Taiwan: Mango Shrimp

Taiwan | May 12, 2015 | By

Mango is big in Taiwan. They grow all over the country and when they’re in season, people do a lot of cooking with them. This recipe is a great example of contrasting flavors and textures. The shrimp is crispy from a dredge in potato starch and a quick fry in oil while the mango is soft, slippery and a little funky. Everything comes together in a creamy mustard and lemon sauce. We served it over rice and with a side of spicy, stir-fried green beans. This dish is pretty unusual and really good.
