Fresh ingredients are key to this mouthwatering recipe

  • Shrimps: we use pre-cooked shrimps for quicker preparation, but you can also opt for fresh ones
  • Taco Shells: you can use soft wheat or corn tortillas, or hard tacos shells, depending on your preference
  • Iceberg Lettuce: shredded iceberg lettuce adds a refreshing and crunchy texture to the tacos. If unavailable, romaine lettuce can be a great substitute.
  • Avocado-Mango Salsa: Dice ripe avocados and sweet mangoes, and mix them with finely chopped red onion, freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice, chopped cilantro, and a pinch of salt. If you prefer a spicier kick, add diced jalapeño or serrano pepper to the salsa. The sweetness of the mango and the creaminess of the avocado bring a perfect richness to the tacos.
  • Seasoning: Fry the shrimp with a mix of smoked paprika and chili for a smoky and mildly spicy flavor. Adjust the level of chili to suit your taste preferences.
  • Spicy Sauce: Create a spicy and creamy sauce by combining mayonnaise and Sriracha. Feel free to add more Sriracha for an extra fiery taste, or use your favorite spicy sauce
