Shrimp and mango cocktail

por Elsie Mendez Enriquez
During the hot days we are craving for something fresh that doesn’t involve spending hours in the kitchen, so we know that our Shrimp and Mango Cocktail is going to be one of your favorites as it takes less than 15 minutes to be ready.

If you thought you had already seen all the Shrimp and Mango Cocktail recipes, this one will prove you wrong.

If I had to choose between all the fruits we have access to in Mexico, mango is definitely number 1, I really love them! By by itself or with yogurt or desserts, I love them. Some time ago my mother-in-law shared a recipe with me but the thing is that it took a while to make it (although it is also very easy) because it requires the shrimp to be marinated for a while. With this recipe there is no need to wait for the shrimp to be ready once the preparation is finished.

When you go to the market or supermarket for your shrimp, don’t buy those tiny ones called pacotilla, this cocktail goes with medium to large shrimp that are already cooked.

To prepare the Shrimp and mango cocktail we will need:

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup of freshly squeezed sour lime juice
  • 750g cooked shrimp, skinned and cleaned
  • 2 manila or ataulfo mangoes (for these cocktails I like ataulfo mangoes better because of their harder consistency) skinned and cut into small cubes.
  • 1 lettuce
  • Salt to taste
Let’s take a large glass bowl and mix the mayonnaise with the lemon juice and season it with salt. Once the mayonnaise is perfectly mixed with the lemon juice and salt, add the shrimp and mangos and mix carefully but make sure that all the ingredients are well combined.

Now, to serve, we are going to use individual glass bowls or bowls with a whole or chopped lettuce – remember to wash and disinfect it very well and then dry it with kitchen paper -. Divide the mix into the bowls with the lettuce and that’s it! This recipe is for 4 people so either put more or less depending on how much you want to make.
