  • 1-2 fully ripe mangos (about 1 pound to yield 1 cup puree)
  • Juice and zest of one lime
  • Sea salt
  • 16 raw medium shrimp (41/50 count)
  • 1 tsp. Sichuan pepper or black peppercorns, crushed
  • 1 Tbsp. fennel seed, crushed
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • Diced ripe mango, 8-16 pieces, as needed
  • Zest of 1 lime, for garnish, optional
  • Fresh basil or mint leaves, for garnish, optional
  • Peel the mangos and cut the fruit away from the seed. Coarsely chop and blend until smooth. Season puree with lime juice and a generous pinch of sea salt. Set aside.
    Shell the shrimp, keeping only the tail intact. Refrigerate until ready to cook.
    In a large skillet, over medium heat, toast pepper and fennel in olive oil until the mixture becomes fragrant. Add shrimp and sauté in the spice mixture, stirring regularly, until cooked through, 8-10 minutes. When shrimp is cooked, add garlic, ginger and a sprinkling of salt to the pan. Continue cooking and stirring for 2 minutes, then let cool to room temp.
