Asian Mango for its Nutritional Value and Cooking Versatility

Asian Mango for its Nutritional Value and Cooking Versatility

In this video, I talk about the nutritional value and cooking versatility of the Asian mango.

I find that the Asian mango is a little sweeter and tastier than the western one, and it is one of my favorite fruits because it is so versatile.  It can be used for both sweet and savory dishes, like mango pudding or coconut mango rice.  In this video, I talk about the nutritional value and cooking versatility of the Asian mango.

Here are three of my Asian mango recipes:
Coconut Mango Rice with Chicken Mango
Mango Coconut Rice Pudding
Pan Fried Halibut with Asian Mango Salsa

    I love mangos Moon. But here we only find the red ones. We can get the Asian pears now, and I love those so much I drool just thinking about them, but our mangos have to be ripened and while delicious, don’t look like the Asian ones. But oh, my, when they are on sale, I feast. I also freeze them for later when I want a smoothie and they cost too much for fresh.

    Hi Angie! I looove Asian pears, so juicy and crunchy! My supermarket usually carries Asian mangos, so I feel lucky, but they do not carry Asian pears, so I get those at the Korean market here.

    Mine carries the Asian pears, and one of our local orchards grows them, so I feel so lucky there. I wanted to get some on my last visit, but they were on the top shelf and there was no one around to help me, so I had to get regular red ones, which are okay, but don’t have that wonderful crunch of the Asian pear. I guess I just haven’t met a fruit I don’t like.

    I also love Korean watermelons, much smaller and juicier than the Western kind.

    They don’t have those here either. We have “personal” watermelons, but they lack the sweetness of the large ones. I have seen an Asian market somewhere here and I think I’ll try to find it and see if they have any of the Korean fruit there. I would love to find them. Maybe save the seeds to grow under a grow light indoors next year after they have dried enough for planting.
