LaLa: no you definately don't eat the skin. I'm proud that you ran out and tried something new!

Oh, I've never eaten the skin, I think of it sort of like a banana peel and not worth eating. Anyone else, have you eaten the skin?
LaLaLaurie06 LaLaLaurie06 10 years
okay! i just had one! it took me awhile to get into it but they aren't bad! are you supposed to eat the skin? it was kind of tough and nasty.

lms - i agree, peaches don't taste like mangoes (although like susanec said, you could try a substitution) and the texture is definitely different. however, i think for someone who hasn't tried them before, i'd say they're more like a peach than other common fruits (apples, oranges, pears, bananas, etc.).

Mango....well I dunno about the zucchini part, I'm still a kid that likes to cringe at paprikas and things like that so...but it sure does look tasty....

While I think you actually could do this with peaches with a few substitutions, I don't think the two fruits taste anything alike (nor do they have the same texture). I'm not a huge mango fan, it's sort of hit or miss for me but I do like peaches consistantly.

I don't think mangoes taste anything like peaches nor would I say the texture is similar. I am from the Islands and I grew up eating them. I find a lot of times that the ones in the grocery stores do not have the best flavors. They taste the best when they rippen on the tree. However, they obviously aren't available everywhere in that form. Sometimes they have frozen cubed mangos in the section next to the strawberries, etc.

Sure, I dont see why you couldnt make it with shrimp if you adjust the cooking times accordingly. Let me know how it tastes!

The texture is a little bit like a peach, but a bit more fibrous. but they're great, definitely do give them a try!
LaLaLaurie06 LaLaLaurie06 10 years
ha ha Okay! Okay! I'll go get a mango tonight at the grocery store. One thing, though, do they have a texture like a peach? Because I hate peaches...

Mangos are in season during the summer usually from May unto September. You can substitute a mango jam or marmalade like crispet1 suggested or make your own mango chutney or buy it.

Idk if a mango marmalade or preserve would be a good substitute or not...

Mangos are pretty diverse in the flavor spectrum. They are sweet, but they can be a bit tart and pine-y sometimes. I think theyre in season now...yeah, I would say they are available most places. And to cut them, I take a knife from end to end (kinda what it looks like when you have and almond), but make the incision a bit above the midline, since there is a very solid, oval pit in the center of the fruit. I LOVE MANGO!
