How To Make The Easy Shrimp Tacos

First we’ll start with the Mango Salsa

  • Add all ingredients and toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

For the tacos

  • Pre-heat grill and oil the grill rack.
  • Thread shrimp on metal or soaked wooden skewers, running skewer through the body once near the tail and once near the head end of each shrimp so it looks like the letter C.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the 2 tablespoons of oil and blackening seasoning.
  • Brush the shrimp with some of the spice mixture.
  • Place the shrimp skewers and close lid on gas grill.
  • Cook, turning once, until shrimp are bright pink and opaque but still moist-looking in center of thickest part, 5 to 6 minutes total.
  • Lightly brush the tortillas with the remaining oil mixture and place over the hottest part of the grill. Grill until they start to puff up, about 1 minute.
  • Turn using tongs and cook for another minute.
  • To service just arrange the shrimp on the tortillas and add the salsa.

    I agree that mango salsa is to die for. Love the combination of the mangoes and shrimps. The photos looks very delicious and inviting. Can’t wait to try this for our family gathering.

    Good fish tacos are irresistible, but I’m more interested in this tasty mango salsa. I’d want to grab a spoon and eat it all myself (did I just admit that out loud?)

    1. Hi Dara, I’ve been following your blog for a while now so thanks for stopping by! Let’s never throw away shrimp lol! Thanks again!

    I am absolutely hooked on fish tacos (usually with salmon), but somehow I’ve never made fish tacos! This is a must-try, and you’re right – a great way to use leftover shrimp. LOVE the gorgeous photos, as always!

    1. Hi Jess! awe thanks a bunch! It was until last year that I started making my own seafood tacos (shrimp, salmon, fish) and I’m hooked as well! I can’t wait to try others. I hope you get to make it!
