Mango crab ... Siri na manga

This wonderful dish I first tried at the restaurant of the Hotel Costa Norte in Florianopolis. I could not resist and tried to do it myself, after researching some recipes on the Internet. And well, it turned out quite good! If you want to try this exotic and very tasty dish, there goes the recipe! It's a great idea as an entry for a dinner with seafood.
Ingredients (for 4 servings)
* 400g of crab meat;
* 2 mangoes on point (can not be too hard);
* 2 Italian-style tomatoes (medium);
* 1/2 small onion;
* 3 / 4 of a bottle of curd cheese;
* 1 serving (cup of rum) of cognac (brandy);
* 1 stalk of celery;
* Grated Parmesan cheese;
* Salt, black pepper and nutmeg to taste;
How to prepare
Cut the onion and chopped tomatoes and set aside. Grate the celery stalk in a grater and set aside. Cut the mangoes in half, lengthwise, into 2 halves. Do this carefully so as not to destroy the shell. From the piece that you got the lump, you remove it gently with a knife. Remove much of the pulp of the two halves and separate it. The idea is that the two halves of the sleeve remain as they were two shells. Turn the oven at high temperature. Fry the chopped onion in olive oil. When gilding and sticking in the pan, put a bit of cognac to come unglued. Add the tomatoes and saute a little more. Then add the grated celery and shredded crabmeat. Let the fire high, and when the crab is sticking in the pan, add the rest of the cognac. Then add the curd cheese and dissolve it, forming a cream. Flavour with pepper, salt and nutmeg, go slowly giving the flavor and adding more if necessary. Finally, add to this mixture the mango pulp cut into cubes. Try again and see if it needs more salt. When the flavor is cool, put this filling inside the mango shells you manufactured. On top, put grated cheese and bake until it´s golden brown colored.
Bon appetit!
