Serves: 2-3 Servings
  • Shrimps - 200 gms, peeled & de-veined
  • Ripe mango - 2, about 500 gms whole
  • Avocado - 1
  • Cherry tomatoes - 10 to 12
  • Red onion - ½ of a medium onion
  • Olive oil - 1 tablespoon
  • Garlic - 3 to 4 cloves, minced
For Salad dressing:
  • Extra virgin olive oil - 2 tbsp
  • Lime juice - 1 tsp (or more if you prefer)
  • Dijon mustard - 1 tsp (optional)
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  1. Wash the shrimps thoroughly and drain out all the water. Heat the olive oil in a skillet and add minced garlic to it.
  2. After about 5 seconds, add the shrimps and let them cook in a single layer for 6 to 7 minutes on medium flame. Do not flip the shrimps too quickly.
  3. After 6 to 7 minutes, flip the shrimps over and cook other side for 5 more minutes.
  4. Once the shrimps are completely opaque, take them out on a plate along with all the juice released from them.
  5. Prepare the salad dressing by whisking all the ingredients in a bowl or in a mason jar.
  6. Peel and cut the mangoes into 1-inch cubes. Cut the avocado in half, remove the seed and peel; then cut them into 1-inch cubes.
  7. Cut the cherry tomatoes into half; thinly slice the onion.
  8. Now in a large mixing bowl, add all the ingredients one by one. Make sure to add all the shrimp juice as it has all the shrimp flavors in it.
  9. Then drizzle half of the salad dressing on top. Now with two salad spoons, mix the salad but make sure to use light handed strokes, else the soft fruits like mango and avocado will disintegrate.
  10. Do a taste test and add more dressing if needed. Once you are happy with the seasoning, transfer the salad to a large serving bowl and sprinkle freshly crushed black pepper on top.
  11. Your shrimp mango salad is done and ready to serve! Enjoy!
