Easy Shrimp Tacos with Tangy Mango Salsa

Enjoy the refreshing taste of mangoes with this delicious shrimp tacos! What’s great about this recipe is that all the ingredients are fresh. Best to use fresh shrimps, too, instead of the frozen ones. The mango salsa for shrimp tacos adds a sweet and tangy flavor that everyone will surely enjoy.

Another thing I like about making this is that I can prepare the mango salsa and creamy cilantro sauce in advance. They taste better chilled so I can just store them in the fridge while I cook the shrimps. Anyway, shrimp does not take long to cook. The trick in cooking shrimp is that when it forms the letter “C” it means it’s already cooked.

What Goes with Shrimp Tacos

For your taco Tuesday or Mexican party, perhaps the best to pair with shrimp tacos is…tequila and margarita! But if you have kids, you can just settle for some ice cold lemonade. Nonetheless, shrimp tacos is perfect not just for taco parties but for everyday.

However, if you’re allergic to shrimp, you can also substitute it with fish such as mahi-mahi, cod, or tilapia fillets. You can also check out our fish tacos recipe and serve it with the mango salsa for shrimp tacos.

Anyway, I hope you will enjoy this recipe as much as we did. I love the interplay of flavors coupled with the sweet and tangy taste of fresh mangoes. Plus, it’s not heavy on the belly so you won’t have to feel guilty after eating this.
