Shrimp dumplings in mango sauce

Ok recipe time :)

Shrimp dumplings in mango sauce

served with string beans and garlic bread

thai shrimp gyoza: bag of frozen dumplings ( i got mine at trader joe's - this works with any kinda frozen dumpling, shout out to you -itarians)

1 ripe mango

1 cup butternut squash soup

quarter cup pinot grigio

1 bouillion cube

half a big yellow onion

4 cloves garlic

olive oil

plum pomegranate jam (or cherry would work)

fresh black pepper

1 bunch of cilantro (maybe cuts coarsely down to 1 cup (without most of the stems)

Ok so it goes like this, put three shots of olive oil in a skillet with all the garlic cut up, get it nice and hot, toss in the dumplings while they're still not entirely defrosted, brown the outsides kinda well, toasted brown wins and remove

next toss in to the hot garlic butter half an onion cut up. When you cut it in half go from north to south pole and when you slice it go in along the longitude lines toward the core, so you have kinda grass blade shaped ribbons, fry them til they soften a little but you want them aldente so don't go crazy, remove and set aside with the dumplings.

toss in to the garlicy buttery pan half a cup of butternut squash soup, 2 thirds a cup apple sauce, two or three tablespoons of jam, a crumbled bouillion cube, pepper, three shots of pinot grigio. let simmer about 10 minutes.

cut up a mango into bite sized pieces toss in the sauce, sautee five minutes, add half the cilantro, sautee five minutes

reunite with the onions and dumplings, get it all hot
