Calypso Shrimp recipe

“Calypso” is the best way to describe this dish: it’s like a tangy dance of island flavors, colors, and textures. Tropical mango and citrus make for a delicious summer salsa atop marinated shrimp. A delightful dish on a hot day. Makes 4 servings.


Bean Salsa
1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 medium mango, peeled and chopped (about 1 cup)
1 small red bell pepper, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
2 to 3 medium sliced green onions (about 1/4 cup)
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel

1 tablespoon orange juice
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel
1 1/2 teaspoons of chopped fresh thyme OR 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
3/4 pound raw medium shrimp, peeled and deveined


  1. Prepare the bean salsa: combine all ingredients in large mixing bowl; toss to combine.

  2. Prepare the shrimp: mix the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl.

  3. Spray a 10-inch nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray; heat over medium-high. Add the shrimp mixture and cook, turning shrimp once, until pink.

  4. Divide the salsa among 4 serving plates and arrange shrimp mixture atop.

Enjoy this dish as lunch by serving alongside a light grain such as warm rice. For dinner, bulk up the plate by making these into tacos—just add sour cream, guacamole, and hot sauce, and serve inside grilled corn tortillas. Serve with a wine that’s crisp and slightly fruity, such as Riesling or Viognier.
