Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Thinly slice the bottom 4 inches of the stalk of lemongrass. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a medium saucepan. Add the garlic, shallot, lemongrass and ginger and cook over low heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the shrimp shells and cook, stirring, until bright pink, about 3 minutes. Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring until glossy, about 2 minutes. Add the white wine and bring to a boil. Add the water and simmer over low heat for 30 minutes. Remove the shrimp stock from the heat and let stand for 10 minutes.

  • Strain the stock, pressing hard on the solids. Return the stock to the saucepan and boil until reduced to 1/3 cup, about 20 minutes; let cool. Whisk in the lime juice and the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil and season with salt and pepper.

  • Season the shrimp with salt, pepper and cayenne and steam until just opaque throughout, 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Stir the tarragon into the dressing. In a large bowl, toss the mangoes with 1/4 cup of the dressing and mound on plates. Top with the shrimp, drizzle on the remaining 1/4 cup of dressing and serve.
