This isn't my recipe ..its delicious.


1 lb raw shrimp , cleaned, peeled, and deveined
1 egg white
2 teaspoons cornstarch
teaspoon salt , plus
teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sesame oil , plus
2 teaspoons sesame oil
teaspoon white pepper
1 lb mango , peeled and cubed
2 tablespoons peanut oil , plus
1 tablespoons peanut oil
1 tablespoons fresh ginger , peeled and chopped fine
1 tablespoons garlic , chopped fine
1 tablespoon rice wine or 1 tablespoon dry sherry
chopped scallion , for garnishing

In a bowl large enough to hold the shrimp, combine the egg white, cornstarch, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp sesame oil, and white pepper.

Pat the shrimps dry, and mix them well with this marinade, making sure all are well coated.

Leave in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.

Heat a wok or large frying pan until very hot.

Add 2 TBS peanut oil.

When the oil is very hot, remove the wok from the heat and add the prawns.

Stir vigorously to prevent them sticking, return to heat and cook until they turn white, about 2 minutes depending upon the size of your shrimp.

Remove the shrimp, and discard the oil.

Wipe wok with paper toweling, removing all residues.

Return the wok to the heat, again heating until very hot.

Add 1 1/2 TBS peanut oil, and when very hot, add the ginger and garlic.

Stir fry for 10 seconds.

Return the shrimp to the wok and add the rice wine or sherry, and 1/2 tsp salt.

Stir-fry for one minute.

Add the mango cubes and stir gently for 1 minute to warm them.

Stir in 2 tsp sesame oil.Serve with rice, garnished with chopped scallions.

About 2,270 results on youTube for mango salsa recipe videos.... Mangoes are very in now in for cooking but most of this is done up north where they get the crappy mangoes and doctor them up best they can and pour it over some steak or chicken. All us backyard mango growing fools are actually kings because through our labors, money spent, strategizing and IQ we have trees in our backyard producing peak of ripeness mangoes that we (+family + friends + enemies) can eat plain (maybe + a little salt and or lime juice) for the ultimate mango experience.

Florida real estate crash, Greece about to crater and suck down the EU on March 20th, Obama's EPA forcing 15 coal fired electric plants to shut down and jack up your electric rates? Who cares our mangoes are in bloom and it's looking like a good 2012 year.
