How to Make Shrimp Tacos
The secret to making killer good tacos is using refreshing ingredients combined with the right amount of seasonings.
- Seasoning the shrimp: I love to use wild-caught shrimp for my shrimp tacos and all my recipes because they’re sweeter and more flavorful than farmed. The juicy shrimp need to be well-seasoned with cumin, smoked paprika and garlic powder. Fry the shrimp just until done and golden crispy on the outside!
- Mango Salsa Topping: The mango avocado salsa is home-made and adds just the right amount of creaminess, sweetness and zestiness to the recipe. It’s made with mango, tomatoes, cilantro, avocado and lime juice. I use this mango salsa for soo many of my recipes! Once you try it, you’ll know why I love it so much!
- Red Cabbage Slaw:You’ll love how the red cabbage slaw adds that bit of crunchiness and also more freshness to the shrimp tacos! It’s a super easy recipe, made with red cabbage, carrots, cilantro and cream for some extra creaminess!
Serving the Tacos
These delicious mango shrimp tacos are best when eaten straight away! I like to set up a taco bar so everyone can make their own and enjoy them as they go. I recommend making 2 small tacos at a time so the tortilla doesn’t get soggy! Make sure to keep some extra lime wedges on the side when serving these tacos. I love to add a squeeze of fresh lime juice over each taco right before enjoying them! You can also add a few drops of your favorite hot sauce on top!
