There is significant flavor and crispiness from the fried cutlets in this recipe, and the mango salsa brings it to the next level. Top the tacos off with some pickled red onions, or if you want to spice things up a bit, add a hot pepper or two. For an extra crunch try a hard taco shell and top them with your favorites. Leftovers are great turned into a crispy veal taco salad.
Don’t forget to let the oil heat up before beginning to cook your cutlets, you’ll know when they are ready to flip when they move freely from the pan. If they are still sticking, then they need to cook a little longer.
