Kitchen Coach Tips:

  • Shrimp:  When I’m lazy, I purchase frozen shrimp that have been peeled and deveined.  Wild caught ones from either Louisiana or Mexico are my current favorites.  I leave them in my freezer and defrost the amount I need just before cooking.  (Thawed shrimp do not keep more than a day.)
  • How to defrost shrimp:  frozen shrimp go into a bowl of cold water in the sink.  Technically, food safety experts recommend you leave the water running into the bowl.  I can’t stand the thought of “wasting” water, so I just fill the bowl and let the shrimp sit there.  In about 30 minutes, they’re thawed.  I then remove each from the water and place in a single layer on a paper towel lined plate to dry off before cooking.
