Ingredients

Mango Pico de Gallo

  • 1 mango peeled and chopped small
  • 1 cup tomatoes chopped small (about 1-2 tomatoes, seeds discarded)
  • 1/2 cup red onion chopped small
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Baja Sauce

  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 jalapeño seeds discarded or not, depending on the amount of heat you want in your sauce
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ancho Chili powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro chopped

Shrimp

  • 16 oz raw shrimp peeled deveined
  • 1 garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 lime juiced
  • 1/8 teaspoon ancho chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

To assemble

  • 6 flour tortillas homemade or store-bought - homemade tortilla recipe below

Instructions

  1. Mix all ingredients from the Mango Pico de Gallo in a bowl and leave in the fridge until ready to serve.
  2. Blend all ingredients for the Baja Sauce in a small food processor until smooth. I like to use my single serving blender cup to do this.
  3. When it's time to cook the shrimp, if it is frozen, make sure to thaw it first. You can place shrimp in a colander and run under cold water for a few minutes until thawed. Then drain and pat dry with paper towels. Mix all ingredients for the shrimp together in a bowl.
  4. Pre-heat a non-stick medium skillet over high heat. Add seasoned shrimp to skillet and cook for 4-5 minutes, until shrimp is pink and has a light sear.
  5. To assemble
  6. You are going to need about 6 tortillas for this amount of shrimp. Follow the recipe bellow for homemade tortillas if that’s something you are into.
  7. Heat tortillas in a hot skillet for about 1 minute in each side. If you form a taco shape with the hot tortilla and let it cool, it will conserve the shape. Cool little trick. Stuff your tacos with shrimp, pour pico de Gallo over and then Baja sauce. ENJOY!
