Shrimp And Mango Curry

Created by jclawson, Monday, 06 December 2010


Mangoes are costly in supermarkets. But if you happen to be traveling in South Florida between May and September when seemingly everyone has mangoes falling off their trees, you can eat your fill for almost nothing. This recipe was developed by Allen Susser, owner-chef at Chef Allen’s, one of Miami’s most famous restaurants. Unlike many curries, which are served on rice with a long list of garnishes, this meal is complete in one pot. If you like less fiery dishes, omit the cayenne.


At a glance
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 onion, diced
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
3 tablespoons Madras curry powder
1/2-teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 teaspoons fine sea salt, divided
2 cups canned coconut milk
2 cups water
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1/2-teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
16 jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 mature green mango, peeled, cut from the pit, and diced
3 tablespoons scallions, including green parts
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro


In a large, heavy saucepan, heat the butter over medium heat. Saute the onion and garlic for approximately 3 minutes or until aromatic. Stir in the ginger, curry powder, cayenne pepper, and 2 teaspoons of the sea salt. Stir in the coconut milk and water. Bring to a simmer and cook 5 minutes. Add the sweet potato and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Season the shrimp with the black pepper and the other teaspoon of sea salt. Add the shrimp and mango to the pan, return to a simmer, and cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until the shrimp are evenly pink. Sprinkle with the scallions and cilantro. This recipe serves four. Complete the menu with pita bread, cottage cheese and pineapple salad, and mango ice cream for dessert.
