Steamed Prawns Glazed With Home Made Mango - Habanero Sauce

Ingredients for Prawn/Shrimp

Prawn/Shrimp – 1 cup (deveined and shelled)
Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
Red chilli powder – ½ tsp
Coriander powder – ½ tsp
Cumin Powder – ¼  tsp
Fresh yogurt – 2 tbs
Lemon Juice – 2 tbs
Salt to taste


Mix all the above ingredients and marinate overnight in refrigerator.  Then place each piece of shrimp in a steaming plate separately and steam in pressure cooker or electric rice cooker or in a steamer till you get a whistles or for 10 minutes. Once steamed, set aside.

Ingredients for Mango – Habanero sauce:

Cebu Mangoes -3
Habanero peppers – 1 or 2 (depending on how much spice you want)
Minced Ginger – 2”
Lemon Juice – ½ cup
Salt to taste
Honey to taste


Roast the peppers over a flame or in a skillet set over medium heat until the skin blisters and blackens a bit and it softens. Remove from heat. Remove skin and seed and put mango into blender. Add peppers, ginger, and lime juice to the blender. Combine the ingredients until smooth. Pour into a medium saucepan, cover, and set over medium-low heat. Allow to simmer, but be careful because mango spatters. Adjust with honey if too spicy and adjust with red chilli powder if too sweet or with vinegar more sourness. 


Put the shrimps/prawns in a mixing bowl and add the desired quantity of sauce. Mix well and serve. Store rest of the sauce in refrigerator for up to two weeks.
