Cinco De Mayo is right around the corner and this recipe is a perfect dish for this time of year. This month we explore how to make Shrimp Tacos with a mango, avocado salsa that are both healthy and inexpensive alternatives restaurant variations.
Shrimp Tacos with Mango Avocado SalsaIngredients For the Shrimp:
1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined (Or Firm Tofu if you do not desire shrimp) 1/2 tsp chili powder 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper 1/2 tsp ground cumin powder 1/2 tsp salt (I used sea salt)Mango Avocado Salsa
1/2 small Red Onion, finely diced 2 Tbsp of canned hot Jalapenos, finely chopped (optional) 1/4 bunch of cilantro 1 fresh Mango, diced 1 avocado, diced 3 Tbsp fresh Lemon JuiceTo Serve:
12 Small white corn tortillas 1 medium tomato, diced 1 Lemon cut into 6 wedges
Prepping the Shrimp:
1. Combine 1/2 tsp chili powder, 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, 1/2 tsp cumin and 1/2 tsp salt and sprinkle over shrimp. Stir shrimp to coat evenly.
2. Heat a large skillet over medium/high heat. Swirl in 1-2 Tbsp olive oil and saute about 1 min per side, or until pink and cooked through. Remove
from pan and set aside. Once shrimp are cooled, chop into large pieces if desired (they’re easier to eat if chopped).
1. In a medium bowl, combine: diced red onion, 2 Tbsp jalapeños, 1/4 bunch chopped cilantro, diced mango and diced avocado then drizzle in 3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice and stir to combine.
