Sautéed Shrimp with Warm Tropical Fruit Salsa
My version of a wonderful recipe from Simply Recipes
1 cup Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
1 lb Raw Shrimp, peeled and deveined
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Mango, peeled and diced
2 Kiwi, peeled and diced
1/4 cup Green Onion, finely diced
1 tsp Sugar
1/4 tsp Chili Powder
1 Lime, juiced
1/8 tsp salt
3 fresh Mint Leaves, julienned
Fresh Ground Pepper
Heat a large sauté pan to medium heat. Add coconut flakes, stirring constantly. When flakes start to brown on the edges, remove from heat and transfer to a plate to cool.
In the same pan add 2 teaspoons of cooking oil, heat to medium heat, add diced onion and sauté for 1 minute. Add mango and kiwi and cook until bubbly and softened, about for 1 minute. Poor into a bowl, add mint, sugar, chili powder, salt and lime, mix together.
Season shrimp with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a sauté pan to medium heat. Add shrimp, cook for 2 minutes each side or until cooked through.
Serve shrimp on a bed of rice or alone. Pour on the tropical salsa on top of the shrimp. Sprinkle with toasted coconut flakes and fresh ground pepper. Enjoy!
