DIRECTIONS

  • Lower shrimp (or bugs) into large pan of lightly salted boiling water. Simmer uncovered for 4-5 minutes or until shells have changed to an orange red color. Gently separate the heads from the bodies. Use a pair of sharp kitchen scissors to cut along the soft underside of the bugs. Pull shell apart and ease out the flesh. Cut each piece of flesh in half, lengthways.
  • To make the mango sauce: peel the mango(s), remove the seeds and roughly chop flesh. Place flesh in a food processor. Add sour cream, juice, sugar and sauce. Process for 20-30 seconds or until smooth. Refrigerate, covered, until needed. If the sauce is too thick, add a little extra cream or juice.
  • Dip your bugs into the sauce like a shrimp cocktail and enjoy!
