Pan-Seared shrimp seasoned with cajun spice, wrapped in a warmed tortilla shell with fresh guacamole, a sweet and spicy, crunchy mango salsa, topped with a whipped scallion and lime dressing; literally another flavour and texture extravaganza 🙂
- Prep Time: 10 Minutes
- Cook Time: 5 Minutes
- Total Time: 15 minutes
- Yield: 8
- Method: Stovetop
453g/1lb shrimp, cleaned and deveined
Cajun seasoning, to taste
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
8 Flour tortillas, warmed (I just use the microwave but the oven will work too)
1 Batch Guacamole
1 Batch Mango Salsa
1 Batch Creamy Lime Scallion Dressing (you can use ranch sauce in a pinch)
Heat a frying pan over medium high heat and add the olive oil, when it’s hot (the oil will ripple) add in the shrimp; season with some of the Cajun seasoning.
Cook for 2-3 minutes until the shrimp are cooked.
You can tell the shrimp are cooked when they are pink and opaque and have curled into the letter “C”.
To assemble the tacos put some guacamole (1-2 tbsp in the centre of the warmed shell.
Top with an 1/8th of the shrimp in the pan.
Top with the mango salsa (again, about 1-2 tbsp), then drizzle the mayo or ranch sauce.
Serve immediately and enjoy one of my favourite meals ever 🙂
- To warm the tortillas, wrap tightly in wax paper and microwave on high for one minute.
- Yes this is virtually identical to my Fish Tacos tacos but I’m telling you, they’re awesome!!!
