Shrimp Tacos with Mango Salsa are a super flavorful and satisfying meal that is perfect for spring and summer months.



1 lb large or jumbo shrimp, fresh or frozen, peeled and deveined
1 tbsp homemade taco seasoning
¼ red cabbage, sliced thin
1 tbsp avocado or olive oil
2 oz Queso cheese, crumbled
1 avocado, diced
8 6-inch white or yellow corn tortillas
1 cup Fresh Mango Salsa

For the sauce:

1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup Greek yogurt
1 tsp hot sauce
Juice from 1 lime (about 1.5 tbsp)


  1. Make the mango salsa. Full recipe can be found here.
  2. Make the sauce. In a small bowl combine mayo, yogurt, hot sauce and lime juice and whisk until smooth. If it’s very thick, add some cold water, 1 tsp at a time and mix until you reach the desired consistency.
  3. Sprinkle taco seasoning on raw shrimp and mix well to coat.
  4. Heat the oil in a skillet and add the shrimp. Cook on medium high heat for about 2 minutes per side until the shrimp is pink and lightly browned. Set aside.
  5. Toast corn tortillas on an open flame of a gas stove on medium high heat until lightly charred on the edges, 10-20 seconds per side. You can also toast them on a very hot griddle or skillet.
  6. Assemble the tacos. Place some shredded red cabbage on each taco, add some mango salsa, top with shrimp (3-4 pieces per taco), avocado chunks, crumbled Queso cheese and a drizzle of the sauce.
  7. Serve and enjoy!
