I was having a dinner gathering with a family who just moved back to the States. The wife’s profession in Hong Kong was a dietitian. She shared with me a little incident, how she requested one of her subordinates to prepare some diced mangos for some kids. Who knew, this subordinate diced the whole mango, with peels and all, just to save some time. Or better yet, he had no clue on how to easily diced a mango, without peels! And he even
First, place your mango vertically on a sturdy cutting board. Insert the knife to cut through the mango along with the flat side of the seed.
Do the same on the other side of the seed and you’ll ended up with 3 sections as shown in the picture above.
Next, score the flesh vertically and then horizontally without cutting through the skin.
Last but not least, use a spoon to scoop out the flesh and you've got diced mango, without peels!
Another way to diced up the mango is to spoon the whole section of the mango flesh out from the skin (see picture above).
Then, you can easily dice it up on the board. Super simple and easy, right? I hope no one serve little kids mango with peels in the future, edible or not. Or better yet, hope no one thinks it’s alright to serve mango to kids with peels! Thank you! Oh, and for the diced mango, I made a refreshing mango salsa. I’ll share the recipe with you in a future post. Stay tuned!
