cast count down: 2 1/2 weeks
I may be overusing my arm, so need to stop cooking again for a couple of days, This is a dish I made Dave last Valentines Day and apparently never got around to posting. It's a good thing I jotted down some notes back then!
The mango plays so nice with the green chilies, the bacon and the polenta; and if you read this blog often- you know what a fan of polenta I am!. Honestly- wrap anything in bacon and it's gonna be good!
Bacon wrapped shrimp on polenta with mango-green chili sauce.
Start the polenta and the sauce first, then cook the shrimp.
Creamy Polenta, as previously prepared.
Fresh large shrimp, plan at least 4 per person
Wrap each piece in a bacon slice (cut the slice of bacon in half first, and secure with a toothpick if needed)
fry or bake until the bacon is crispy and the shrimp is pink.
Sautee in olive oil
¼ cup white onions, diced
Add 1 small can of green chilis, chopped, reserve juice
Continue to sautee and add
½ mango, diced
Add reserved green chili juice, 2 tablespoons of lime juice and ½ cup white wine.
Simmer 5 minutes, blend with an immersion blender. Season with salt and pepper.
To plate: place a spoonful of polenta in the middle of a plate or shallow bowl. Add 2 pieces of bacon wrapped shrimp and top with mango sauce and fresh parsley.
