  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 pound tiger shrimp (21/25 units per pound), shelled and deveined
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and deveined, diced
  • 2 tablespoons shallots, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, sliced
  • 1/4 cup good quality bourbon
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into large slices
  • 1 large Tomorrow's® Organics ripe mango, cut into large chunks
  • 1 Tomorrow's® Organics lime, zested and juiced
  • 2 teaspoons black sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Steamed rice (optional)


Step 1

Heat the canola oil in a large sauté pan until it just begins to smoke. Add the garlic, shallots, and jalapeño and sauté for 10 seconds, then add the shrimp.

Step 2

Sauté shrimp until they start to turn pink and begin to firm up. Remove the pan from the heat – and away from the flame, if using a gas burner – to add the bourbon. Return the pan to the heat and cook for 30 seconds to evaporate most of the bourbon.

Step 3

Reduce heat to medium-high and slowly add the butter, one slice at a time. Wait until each piece is incorporated before adding the next. Add the mango, and then gently toss the pan's contents to evenly coat all ingredients.

Step 4

Add the lime zest and juice, giving everything one more toss. Season to taste with salt.

Step 5

ASSEMBLE: Transfer to a large serving bowl; garnish with black sesame seeds and chopped cilantro. Serve with steamed rice if desired.
