Spicy Shrimp Stack with Mango Salsa

I’m crazy, I know, but I’ve really been trying to be less wasteful when it comes to my food photography these days so I’ve been careful to eat my blog recipes right away. I spend WAYYYYYY too much money on groceries. Seriously to the point where I could be alone for the week and still spend like $100 on food. I mean, when you work 12 hour days from home and then are too exhausted to go out anywhere, great home cooking can be a nice sanctuary – it’s become a way to relax and then enjoy the fruit of my labours. 😀

  • In a 1 or 2 cup measuring cup (I used a 2 cup measuring cup and it was the perfect size for dinner), spoon in mango salsa until a there is a thin layer, then spread half of the avocado mixture overtop. Layer with shrimp, then strips of nori, then sticky rice.
  • Press down hard, then trace with a knife all the way around the measuring cup to loosen mixture. Dump onto a plate, careful to make sure mixture remains in tact.
  • Top mango salsa with crumbled wonton or tortilla strips, then drizzle bang bang sauce overtop using a plastic bag with a tiny hole cut out in a corner. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve with fresh limes and soy sauce.
