Corn and Mango Salad Recipe with Sous Vide Shrimp
Sous vide shrimp is always plump and juicy, with none of the rubberiness you can find in the pan fried version. Combining the shrimp with a sweet, spicy, and bold salad like this one pumps up the flavor level a ton. The sweet mango and corn combines with the jalapenos for bright bursts of flavor. You can use more or less jalapenos, depending on how spicy you like your food.
It would also be great with a white fish like cod, swordfish, or grouper. Even chicken breasts would go well with it.
