This is one exception to the rule. 1 package baby spinach, washed and spun dry 2 cups large shrimp, steamed, peeled and deveined 1 large ripe mango (Champagne mango if you …
My uncle’s wife who’s from Pangasinan, Philippines, makes a similar dish, except that hers is more a veggie dish, with the emphasis on the snow peas. She also adds shelled peas and cashews to hers, a nice variation to this dish. Shrimp and Snow Pea Stir-Fry (Cha How Lang Tao Nung B’kong) adapted from a …

Mama asks what we want for lunch. (Mama is visiting from St. Louis and helping out in the cooking department because I still can’t cook much.) She asks Tops (my brother who’s also visiting from Philly for the weekend). Tops wants corned beef. We look for the tomato. Mama is convinced we had one more. …
