Sweet and Spicy Mango Shrimp

This is a SUPER FAST and delicious recipe, perfect for a busy weeknight. Start the rice cooking before you start the stir fry, and then it will all be done together. Even including the chopping, this can be on the table in 15 minutes! That's faster than pizza, and better for you.

The shrimp and mango are a great combination, and cooking the onion in coconut oil adds to the tropical flavors. You can use more or less chili sauce and more or fewer red pepper flakes to adjust the heat to your tastes. Personally, I didn't find this spicy at all using the measurements below. Serve over rice and with a steamed green vegetable, and you have a winner of a dinner in no time at all.

Heat coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once melted, add red onion and saute for about 5 minutes or until softened. Add garlic, soy sauce, lime juice, Thai chili sauce, red pepper and shrimp to the skillet and toss to combine. Cook for 2 minutes until warmed through. Add the mango, stir to incorporate and warm through. Serve over rice, garnished with green onions.
