Expert Tips

  • Want to speed up mango steak tacos? Buy prepared mango salsa, found in many stores, instead of making the salsa yourself. Both are delicious with this dish!
  • To dice mango, stand the mango, stem end down, and hold. Look for two wide sides or “cheeks.” Starting at the top, place knife about 1/4 inch from the widest center line, and cut down through mango, cutting around the flat seed in the center of the fruit. Repeat with opposite remaining wide side. Cut the flesh of wide sides by slicing them in a cross-hatch pattern, making sure not to cut through the skin. To remove mango pieces, push skin inside out, cut mango pieces fan out, and cut pieces from the skin. Cut two remaining narrow sides from the pit by cutting around the pit. Peel and cut mango pieces.
  • For a fresher, crunchier flavor, add diced red bell pepper to the salsa.
