Ingredients
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 6 large slightly under-ripe mangoes, halved and pitted
  • 1/3 cup bourbon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans
  • 1/2 cup creme fraiche or sour cream, optional
Directions
  • Heat the grill to high.

  • Place a medium saucepan on the grates of the grill, add the butter, and brown sugar, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has melted and the mixture thickens slightly, about 5 minutes.

  • While the sauce is cooking, remove the mangoes from the peel and cut into diamond shapes. Place the diamonds onto serving plates.

  • Remove the pan with the sauce from the heat and add the bourbon. Using a long lit match, ignite the bourbon and allow the flames to subside. Stir in the cinnamon, salt and pecans. Top mangoes with the sauce and with a large dollop of creme fraiche, if using.
