Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients for the blackened seasoning mix in a small bowl.
  2. Place prepared shrimp in a medium bowl and add the seasoning mix to it. Mix until the shrimp is well coated.
  3. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add seasoned shrimp and cook until no longer pink, stirring occasionally for about 2-3 minutes. Set aside.
  4. Make the Mango Avocado Salsa. (I recommend that you make it ahead of time, so making these tacos is even quicker.)

  1. AMAZING, wow. I’ve made these for dinner the last 3 nights because myself and my family loved them that much! I’ve never been a huge fan of shrimp but I devoured these, such beautiful perfectly balanced flavours, honestly the best thing I’ve eaten in a long time! Tried them with hard taco shells and preferred them that way, also tried it with chicken instead of shrimp as my brother is a bit fussy and it turned out great. Thanks for the recipe!
