I used to slice them very thin. Add some sugar, rum and lime juice. Served it over ice cream. It was tasty!

add it to a smoothie
1 lg Mangos, peeled, pitted & cut into 1/8" dice
3/4 of one lime, peeled & sections (I peeled and chopped)
1 jalapenos, minced
1 Tbsps white wine vinegar

Put all in pot and simmer ~20 min. If looks a lilttle too dry, add tad of water.

I served it hot over the Ahi, but also put a bowl out along side and the cold was very good also.
and here's a great sauce for Asian spring rolls

Mango Catsup:
1 C Mango Puree (or diced fresh mango)
4 T Major Grey’s Chutney
4 T Catsup
2 T Soy
2 T Champagne Vinegar
4-6 each Dashes Tobasco Sauce

Puree ingredients in food processor.

mango and pineapple cubes with cherries put into tinfoil with a stick of Cinnamon and rum or brandy, wrapped a parcel and put around the edge of a BBQ, works quite nicely too, you can Add brown sugar if you want, but it`s nice without also.

Oh wow you guys really came through. Thanks so much for the recipes.
When I'm working with an ingredient I'm not real familiar with I like to try out a recipe or two before venturing out on my own. Thanks again!

Sizz, a few I like:

Mango chutney & grilled salmon

Mango 'cocktail' - mix mangos, blueberries a few tbl of rum, add a sprig of mint and serve in a martini glass. I have a recipe somewhere, where you add pina colada mix & rum to the 'cocktail' mix.

Salad - mangos, berries, spinach.

Sticky rice and mangos. YUM.

Mangoes are so versatile, they go well with sweet as well as savory

I prefer the sweet and here is how I enjoy it

- Just slice it and eat it by itself
- Mango milkshake
- Mango Lassi (yogurt, mango and sugar)
- Mango Panacotta
- Mango Icecream/Kulfi
- Mango Chutney
- Great addition to fruit salsa
- I love to dice ripe mangoes and add then to trifles, custards, puddings etc.

I am in the chutney and salsa camp on this. I love mango when used in spicy and savory dishes.

I was watching Iron Chef last night....with a house full of company, so I missed details, but it was a mango competition. Most of it looked wonderful. You should check out the website to get the recipes.

I like to mix mango into my spicy salsa recipe for shrimp or chicken wraps.

I use fresh chopped tomatoes, chopped red onion, jalepeno, lime juice, cilantro and a bit of cumin, salt & pepper. Delicious.
