Chief taster’s tacos filled with mangos, prawns and other goodies

We first tried these tacos in a particularly bright period between lockdowns. It was a bright period literally – sunny and warm; and it was bright too, from the point of view of the soul – our close family was with us after a long absence, our business and everyone in it still surviving.

But we don’t make this dish as often as we do now just because of its happy associations. As the Chief Taster comments, “it’s a bit different, it’s quick to do, it tastes wonderful…”.

It makes an excellent lunch.

For a sort of salady version of this try La Salade 632, Mango and Prawn Salad.

Music to listen to as you make this

It has to be Underneath The Mango Tree, sung in the early James Bond film, Dr No.
