Mango, Que Rico El Mango

(with apologies to Perez Prado)

Summertime brings fresh ripe mangoes at low prices to the produce markets.

Peel them with a sharp knife or vegetable peeler, cut the firm yet soft fruit.

Eat them as is, and let the juice run down your chin as you suck the last bit of goodness from the pit.

Sprinkle the slices with lime juice, sea salt, and chili powder or cayenne to highlight the flavor. You can use Tajín (ta-HEEN), a condiment with chili powder, dried lime and salt, which can be purchased at Mexican grocers.

Put fresh slices in a frosty Mango Lassi

Mix with barbecued shrimp for

or make Sticky Rice with Mango with sweet coconut milk for dessert.

However you enjoy it, you will agree, “¡Que rico es!”
