Tonight's Dinner: Sweet & spicy mango shrimp
Mangoes and some sweet chili sauce make shrimp the perfect choice for a warm spring night.
Shrimp is one of those shellfish that's great hot or cold; it's delicious plain or swimming in sauce, but however you choose to prepare these scrumptious morsels of goodness, nothing compares to the sweet tropical flavor of mango. That sweet flavor enhances shrimp the way no other fruit can. Add some soy sauce and some sweet chili sauce, spoon it over steamed rice and you've got the perfect dinner for a warm evening outside.
