When I recently visited Park City, Utah’s Wasatch Brew Pub as part of Park City Food Tours, I sampled Beer Battered Shrimp with a Mango Dipping Sauce that was memorable—light and crispy shrimp accented with a sweet and spicy dipping sauce. Owner Stu Brown generously shared the recipe. – Yvette Cardozo, RFT Ski & Dive Editor
