...and yesterday, I had for lunch a 'Mango Tandoori Chicken Pizza' - very tasty, but the ingredient that stood out was the drizzle - a mango sweet chili sauce - that was wonderful.

I'm thinking a little mango puree mixed into Asian Sweet Chili sauce would be it! :)

Thanks again everyone!

I made up a batch of mango salsa and basically followed my salsa recipe but used the mango vs the tomatoes and its really good. I'm going to sear me a tuna steak for lunch today and serve this alongside.

I'm going to give the smoothy a try next time.

My very favorite fruit! I think this recipe was in Cook's Illustrated, but no matter where it is from it is great.

Mango Sorbet

Mango, avocado, shrimp salad. I'll try to post a recipe. It is a favorite summer salad for our beach trips.

I eat mangos right off the pit... But if you really want to cook with them, I made a wonderful mango mousse. I took the recipe from my "Better Homes and Gardens: The Cookbook". It was pure decadence, and really put forward the uniquely creamy sweet taste of the mango fruit.

Oh yes! Big mess XD I'm convinced that it makes a great facial therapy. The only inconvenience is picking the fibres out of your teeth but so small compared to the joy of eating a just ripe mango.

At some point last summer I posted a recipe here for a mango soup. As I recall, it was amazing. I'll make that again as soon as the crop comes in!

Shrimp Avocado Mango salad- this is absolutely wonderful

Mango avocado shrimp salad
2 x ripe mangos, diced<
2 x ripe avocados, diced<
1 x small romaine lettuce, washed and torn into small pieces
1 x TBL chopped fresh coriander
1 LB cleaned, precooked large shrimp defrosted
1 x cup cooked rice or small pasta (I use orzo ie rice shaped pasta
Dressing:
2 x TBL fresh lemon juice
2 x cloves galic minced
1 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated or minced
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/4 tsp (turmeric)
2 tsp sugar
Put lettuce on large platter. Layer Avo then pasta then mango and lastly shrimp.Sprinkle well mixed dressing over the entire salad.I've found that in fact, this is nicer if the shrimp and mango are first put into a plastic bag with the dressing for a couple of hours .Serve sprinkled with cilantro.
