In a large bowl, toss the shrimp with the olive oil, salt and red pepper flakes. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes.
Heat a large skillet (non-stick preferred) over medium-high heat. Add the balsamic and bring to a boil. Add the mini peppers, red onion and the contents of the bowl with the shrimp to the skillet; spread out the shrimp in a single layer. Cook shrimp for about 1 ½ to 2 minutes a side or until pink, opaque and curled.
Add the mango and stir to combine. Allow to cook about 1 minute more. Remove the pan from the heat. Serve the mixture over rice; garnish with chopped cilantro.
