Panko Shrimp with Coconut Rice and Spicy Mango Salsa

When the Food Network Show Food Truck Road Trip was here a couple weeks ago I met the crew of the Mobile Moo Shu Truck and tried one of their dishes at the Elimination segment of the Show. A BulgoGi Taco. It was good. On their Facebook Page I saw an Image of a dish described as "Panko crusted shrimp, garlic coconut cream sauce, spicy mint and basil mango salsa, served on a bed of rice!" So I decided to take that as an inspiration and create something similar.

Blackened Cherry Chicken Tacos

When Season 9 of Food Network's Food Truck Road Trip stopped in Phoenix out at Rawhide I went out to the Elimination Segment where a friend of mine was working as the Rattlesnake Wrangler. Meet the cast on three of the Trucks, Mobile Moo Shu, New England Grill and Chop's Shop and I got to taste a Bulgogi Taco from Mobile Moo Shu and a Shrimp and Elote Quesadilla from Chop's Shop. Tyler Florence talked about a dish that Chop's Shop did that sounded really good but they had sold out of that one during the day. I asked if they could send me the recipe. Bryan the Chef on the Truck sent me the ingredient list (no measurements obviously) and some basic preparation instructions. The following is my take on his dish.
