Bacon Wrapped Shrimp with Mango Green Chili Sauce

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.

Mango Green Chili Sauce

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.
