Shrimp and Mango Limon - Mexican Stirfry Style
By Drew Beechum

Filling in as the emergency, temporary Burgermeister this is one of the dinner dishes that Drew whipped up for the Mayfaire. Since he's always making stir-fries, why not do it with a Mexican twist to fit the theme of the Mayfaire dinner? Drew did a triple size batch of this in his big wok and turkey fryer burner at the very last minute. As with all stir-fries, the key is getting things prepped before you start the cooking process, no time to chop the onions, ok?

Yield: A lot of servings
2 shotsTequila
3Lemons, juiced
5 ozMango Gelatin (Goya is the brand I use - stuff looks like a mango flavored jello brick), cubed
2 headsRoasted Garlic (trim the tops, drizzle with olive oil, wrap in foil and roast at 350 for an hour, squeeze)
2 mediumRed Onion, frenched (sliced into thin wedges)
1 tspCumin
1 tspChile Powder
2 lbsShrimp, peeled
2Mangos, diced
1.5 cupsFava Beans, blanched and peeled of their inner coats (optional)
4Green Onions, roughly chopped
1/3 bunchCilantro, roughly chopped
Salt and pepper to tase
Lime wedges, if desired


In a saucepan (or in Drew's case, a metal bowl over the turkey burner), combine the tequlia, lemon juice and mango gelatin cubes and place over low heat. Whisk frequently until the gelatin completely dissolves. Set aside to cool.

Add several tablespoons of vegetable oil to a hot pan (at the fest Drew used a big wok), add the garlic and onions. Stir briskly to cover with oil and then add the spices.

Once the aroma of the cumin and chile powder bloom, toss in the shrimp. Work them quickly in the pan.

When the shrimp start turning pink, add the mangos and fava beans (if using) and keep tossing.

Just before the shrimp are cooked (and it happens quickly! Don't over cook!), add the green onions and then the Lemon/Mango sauce.
