Try This Kid-Friendly Mango Curry Shrimp Recipe That Adults Will Love Too
As a private chef, I steer clear of using pre-made sauces or too many jarred items when working. It’s my job to make those items from scratch. But recently, while cooking for nearly 30 people of all ages at a villa in Turks and Caicos, I found myself in a bind and grabbed some mango chutney along with other pantry staples to whip up this simple mango curry shrimp. Low and behold, the serving dish returned to the kitchen clean as a whistle and requests for more quickly followed. Both adults and kids L-O-V-E-D it. Score.
Full disclosure: Chutney is largely comprised of sugar, so it’s no wonder this dish is met with such popularity. I personally try to limit my sugar consumption, but sometimes ease, convenience, and yum factor win. What’s a little sugar here and there in exchange for a real crowd pleaser? I often make this for Sunday family dinners, and everyone gets seriously excited when they hear it’s on the menu. If shrimp is an issue, substitute cubes of chicken breast or fried tofu.
