Quick Notes

Chic Tip:

For a chicer presentation when serving, spread an even amount of red cabbage onto the bottom of each tortilla, top with an even amount of fillet portions, and spread an even amount of mango salsa on top of each. Fold filled tortillas and place together in a serving dish with limes places around to hold them in place.

Healthy Tip:

Because mangos are cooling, they are great thirst quenchers.
