These Grilled Shrimp Tacos with Avocado Slaw and Mango Salsa are perfect for an easy weeknight dinner or make a big batch of them and throw a taco party on the weekend! The fresh tropical flavors are sure to make everyone happy!
Get excited you guys! It’s taco Tuesday and I actually have a new taco recipe to share with you. I have plenty of taco recipes on the blog, but I can never seem to get the timing right for sharing the recipe. Lucky for you I got my act together and made these Grilled Shrimp Tacos with Avocado Slaw and Mango Salsa just in time for taco Tuesday!
Everything about these tacos screams summer. Grilling, shrimp, mangos, slaw, this is definitely a summer taco. If you’ve been suffering through a heat wave like I have, then I bet one of these fresh, flavorful tacos with a tropical twist will help transport you from the miserable sweat induced coma you’ve been in, to an island paradise! Okay, maybe not, but it’s worth pretending. Anything to get your mind off of the miserable heat!
When it comes to tacos my theory is 50% of the flavor should come from the filling and the other 50% should come from the toppings. These Grilled Shrimp Tacos with Avocado Slaw and Mango Salsa have a good balance of both. The shrimp is seasoned with chili powder, smoked paprika, cumin, salt and pepper. The spices give the shrimp a great smokey flavor that’s enhanced even more when they’re grilled. I find that skewering the shrimp is the easiest way to grill them so they don’t fall between the grates.
Now for those toppings! First, the avocado slaw. The great flavor for this creamy slaw comes from Sabra’s new Veggie Fusions Guacamole. I used the Mango Lime version because it made the most sense since I was making a mango salsa, but it also comes in Garden Vegetable and South Western flavors. All three varieties are vegan, kosher, gluten-free and I love that they contain 30% less fat than a classic guacamole and are made with real vegetables. To add a little more creaminess to the slaw I combined the Veggie Fusions Guacamole with some Greek yogurt plus cilantro and lime juice for a little added freshness. While I could have stopped with the avocado slaw, I couldn’t resist finishing off these tacos with some fresh mango salsa! It’s the perfect tropical, sweet finish to these summer tacos!
