1. FOR THE CILANTRO SAUCE: Whisk all ingredients together in bowl. (Sauce can be refrigerated for up to 2 days.)
2. FOR THE CAULIFLOWER TACOS: Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 450 degrees. Combine coleslaw mix, mango, lime juice, cilantro, jalapeño, and ¼ teaspoon salt in bowl; cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
3. Spray rimmed baking sheet with vegetable oil spray. Combine coconut and panko in shallow dish. Whisk coconut milk, garlic powder, cumin, cayenne, and remaining 1 teaspoon salt together in bowl. Add cauliflower to coconut milk mixture; remove from coconut milk mixture, letting excess drip back into bowl; then coat well with coconut-panko mixture, pressing gently to adhere. Transfer cauliflower to prepared sheet.
4. Bake until cauliflower is tender, golden, and crisp, 20 to 25 minutes, flipping cauliflower and rotating sheet halfway through baking.
