Richard Blais' Heart-Healthy Taco Night
A Heart-Healthy Family Dinner
This heart-healthy meal can be made for your family without the guilt.
For the salsa, stir the mango, tomato, onion, cumin, coriander, 1 ounce cilantro and vegetable juice in a medium bowl. Set the mango mixture aside.
For the tacos, stir the chicken, cheese, avocado, shallots, fish sauce and lime juice and zest in a large bowl. Divide the chicken mixture evenly among the tortillas, spooning the mixture down the center of each tortilla. Sprinkle evenly with the cilantro, mint and basil. Fold the tortillas around the filling. Serve the tacos with the mango salsa mixture.
For the sorbet, whisk the juice and syrup in a large bowl. While wearing gloves and goggles, pour a small amount of liquid nitrogen into the bowl and whisk while slowly adding the remaining liquid nitrogen until desired consistency. Allow any excess liquid nitrogen to "boil off" before serving the sorbet. (Can also be made in an ice cream freezer at home)
