Mango sauce usually includes cilantro.
Mango sauce is certainly gaining attention and popularity. Some people have enjoyed it for years, but others are new to the world of this fruit sauce. It may seem strange if you haven’t tried it yet. Surprisingly, the combination of juicy, sweet mangoes with things like chili peppers, onions and a little lemon juice can be refreshing and an excellent topper for many different types of meat.
You will find many variations of mango sauce in recipes online and in cookbooks. There are also some pre-made versions that you can buy in stores if you want to try before making your own. If you love mangoes, however, it’s worth making your own fresh sauce. This can be done in a few minutes.
To serve three to four people, chop two mangoes, a small red or red onion, and a sweet to super hot pepper, depending on how spicy you like the sauce. If you want the flavor of pepper without too much heat, remove the seeds from the pepper. Chop up some mint leaves and some coriander leaves. Combine the ingredients and cover with the juice of a lime or lemon. You can also add a little sugar if you want to make the sauce sweeter, and you may notice some varied additions in individual recipes like cucumber, garlic, or different spices to add extra dimension to the flavor or texture.
If you allow the mango sauce to sit for a few hours before serving, the flavor will intensify. You can also serve it right after you’ve made it if you’re in a hurry. There are many things you can use this sauce for.
Some mango sauce recipes include tomatoes.
A popular use of mango sauce is in fish tacos. In fact, any type of white or pale fish can be excellent when paired with mango. Parsley will also make an excellent accompaniment to cooked chicken, beef or pork. Some people like to serve the salsa as a side of cooked hams like spiral sliced hams. A little mango sauce on top of a grilled pork chop will also make the entrée very tasty.
You can substitute mango sauce for other types of sauce. It pairs well with corn flavors and can be eaten with tortilla chips. It’s also a great topping for vegetarian dishes like black beans and corn.
Garlic is sometimes used as a seasoning to make mango sauce.
Some recipes recommend adding tomatoes, and if the tomatoes are sweet, this can be a nice contrast. Other recipes suggest that certain yellow or orange fruits, such as peaches, can be substituted for mangoes. Peaches may be a little easier to slice and work with and may be more commonly available in your area. You can also use thawed and pre-frozen mangoes, which means you eliminate the hassle of peeling, which can reduce prep time.
