<i>Mango Pico de Gallo</i>: To a medium bowl, add the mango, tomato, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, chiles and red pepper flakes. Place in the refrigerator for 20 minutes, until ready to serve. <br><br>
<i>Cabbage Slaw</i>: In a medium bowl, stir together the cabbage, lime juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. <br><br>
<i>Fish</i>: To a medium bowl, add the flour and baking powder and whisk to combine. Slowly whisk in the seltzer until smooth. Set aside for 10 minutes. <br><br>
To a Dutch oven or a large pot set over medium-high heat, add the canola oil and heat until it reaches 350° on an instant-read thermometer. Season the fish with ½ teaspoon of the salt and ¼ teaspoon of the black pepper, then dip each piece into the batter, turning the pieces to evenly coat. Add about half of the battered fish to the hot oil and fry until the fish is golden-brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Use a frying spider or a slotted spoon to transfer the fried fish to a paper-towel-lined plate. Repeat with the remaining fish, then season the fried fish with the remaining ½ teaspoon of salt and ¼ teaspoon of pepper. <br><br>

<i>Chicken</i>: Set the chicken on a plate and season with ½ teaspoon salt. Set aside for 20 minutes at room temperature. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan set over medium heat, add the olive oil, shallot and garlic and cook, stirring often, until the shallot is translucent, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the thyme sprigs, bay leaves and remaining 2 teaspoons of salt, then pour in the chicken broth and the water. <br><br>
Juice the lemon and set the lemon juice aside for the vinaigrette. Add the juiced lemon halves to the saucepan, bring the broth to a simmer, then add the chicken breasts and reduce the heat to low. Gently cook the chicken in the broth until it registers 160° on an instant-read thermometer, about 30 minutes. Turn off the heat and cool the chicken in the broth for 10 minutes, then remove the chicken breasts from the broth and set on a paper-towel- lined plate to cool. When the chicken breasts are cool enough to handle, use two forks to shred them into shards. <br><br>
<i>Salad</i>: Preheat the oven to 350°. On a rimmed baking sheet, place the pistachios and bake until fragrant and toasted, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from the oven and transfer the pistachios to a cutting board. Once cool, roughly chop and set aside. (If serving the chicken salad on buns, place the buns on a baking sheet and toast them in the oven). <br><br>
In a large bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, mustard, tarragon and salt. While whisking, slowly drizzle in the olive oil until all of the olive oil is added and the vinaigrette is thick and creamy. Add the pulled chicken to the bowl along with the pistachios, chopped mango, celery and scallions. Gently toss to coat and serve on the flatbread crisps or the buns, or wrapped in the lettuce leaves. <br><br>
