    So this is a nother seafood recipe I'm trying (and I don't really like fish). The slaw was good. I couldn't give it to my toddler because of the peppers, it was a little spicy for me but well balanced with the fruit (I would suggest adding a little more fruit and a little less cabbage). I mistakenly used some tilapia I already had (which I don't like). I think next time I'm going to grill some mahi mahi to try instead or use shrimp (because I like shrimp). I think if the fish were a little more crispy I would have liked the texture better. I think if you like fish you would really enjoy this recipe. I will keep the slaw around for sure!  -  30 Jul 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used the slaw recipe to make chicken tacos. Didn't have mangos or pineapple so added more sugar and red bell pepper. Had a good acidic bite which was really good.  -  09 Jul 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
