Focusing on the big picture of Spicy Shrimp Stacks with Mango Salsa may intimidate you. Here’s a bit of reassurance: Go-For-It! Basically, it’s a matter of doing the familiar – boiling (rice), chopping, spreading, stirring, mixing, layering, stacking and drizzling. So, how difficult can that be?

Change It Up

Consider the recipe for Spicy Shrimp Stacks with Mango Salsa your pattern for stack food. Once you’ve mastered this recipe, reimagine it using different ingredients. For example, how about changing the dry sticky rice ingredient to Quinoa, Basmati or Brown rice?

Experiment with different types of fish, such as crab or scallops.

Not a fan of rice grains? Just put cauliflower florets in the blender and grind until it’s a similar texture of rice. Cook in microwave about 2-3 minutes to soften.

Final Thought

Better watch out or before you can say alakazam, you’ll get hopelessly addicted to stack food.
