A mango infused seafood soup – an explosion for your taste buds.

INGREDIENTS: Seafood Water

4 ripe Tommy Atkins mangoes
1 large onion, diced
1 large red onion, diced
1 celery stalk, chopped
4 oz (110 g) red snapper fillet
1 cup shrimp shells from peeled shrimp
4 tbsp turmeric
Pat of butter
18 scallops
3 dozen local cockles or green shell mussels
2 tbsp cilantro (coriander), chopped
1 tsp thyme, chopped
18 large shrimp, peeled, tail-on
18 calamari (squid) rings

INGREDIENTS: Pepper Sticks

2 cups (240 g) flour
1/4 cup (60 ml) grated Parmesan
1⁄4 cup (60 ml) olive oil
4 tbsp ground black pepper
1⁄4 cup (60 ml) water
Salt to taste

METHOD: Mango Seafood Water

Wash and peel the mangoes and roughly cut the flesh off the seeds. Place in a large saucepan with skin and seeds. Cover with water and add diced onion, celery, snapper fillet, shrimp shells and turmeric. Simmer over medium heat until reduced by half. Cool slightly and remove mango seeds and skin, leaving the cooked mango and all other ingredients. Pour into a blender with a pat of butter. Blend until smooth and strain liquid through a fine sieve. In a large saucepan, add the mango liquid to the scallops, cockles/green shell muscles, shrimp and calamari. Add the cilantro and thyme. Simmer until shells are open and seafood is cooked. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.

METHOD: Pepper Sticks

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, Parmesan, oil and black pepper and make a well in centre of the mixture. Add water and knead into a firm dough. Roll out the dough and cut into strips. Place on a non-stick cookie sheet and bake in a preheated oven until golden brown.

To Serve

Spoon the seafood water into large bowls and serve with pepper sticks.
