Dessert of the gods

If mango is the fruit of the gods, then this surely has to be the dessert of the gods.


It’s simple yet sophisticated, and very tasty! The recipe comes from an Italian friend of a friend and it’s dead easy:

Take one ripe mango. Slice thinly. I do this with a filleting knife, it separates the mango flesh from its skin and pit with a minimum of waste and makes nice thin slices.

Squeeze the juice of one lime over the mango slices, and marinate in the fridge for as long as you can, several hours at least.

Serve the mango in a bowl topped with a spoonful of ricotta cheese and a handful of crushed Amaretti biscuits.
