Southwest Shrimp Tacos

Southwest Shrimp Tacos

My oldest has a summer favorite - fish and shrimp tacos. The two proteins can honestly be used interchangeably with this recipe. But, this recipe is a weekly request when menu planning. Citrus marinated seafood with Calicutts Southwest Taco Spice Blend, topped with fresh mango salsa and an avocado lime crema.


For the Shrimp

For the Mango Salsa

  • 3 C Mango, finely diced
  • ⅓ C Red onion, minced
  • 1 Jalapeño, seeds and ribs removed, then minced
  • ½ Red bell pepper, cored, seeded and finely diced
  • ⅓ C Cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp Lime juice
  • Salt, to taste

For the Avocado Lime Crema

  1. Combine the juice of your lime and orange with Calicutts Southwest Taco Spice Blend. Add shrimp, stirring to coat, and place I. The refrigerator for 5-10 minutes to marinate.

  2. While the shrimp is marinading, make your mango salsa. Place the mango, red onion, jalapeño, bell pepper, and cilantro in a bowl. Stir in lime juice and salt. Set to the side.

  3. Remove your shrimp from the refrigerator and drain excess marinade. Over medium heat, sauté your shrimp in a skillet for about 3-4 minutes, flip and cook on the other side until cooked through.

  4. As shrimp are cooking, place ingredients for the avocado lime crema in a food processor and blend until smooth.

  5. Assemble your taco and enjoy!
