Expert Tips

  • Cutting your own cabbage into thin slices for the slaw will give you an ultra-crunchy texture, but preshredded cabbage, sold in bags for coleslaw, will also work well.
  • Fresh and frozen shrimp are sold by a descriptive size name, such as "jumbo" or "large," and by “count,” or number per pound. The larger the shrimp, the lower the count. Size and count vary throughout the United States.
  • Want to dice a mango like a pro? First, stand the mango stem-end down, and hold in place. Look for two wide sides or “cheeks.” Starting at top, place knife about 1/4 inch from widest center line and cut down through mango, cutting around flat seed in center of fruit. Repeat with opposite remaining wide side. Cut flesh of wide sides by slicing them in a cross-hatch pattern, making sure not to cut through to skin. To remove mango pieces, push skin inside out so cut mango pieces fan out, then cut pieces free from skin. Cut two remaining narrow sides from pit by cutting around pit. Peel and cut mango pieces.
