Shrimp Tacos With Mango Salsa is one of the fastest dinners to whip up. Clean your shrimp, pat dry, and season it, and cook it with butter or oil. I have posted a mango salsa recipe before which you can make ahead of time before you need it. You can double the recipe if you’re making it for more people, just double the recipe or adjust it as required.
You can make use of corn, or flour tortilla (any size of your choice), you can use medium, large, or jumbo shrimp size, the small size will be too small after cooking, however, if that’s all you have you could use it. You can garnish the tacos as desired. If you need a fast dinner recipe, these shrimp tacos with mango salsa are for you. I’ll link the mango salsa recipe below, check it out to make yours.

You might want to try:
- 1 Pound Shrimp (peeled, deveined, tail removed)
- 2 Tablespoons Butter/ butter (adjust if you need more)
- 1/2 Teaspoon Lemon juice
- 1 Tablespoon Creole seasoning
- 1 Teaspoon Onion powder
- 1 Teaspoon Garlic powder
- Bouillon powder/ cube (optional)
- 1/4 Teaspoon Smoked paprika (optional)
- Salt and pepper
- Mango Salsa
- Flour or corn Tortillas
- Cabbage for serving
Clean the shrimp pat dry, add the seasoning; creole seasoning, seasoning powder (if you're using), onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix to combine.
Place a saucepan/pot over medium-high heat.
Add the butter to a saucepan/pot over medium-high heat and melt and the pan is hot. Place the shrimps in a single layer. Cook each side for about 3 minutes (depending on the size) until the shrimps are fully cooked. Add the lemon juice and let simmer.
Remove onto a plate and set aside.
Slice the cabbage and drop them in the pan used for shrimps and coast the cabbage with leftover seasonings in the saucepan. This step is optional, I didn't want to waste all the juices from shrimps. You can use coleslaw with your favorite dressing instead of cabbage.
Get the mango salsa.
Warm the tortilla, place the cabbage (or coleslaw, whichever one you're using), add the shrimps and the mango salsa, sauce of your choice if you desire.
Roll up and enjoy!
