THAI SHRIMP with MANGO COCONUT SAUCE

THAI SHRIMP with MANGO COCONUT SAUCE

This is a happy Happy Hour in the making.  Holiday season inspired and super easy to prepare…and I can now guarantee they are taste-tester approved.

It’s fun presenting these as little individual servings….mango sauce served up in shot glassses or little port glasses.

Let your guests grab a few extra shrimp on individual plates.

So good!  So easy!  I’m now wishing I had made more.
