We met Anna - a lovely young Philippina, and Kevin, an Aussie (who are fixing up monster Irwin named Niye Keema) - at gatherings at Mangrove Bay Marina in Pohnpei. During one of our many chats, we learned of Anna's recipe for marinated green mangos. Green mangos, you say? Yes, green mangos. It's a salad or appetizer, not a desert. Luscious and very healthy. This has a nice texture, and an unusual and addictive flavor - tart, salty, spicy, garlic...bursting forth.
3 fresh green mangos
1 clove garlic, sliced very thin
~ 1 Tbs tamari (or soy sauce)
~ 1/2 tsp hot chili flakes
Peel and slice thinly, mangos. Combine all ingredients and toss. Chill if not served immediately.
