Cooking instructions

1. Peel the mango, remove the core and cut into 16 small cubes.

2. Shell the shrimp, keeping only the tail.

3. In a large skillet, heat the oil.  Add pepper, heat until the mixture becomes fragrant. Then add the garlic clove in half the shrimp.  Make color for ten minutes, stirring  regularly.  When the shrimp are cooked, add the grated ginger and sea salt; stir for 2 minutes.  Let it cool.
