With New Year celebrations, comes lots of BBQs and festivities with family and friends, which is why we've seen mangoes featured in many recipes this past week.
Good Food shared a recipe for barbecue chicken salad with grilled mangoes and Thai dressing, along with recipes for one-bowl meals such as crunchy cauliflower salad with mango lime and jalapeno dressing. A delicious recipe for prawn and mango salad was posted to NewsMail, The Morning Bulletin, The Fraser Coast Chronicle, The Daily Mercury, The Northern Star, The Gladstone Observer and seven more publications in Australian Regional Media. PopSugar also posted a recipe for mimosa using mango puree, whilst one of Australia's top food bloggers, Not Quite Nigella, gave her tips for beautiful party fruit platters with mangoes.
With regards to the industry, ABC Radio's NT Country Hour and online news spoke to grower, Ian Quinn of Tou's Garden, regarding the impact of labour shortages on this season's harvest, whilst News Corp's major titles such as The Herald Sun, The Daily Telegraph, The Gold Coast Bulletin, The Courier Mail and Perth Now shared an article on the positive impact of the new cuts to trade tariffs.
In social media, the chicken and mango skewer recipe video has now reached over 100,000 people since it was posted just before Christmas, whilst our recent harvest and 'mango memories' tiles have already reached a combined 60,000 people!
