http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/shrimp_with_mango_basil.html From EatingWell: February/March 2005, The EatingWell Health in a Hurry Cookbook (2006) This one-pan stir-fry is an Indian feast of sweet shrimp, perfumy mangoes and spicy basil. It's guaranteed to evoke dinnertime oohs and ahhs. Carbs are a time-tested way to take the pop out of the heat, so make sure you have plenty of aromatic jasmine rice to go with this fiery dish. Use prepeeled shrimp to make preparation a breeze.
