You’ll want to break out the grill for this mouthwatering seafood dish! Chopped fresh mango perfectly complements the sweet and spicy barbecue shrimp in this exotic dish, while jalapeño peppers add some kick.

Ingredients
20 frozen large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined (26 to 30 per pound)
1/2 cup uncooked brown rice
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger
1 cup chopped fresh mango** (about 1 medium mango)
2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon finely chopped and seeded jalapeño pepper*
2 teaspoons lime juice

Directions
1 – Thaw shrimp according to package directions.

2 – Cook brown rice according to package directions, omitting salt; set aside.

3 – Meanwhile, thread shrimp onto 4 metal skewers, leaving 1/8-inch space between shrimp. In small bowl stir together barbecue sauce and ginger. Grill shrimp on greased rack of uncovered grill directly over medium heat for 6 to 7 minutes or until shrimp are opaque, turning once and brushing frequently with sauce mixture.

4 – Stir mango, onion, cilantro, jalapeño, and lime juice into hot rice. Spoon onto serving plates. Serve shrimp on top of rice mixture.

Note: Mangos are chock-full of vitamins A and C. They also are rich in fiber and contain over 20 different vitamins and minerals.

**Note: To chop a mango, first cut off all four sides around the pit. Then slide a knife between the skin and meat of the mango. Remove skin and cut into chunks then chop into smaller pieces.

*Note: Jalapeño peppers can sting and irritate the skin, so wear rubber gloves when handling peppers and do not touch your eyes.

Chili Rubbed Pork with Mango Salsa w/ New Potatoes

Today’s Menu: Chili Rubbed Pork with Mango Salsa w/ New Potatoes

 

Chili Rubbed Pork with Mango Salsa w New Potatoes 014
For Breakfast I had an Egg Beater’s Egg White Scrambled Egg, 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, 2 slices of Toasted Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Love a good Breakfast! After my morning workout it was house cleaning day. Ran the vacuum and dusted. Swept up and cleaned outside on the deck and driveway, getting a lot of leaves this year. After cleaning got the cart out for a while to enjoy another beautiful Fall Day, sunny and 70 degrees! Clouds and rain moving in though overnight and Saturday, much needed rain. For dinner tonight anew recipe, I prepare a Chili Rubbed Pork with Mango Salsa w/ New Potatoes.

 

 

I had come across this recipe from a McCormick Recipe email and had been wanting to try for some time, like dinnerChili Rubbed Pork with Mango Salsa w New Potatoes 001 tonight! To make this I’ll need the following; 1 package McCormick® Chili Seasoning Mix, 1 tablespoon packed Splenda Brown Sugar, 1 large ripe Mango (peeled) – seeded and finely chopped (1 cup), 1/3 cup finely chopped Red Onion, 2 tablespoons Orange Juice, 1 tablespoon chopped Cilantro, 2 Pork Tenderloins (about 1 pound each), and 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The ingredients of one delicious Pork Tenderloin! I used Splenda Brown Sugar instead of the regular Brown Sugar and I also used the McCormick® Chili Seasoning Mix instead of the Gluten-Free McCormick® Chili Seasoning Mix (Kroger was out of stock of it). The original recipe and web link is at the end of the post.

 
To prepare the dish I mixed the Seasoning Mix and Sugar in small bowl. For the Mango Salsa, mixed the Mango, Onion, Orange Juice, Cilantro and 1 teaspoon of the Seasoning Mixture in medium bowl. Covered and refrigerated Chili Rubbed Pork with Mango Salsa w New Potatoes 010until ready to serve.

I then brushed the Pork Tenderloins with Oil. Coated evenly with remaining seasoning mixture. Refrigerated for 1 hour, for extra flavor.

To prepare it preheat the oven to 375°. Add Pork to pan; cook 4 minutes, browning on all sides. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes or until a thermometer registers 145° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. I use this cooking method when I prepare my Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin and it always comes out perfect. The Tenderloin came moist and delicious! Love the McCormick® Chili Seasoning Mix along with Brown Sugar, nice crust and perfect flavor. A definite “Keeper Recipe”.

 

Seasoned Haddock w Whole New Potatoes and Asparagus Cuts and Tip 002
For a side I heated up a can of Del Monte Whole New Potatoes, just emptied the contents of the can into a sauce pan and heated on medium heat until heated through. I also had a slice of Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.
