Mmmango! soaps are in the mold and will be ready for the start of markets and just in time for summer!  This popular seasonal soap is very tropical, fruity and sweet.  

I LOVE to eat Mangos.  Mango ice cream, Mango smoothies, Mango margaritas, Mango salsa, Mango milkshakes, Mango in salad, Mango plain and on it's own!   Using this Mmmango soap makes me want to eat Mango!  I have included below one of my favorite Mango recipes.  Enjoy!

Coconut Shrimp with Mango Ginger Sauce


Tangy Mango Sauce
1 large rip mango, peeled and pitted
2 T. rice vinegar
2 T. honey
1 t. grated fresh ginger

Coconut Rice
1 lb. large raw, tail on shrimp, peeled and de-veined
1/3 C. honey
2 t. soy sauce
2 t. hot chili oil
2 C. flaked coconut

For the sauce:
Puree mango, vinegar, honey and ginger in a blender or food processor; set aside. 
For the shrimp:
 Preheat oven to 400°F and spray a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. 
Rinse shrimp and pat very dry between paper towels. 
In a medium bowl stir together honey, soy sauce and chili oil. Dip shrimp in mixture then roll in coconut, pressing so that it sticks to the shrimp; place on baking sheet and sprinkle with some of the excess coconut. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until shrimp is firm and coconut is golden brown. Carefully remove from baking sheet with a spatula to a platter. 
Serve mango sauce on the side for dipping. 
Makes 4 main dish or 8 appetizer servings.
