Shrimp with Mango

This is another 'I don't want to go to the grocery store' meal. And it also sparked my boyfriend, Stephen's coworker to say in her adorable southern accent, "He is so spoiled." I didn't have to work on Friday, so Stephen asked me to make him lunch for work. So I looked through the fridge and cabinets to make something for my spoiled boy.

Shrimp with Mango
1 lb. shrimp
1 c. diced mango
1/2 onion, diced
2 T. oil
1 T. honey
2 t. soy sauce
2 t. red curry paste
1 t. fish sauce
1/2 c. cashews

Marinade shrimp with oil, honey, soy sauce, red curry paste and fish sauce for 10 minutes. Saute diced onion for 5 - 6 minutes. Add shrimp to the skillet, reserving marinade. Once shrimp is cooked through, add mango and cook for 3 minutes. Remove shrimp, mango and onion. Add marinade and let it simmer for 7-8 minutes, until is reduced and thickened. Add shrimp, mango and onion back to skillet, mix together and let shrimp warm back up. Serve with coconut rice.

Coconut rice
1 can coconut milk
1 2/3 c. instant rice
4 scallions, chopped
Bring coconut milk to boil. Season with salt and stir in rice and scallions. Cover and let sit until liquid is absorbed.
