My favorite part in this dessert is the lemon tartlet, like it very much… I picked mango as the topping just because I have it ready in the kitchen, ripe and sweet. I could actually use berries topping, but I’d need to thaw them first while the mangoes were lining up on the counter, just need to be peeled and diced. I bought 2 boxes of half ripe mango last time went to grocery shopping, by the day I made this recipe they were all ripe, my little one just loves it.

This menu is perfect for my mango craving,… well, I feel like I didn’t get to eat enough mango when I was visiting Indonesia last time. Also perfect for summer since I am so ready to say goodbye to this winter. Enjoy!
1. Prepare: 1 big mango ( I prefer the half ripe as it’s firm enough for crunchiness yet not too sour) thinly sliced, yields about 2C. 6-8 cherry tomatoes, halved. 1/4C roasted peanut, chopped. 2tbs dried shrimp, rinsed. 1/4 tsp shrimp paste. juice from 1/2 lime. 2tbs fish sauce. 1/4C cane sugar, melted with 2tbs water added. 1 clove of garlic. some sliced thai chilles.
2. Using a mortar and pestle, ground/ bash garlic, dried shrimp, shrimp paste, and then half of the roasted peanuts at the last. Add Lime juice, fish sauce and melted cane sugar. This will be the dressing.
3. On the small bowl, mix the mango, tomatoes, and chillies, then put the dressing and mix well.
