The chilli and mango bowl recipe is straight from the Caribbean island of Guadalupe. It’s the first of Guadalupe’s cuisine I’ve had the chance to taste but if this dish is anything to go off, it won’t be the last. The recipe takes around 20 minutes to prepare and is best chilled for a further 30 minutes before eating.

Serves 4


3 ripe mangos, peeled and sliced

1 green apple, peeled, cored, and diced

1 fennel bulb, trimmed and finely chopped

2 tablespoons minced mint

1 red onion, finely chopped

1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

juice of 2 limes

1 tablespoon agave syrup

1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped

salt and freshly ground black pepper

To make 

Put the mangos, apple, fennel, mint, onion, and ginger into a large bowl. Sprinkle over the lime juice, add the agave syrup, and stir well to combine. Now sprinkle over the jalapeños and season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.
