SUPERBOWL SUNDAY: Your new favorite appetizer!


Are you looking for a new favorite appetizer? Look no further! Mangoes' sweet and juicy flavor perfectly complements the savory and slightly smoky taste of grilled shrimp, creating a delicious interplay of flavors in every bite. In addition to enhancing the dish's complexity, the tender yet slightly firm texture of mangoes complements the tenderness of the shrimp, offering a satisfying combination of textures.

Mangoes are a great source of vitamins and antioxidants that contribute to the overall nutritional value of the dish. Vitamin C found in mangoes supports the absorption of iron from both the shrimp and plant-based sources, which enhances the body's ability to utilize this essential mineral. Additionally, mangoes' antioxidants, such as vitamin A and beta-carotene, protect cells from oxidative stress and support immune function.

Including mangoes and shrimp in your diet adds a diverse range of nutrients to your meal. Alongside the protein and healthy fats from the shrimp, the fiber, vitamins, and minerals from mangoes create a well-rounded and nutritious dish.

½ lb cooked, peeled and deveined shrimp (chopped)
