Shrimp Tacos with Mango-Avocado Salsa Recipe

Posted By Laura On June 29, 2012 @ 10:35 am In Recipes | Comments Disabled

Now I wanted to point out before I post this recipe I HATE seafood.  In all forms.  Unless it’s tuna fish with so much mayonnaise and relish you can’t taste the tuna I’m not interested.  For the sake of being a good blogger I ate one of these while I was in New York so I could give you a fair assessment.  Biting into the shrimp did not make me happy but the salsa was INCREDIBLE.  So I may try this recipe later… with chicken.

Active Time:   25 minutes

Total Time:  1 hour

Amount:   4 servings


¼ cup olive oil

¼ cup water

1 (1 ounce) packet Carlita® Fajita Seasoning Mix

1 pound uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 cup diced mangoes

½ cup chopped red onion

1 fresh jalapeño pepper, seeded and diced

1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and diced

½ cup Carlita Salsa Verde

- bamboo skewers, soaked in water 30 minutes

8 (6-inch) Carlita Flour Tortillas, warmed

- crumbled Mexican Cotija cheese


  1. In large bowl, combine oil, water and fajita seasoning mix.  Add shrimp; toss to coat.  Let stand 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in medium bowl combine mangoes, onion, pepper, avocado and salsa.  Toss to coat; salt to taste.  Set aside.
  3. Prepare grill to medium heat.  Place shrimp on skewers; discard marinade.  Grill shrimp, turning once, until cooked through and opaque (about 8-10 minutes).
  4. Remove shrimp from skewers and place in tortillas.  Top with salsa and cheese.

Tip:  Jarred mangoes found in the produce section work great for this recipe.

*Carlita brand items are found at only certain stores in the US supplied by Super Valu [1]. If you don’t have them you can substitute with no problem.
