Our Resident “Foodies” Inspire Sweet New Dish

Our residents have great taste, and their input helps inspire some of our delicious dishes! After talking to some residents during dinner, Chef Kyle was asked to create a flavorful dish that featured shrimp — one of their favorite proteins. The result was Atlantic Shores Mango Curry Shrimp.

Curries are always packed with flavor, and Kyle toned down the spice/heat by adding fresh mango. When this sweet and savory dish debuted, it almost sold out of it on the first night. Try it for yourself, paired with a nice cold chardonnay.
