A Real Treat For Mango Lovers

CHEF’S TABLE

Marco Island enjoys the climate to grow the most wonderful fruit bearing trees…Mango’s, Lemons, Limes and Grapefruits. For those of us fortunate to have them growing in our own yards, sometimes it becomes necessary to find friends and neighbors to share the fruit. As, a Chef, I am always looking for ways to share these fruits in delicious recipes. One such recipe, Green Mango Pie, is such a delight, because I don’t have to wait for the fruit to fully ripen.

Green Mango Pie

Green Mango Pie

4 cups sliced

green Mango’s, peeled

1 1/2 cups sugar

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 lb salted butter

2 pastry shells

Parboil your peeled and sliced Mango’s until they are limber.  Arrange Mango slices in a circular form in pastry shell. Blend sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon and sprinkle over Mangos.  Dot with butter and cover with second pie sheet. Make 6-8 one inch slices into the crust with a knife. Bake 45 minutes in 350 degree oven till golden. Serve hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

So remember next year when your Mango tree is filling up with fruit….you don’t have to wait to enjoy their deliciousness.

Chef Annie and daughter Lauren began their journey together at The Chefs Express in Olde Marco in 2004. After 6 years of developing strong customer relations and a solid name in the restaurant and catering business, they have moved to the forefront of Marco Islands’ service business at The Esplanade. The new venue called for a new name…thus Mangos Dockside Bistro at The Esplanade. Our family invites you to experience the best food, the best views, the best drinks…with THE MOST FUN!
