For the mango slaw

Combine the diced Mr KP Mangoes, shredded red cabbage, sliced chilli and half the coriander in a salad bowl, and toss to combine. Cover and set aside until ready to serve.

In a small bowl, whisk together the orange zest, orange juice, lime juice and olive oil, then season to taste.

When ready to serve, pour the dressing over the slaw and toss until well combined. Garnish with the remaining coriander.


For the prawns

Toss the prawns in a bowl with the smoky paprika and salt. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over high heat.  Fry the prawns, turning once until cooked through (about 1 minute each side).  Remove from the heat and stir the lime juice through.

Heat tortilla according to instructions.

To assemble, place several prawns on a tortilla, and top with the mango slaw and a squeeze of lime.


Zest the orange before juicing!
