Mango Salsa

The sweet and spicy flavors of this delightful salsa are a great accompaniment to the grilled shrimp.  This salsa is also very wine friendly.  The creamy, tropical fruit flavored chardonnay goes great with the grilled shrimp and beautifully with this salsa. What a match.  I love this recipe. You must try it!!! 

2 tablespoons    Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 ½ cups            diced onion
2 teaspoons        peeled, minced fresh ginger
1 ½ teaspoons    minced garlic
2                         ripe mangos, peeled, seeded, and small-diced
1/3 cup               orange juice
2 teaspoons         light brown sugar
1 teaspoon           kosher salt
½ teaspoon          freshly ground black pepper
1 to 2 teaspoons  minced fresh jalapeno pepper (1 pepper)
2 teaspoons         minced fresh mint leaves

Sauté the onions and the ginger in the olive oil I a large sauté pan over medium-low heat for 10 minutes or until the onions are translucent.  Add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Add the mangos and reduce the heat to low for another 10 minutes.  Add the orange juice, brown sugar, salt, black ppepper, and jalapenos and cook for 10 more minutes until the orange juice is reduced.  Stir occasionally.

Remove from the heat and add the mint.  Serve warm, at room temperature, or chilled.
