What should I do with Mangoes?

I've got a bunch of them, which have been ripening for about a week. I like just slicing and eating them plain, but am also looking for other ideas. Post your best mango recipes!

      This looks good. I'm sure you could add some hot peppers for spice too; have you tried that?

        Have not made it with hot peppers, but I'm sure it would be good.

    2. My neighbor put this together the other day - it was delicious: halibut, caramelized onions, coconut milk, mango pieces & cilantro....delicious and aesthetically pleasing :)

      1. How about a mango licuado (smoothie)?! Mmmm. Add some papaya or banana.

        In Colombia (and elsewhere in Latin America), women sell mangos sliced up in baggies, and sprinkle them with salt, and people stroll around eating them just as you are.

        I also like julienned mango in a wrap or a chicken salad, maybe something like this:

          Green "Indian" mangoes here in Colombia, similar to the Indian mango slices with fermented shrimp paste (bagoong) in the Philippines.

          As to the OP: mango pie (comes out like peach pie).

        2. I love to add mango to milkshakes! Somehow, it tastes like a dreamsicle.

          1. don't know if you read Spanish, but the photo is pretty much self-explanatory (it looks marvelous to me). Mango in a savory tapas dish- with shrimp, goat cheese, pancetta...

              Well, I don't read much Spanish, but I think I can put enough together... Looks good. Thanks.
