The perfect meal for Taco Tuesday or Cinco de Mayo- shrimp marinated in Nola’s Salsa combines with mango and avocado for truly delicious tacos.
Taco Tuesday is a favorite meal in our house. While lots of times it is relatively boring ground turkey tacos, our real favorites are shrimp tacos. MJD absolutely loves them and because you can make them pretty quickly, I am also a big fan of them for a weeknight dinner.
I was introduced to the recipe I am sharing today from Sherrie Grillion, owner of Massachusetts based Nola’s Fresh Foods. Nola’s makes super fresh, all natural salsas that are free of preservatives, artificial coloring, oils and sugar. Oh and the best part, their salsas taste amazing! MJD and I both loved the way their salsas tasted and how this recipe came together. I honestly never would have thought to marinate the shrimp in salsa, but it is the perfect way to infuse flavors into your tacos. Another plus? Mango-Avocado Shrimp Tacos are seriously insta-worthy! I mean, how pretty are these guys? This recipe is definitely going to be on heavy rotation for us going forward- check it out for yourself below 🙂
Makes eight tacos
- 1 pound extra large shrimp, peeled and raw
- 2 avocados, cubed
