Thai Mango Coconut Dip

    Share

    This dip has great flavour hooks: sweet, spicy, salty. The coconut milk adds a tropical kick while fish sauce provides depth of flavour. Try serving with cooked shrimp or chicken strips.

    2 ripe mangoes, flesh removed
    1/4 cup (60 mL) coconut milk
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) Thai sweet chili sauce
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) fish sauce
    Juice of 1/2 lime
    2 tsp (10 mL) minced fresh ginger
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) red chili flakes or 1 crushed Thai red chili

    Place mango flesh in food processor along with the remaining ingredients. Blend until well combined, but still slightly chunky (if you over-blend, the mixture will become too saucy).

    Serves 6.
