Fiery Shrimp with Florida Mango Over a Bed of Arugula

a plate of food on a table


1. Toss cleaned shrimp with salt, cayenne, garlic, turmeric, all spice, in a medium bowl. Cover; refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

2. Heat oil in a large pan or WOK, over medium-high heat; place the shrimp in and continue to sautée (or stir fry) until they turn salmon-pink, about 2 minutes.

3. Add mango, scallion greens, and red pepper, and basil and cook, stirring, until the shrimp is just cooked and starts to barely curl, another 2 minutes.  Turn off heat.

4.  Place Arugula Greens on the plate. Then take your Shrimp and Mango Mixture and place on top. Garnish with Basil leaf. Serve.

You may also serve with Jasmine Rice and use instead of the Arugula

**This can be a main dish with Rice or a nice summer salad.
