Shrimp Cocktail and Company

On Saturday night, I decided to make my own version of the shrimp cocktail. The sauce is different - it's made with mango so it has a tangy, sweet vibe to it. I got the idea from watching the Food Network during the afternoon. It's a low budget and time efficient appetizer or snack. Before boiling the shrimp, I cut the side in half to remove the black vein. The sauce is made with mangos, red pepper, lime juice, garlic, a pinch of salt, and a pinch of sugar. I threw everything into the mixer and I chopped up green onions to top it off. You can put sriracha sauce on top with the green onions, but I'm not a fan of spicy so I omitted that.

Afterward, D and I watched a bit of the Lakers game (I'm trying to convert him into a Lakers fan) and then, Tower Heist with Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller. Grrrrreat movie and great snacks!
