6-ShrimpwMango2I often make this recipe with chicken, but recently I gave it a try with shrimp and it was fantastic. Buy your mangoes a couple days ahead so they can ripen. I love this dish because it’s sweet and creamy,  but with a kick and it cooks so quickly.

Mango Shrimp
  • ½ cup yogurt
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ⅛ cup lemon juice
  • ¼ fresh cilantro
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lb shrimp, peeled
  • 2 mangoes, peeled, diced
  • Cooked rice
  1. Place the yogurt, garlic, lemon juice, cilantro, parsley, paprika, cumin, olive oil and salt and pepper in the food processor and blend completely.
  2. Marinate the shrimp in this mixture for 2-4 hours.
  3. Place in an 8x11 baking dish and bake at 400 for 15 minutes, or until the shrimp is cooked through.
  4. Serve with rice and mangoes.
