I love the long days during this time of the year. After coming home from work, I enjoy the weather outside by going for a run, picking fresh veggies from my garden and grilling dinner. I often crave tacos but want something more than just your standard pork or chicken taco. In general, tacos are pretty quick and easy to make. Pick a few ingredients, add some fresh seasonings and enjoy. Shrimp tacos with mango avocado salsa come together in little time are are a light and flavorful option for lunch or dinner.

Shrimp tacos with mango avocado salsa use the freshest seasonal ingredients. Lightly season the shrimp, cook and add the fresh salsa to create a relatively light and flavorful meal. The homemade salsa is the perfect addition to the grilled shrimp. You don’t even need to add anything else to the tortillas because the shrimp and salsa are packed with flavor. I really love the flavors of the salsa combined with the shrimp and don’t want any additional toppings to distract from the simple flavors. Feel free to add your favorite toppings, such as sour cream and cheese, if desired.
