Mango sauce recipe
- 2lbs of ripe mangoes
- 1small onion
- 2 sweet red peppers
- 2tbls-1/4 cup ordinary white vinegar
- A little sugar if needed
- First, cut the mango into two long flat halves around the stone inside. Pull the two halves apart and discard the stone. Scoop out the flesh with a spoon and place into a blender.
- Chop the onion and sweet red peppers, and sauté over medium heat in about 1Tbls of vegetable oil. Sautee until the onions and peppers are soft, about ten minutes.
- Add these sautéed onions and peppers to the blender with the mango flesh and add your 2 Tbls of vinegar.
- Puree the mixture until smooth.
- Add 1/2 tsp of salt and taste. You want the sauce to be sweet and tart and savory, without being noticeably salty. If you think it is a little bland, add another pinch of salt, and if you think it is too sweet, add a little more vinegar. Most mangoes are sweet enough already, but if your sauce tastes too sour, you can mix in a little sugar to sweeten it up.
You're looking to balance sweet/sour/salty, and as all fruit is variable, any recipe that doesn't require you to taste as you go will not offer consistent results!
This sauce is healthy, vitamin packed and really tasty. Use it with simply grilled chicken breast or pork chops. It brings a taste of the tropics to your table!
Once you have this sauce on hand, you'll find yourself using it on all sorts of things. It even tastes great on vanilla ice cream!
