Crispy Shrimp Tacos with Mango Salsa

Crispy Shrimp Tacos
(adapted from How Sweet It Is
1/2 pound raw, deveined shrimp (tails removed)
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp flour
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
4 corn or flour tortillas

Optional additions:
1/4 cup grated cotija or cheddar cheese
1 lime
shredded lettuce
fat free sour cream or fat free greek yogurt
mango salsa (below)
fresh salsa

Make sure shrimp is clean and completely dry. Combine salt, pepper, garlic and cumin and sprinkle it over the shrimp. Add the flour to a small bowl, and dredge the shrimp through the flour to get a very light coating on it. Heat a skillet on medium high heat and add the olive oil. Once hot, add the shrimp and brown on each side, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove the shrimp and let drain on a paper towel.

Mango Salsa

(for 6)
3 mangos, diced
1 medium red onion, diced small
1 medium red pepper, diced
large handful of cilantro, chopped roughly
juice of 2 limes
s&p to taste

combine all ingredients and serve!! it's so easy and this was everyone's favorite part of the meal!

mango salsa is always my favorite salsa - the fresh, fruity flavors mix so well with the acidic lime juice and fragant cilantro! i want some now......

quite the mexican spread for an irish holiday :)
