Oh, these tacos. We had something similar at Revolucion a few years back and were inspired to try making our own- to phenomenal results. These are a perfect summer taco, especially paired with an icy margarita. The salsa is sweet with a kick, the perfect compliment to shrimp sautéed with sriracha and honey. Great for an at-home fiesta or date night!

Ingredients:
For the salsa:
1 mango, diced
2 tbsps diced jalapeños
1 small red onion, diced
1/3 cup cilantro
Squirt of lime juice

For the tacos:
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lb small-medium cooked, deveined, tail off shrimp
1 tbsp minced garlic
3 tbsp sriracha
Squirt of honey

For assembling:
1 package corn tortillas
Queso blanco or similar Mexican shredded cheese

Directions:
First, make your salsa so the flavors have time to stew and combine. Dice up a yummy mango and the rest of your ingredients. Stir ’em up, cover it and refrigerate for at least an hour or two before serving.

Next, heat olive oil in a medium-large skillet. Toss in garlic and shrimp and give ’em a few quick stirs. Add the sriracha and honey and continue sautéing, just until shrimp reach doneness. You’ll know your shrimp is overcooked if they curl into O’s!
