Mango and Lime Shrimp Fry

It's summer time in England!  YAY!  *runs around naked*.  And...and it's lasted longer than a day!  *runs around even faster*.  Rather than bombard you with BBQ recipes we've gone for something a bit different and gone for summer-y flavours like mango and lime in this easy recipe.  BBQs are all well and good but I'm not really allowed to play with fire any more and both Lei and Greg have hidden all the flammables.

What you'll need

500g of shrimp, peeled, de-shitted and washed
A lime
A ripe mango
A red onion
Half a chili
2 cloves of garlic
Butter (for frying)
Salt and pepper to season and
A handful of coriander (aka cilantro for you Yanks) to garnish.

The method
Finely chop all your veggies and/or blitz them in a food processor until you have a nice thick consistency. Take three to four tablespoons of your 'salsa' and coat your shrimp evenly.
Heat you pan, add butter and fry when hot until the shrimp becomes juicy and pink.

Um...serve!  That was it.  What?  I told you it was easy!

If it smells like fish.... probably is!  Dirty minded people ;)

I'm struggling to find ways of making fish taste good other than drowning it in bacon.  So I used chorizo!  Click on the image to go to the recipe!  Enjoy!!

The Greek eagle has landed

At 7:04am (GMT) on 2nd Feb 2014, Finn successfully completed his Atlantic crossing, in a time of 59 days 18 hours 4 minutes 9 seconds, travelling from Tenerife to Antigua, covering over 5000km. His boat was completely unaided along the way.
More people have been to space than have rowed across the Atlantic. This is one of the worlds toughest races, and conditions this year were particularly bad.
