Markus starts off by telling us he’s going to show us how to make an awesome tropical treat that could be an entire meal in itself or as a dessert. Either way, it’s amazingly delicious. First ingredient we start with is mangoes, Markus shows us champagne mangoes as those are his favorite, the texture is smoother than regular mangoes. The ingredient list for this recipe is mangoes, blueberries, mint, garlic, ginger, limes, and a pepper of your choice.
Cube the mangoes and add them to a bowl, add the blueberries, then you take the mint and shred it or chop it up, add the garlic chopped up or cubed, next will be the ginger. Markus warns that if you don’t chop ginger right you can get strings that almost resemble dental floss. A great tip on how to chop ginger to avoid getting these strings would be to slice it thinly and perpendicular to the growth of the ginger. Don’t cut it from the side but from where the ginger root came out of the ground. You then stack your ginger slices and cut from the side, once finished turn the slices and chop the other way so that you end up with cubes.
Markus says that this is also a great way to chop garlic. The last ingredient is the fresh lime juice. You simply halve a lime and squeeze over the fruit garlic and herb salad, be careful not to get any seeds in your mixture. Markus uses the juice of two limes but it’s completely to taste so you can add as much or as little as you’d like. When it comes to adding a pepper you can choose a serrano pepper which is mild or a habanero pepper for some kick. Finish everything off with sea salt, Markus likes to use a coarse Celtic sea salt.
You can start off light with no peppers and then gradually work to using them but Markus states it’s a party of flavors in your mouth that you’ve never had before.
