This is a Cambodian recipe!
Mango shrimp is awesome, and you should totally try it for yourself!
“Sweet meat? Savory fruit? What madness is this?!” Well, I’m glad you asked. It’s amazing. Just try it. The texture and balance of flavours in this simple dish are delicious. This recipe is super easy too. Look!
You will need:
5 cloves garlic
1 lb of shrimp
potato starch (corn starch works fine too)
salt and pepper
4. Dice your mango. The easiest way to do this is to skin it first then holding it length-wise cut horizontal lines, then vertical lines (towards the pit). Cut down the meat of the mango away from you and the chunks slide right off.
5. Once the onions and garlic start turning a golden colour, add the mango. Cook for about 5 minutes.
9. Mix 1 tbsp of starch with 1 cup of water and pour it into the pan.
If done right, the sauce should be smooth, the shrimps tender and moist, and the flavour a balance of savory, sweet, and salty.
