  1. For the meal photographed at the top, I used pork chops. However you can use whatever protein you fancy. Chicken also works great, as does tempeh, tofu, or beans if you are trying to cut down how much meat you eat. I like to cut whichever protein I'm using into bite size chunks. I then add this to a container and add all of the marinade ingredients. Let this sit for as long as possible. Prepare the day before if you have time!

  2. Next prepare the mango salsa. The full recipe is linked above but in short all you need to do is finely dice all the ingredients (mango, watermelon, pepper, shallot, onion, add some salt and lime juice, and let it sit. Yum.

  3. Next do the quick pickled onions. Slice the onions as finely as possible and squeeze over the lime juice. Give them a mix and let them sit.

  4. Finally the guac. Scoop out the avocado flesh, give it a mash, add the other ingredients and mix. You could also add shallots, peppers, etc to suit your taste.

  5. Once everything is ready, bring a pan of oil up to a medium high heat. You don't want to crowd the pan here to allow the protein to get some nice brown colour on it for maximum flavour. This shouldn't take too long, perhaps 5-10 minutes but make sure it's cooked through by cutting open the biggest piece.

  6. Get everything served up on the table and leave a space for your pan of meat. I like to quickly fry my tortillas in the oils left over from cooking the pork, or even add any extra marinade to crisp them up and give them some extra flavour. This is honestly such an easy and delicious meal!
