Thai cocktail shrimp

Combine 1/2 tsp lime zest and 2 tbsp lime juice with 1 tsp rice vinegar, 1/2 tsp fish sauce and 1/4 tsp hot chili-garlic sauce in a large bowl. Set aside.

Heat a large frying pan over medium-high. Add 2 tsp canola oil, then 454-g package thawed peeled raw shrimp and 2 tsp brown sugar. Cook, stirring frequently, until shrimp is pinkish-brown, about 2 min per side. Transfer to bowl with dressing. Add 1/4 cup chopped cilantro. Toss to coat and serve. Serves 6.

Mango sunrise

Fill a tulip glass with ice. Pour in 3 tbsp tequila, then 2/3 cup mango juice. Pour 1 tbsp grenadine into the centre of glass so it sinks to the bottom. Swirl gently to mix slightly. Garnish with a lime wedge. Makes 1.
