Shrimp Tacos with Avocado and Mango Salsa Recipe

Shrimp Tacos with Avocado and Mango
Yasmin Fahr

Ingredients

  •  
  • ½ ripe mango (use the rest for mango margaritas or something delicious), diced
  • ½ scallion, light green and green parts only
  • ½ jalapeño, diced
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • 3 sprigs cilantro, chopped
  • Salt and fresh black pepper
  • 12 peeled and deveined shrimp
  • 2 or 3 pinches of cayenne
  • 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 corn or flour tortillas
  • ½ ripe avocado, sliced thinly, for garnish

Spicy, sweet, and creamy, these tacos with mango salsa are great for a quick dinner or for an outdoor get together when it's warm outside (plus it pairs well with margaritas). While I sliced some avocado on top of these tacos, you can also add a scoop of homemade guacamole to make the dish even more filling (and delicious). 

The recipe can also be easily doubled or tripled to feed a group since it's incredibly easy to make and works perfectly for large-format meals.

Directions

In a bowl, combine the mango, scallion, jalapeño, lime juice, cilantro, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Combine together, re-seasoning as needed. Set aside to let the flavors soak together while you prepare the shrimp. 

In a bowl, combine the shrimp with the salt, pepper, cayenne, and olive oil. Toss together. Heat a large pan over high heat, when hot, turn down to medium-high heat and add the shrimp. Cook for about 2-3 minutes per side until no longer transluscent (but make sure not to over cook or they will become rubbery). 

Meanwhile, warm the tortillas in a pan, toaster, or oven until they are hot and soft (not crispy). On serving plates, place 3 shrimp in each tortilla, top with the mango salsa, and a slice or 2 of avocado. Serve immediately and enjoy!
