  • 3 firm mangoes
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • Fresh mint sprigs for garnish
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 14 thin slices ginger, crushed


Combine the sugar, water, and ginger in a saucepan. Cook over high heat until the sugar is dissolved, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and let stand until cool. Strain, discarding the ginger.

Peel the mangos. Stand a mango up and slice down each side of the pit to have 2 large slices. Repeat with the remaining mangos. Brush the slices with butter.

Grill over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until slightly charred, turning frequently and brushing with butter as needed.

Place in a large bowl. Pour the ginger syrup over the mangos and toss gently to cover. Let stand, covered, for 1 hour.

Place a scoop of coconut ice cream in each of 6 dessert bowls. Spoon the mangos and syrup over the gelato and garnish with mint sprigs.

Additional Tips

Caramel sauce would work as the syrup too.
