Shrimp Tacos with Mango Salsa

I'm on the look out for more no cook dinners! This one requires cooking but not very much. I love cooking with shrimp because it doesn't take much time at all.

Seafood Taco with Mango Salsa

For the Mango Salsa

2 mangoes, peeled and diced
1 jalapeno, stemmed and diced (leave seeds if you want it spicy)
1/2 medium red onion, diced
1 tbsp lime juice
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp cilantro, chopped

For the Taco

1 lb of shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, sliced
Dash of Worcestershire
Dash of Tabasco
1 red bell pepper, sliced
8 corn tortillas
2 cups shredded Monterrey jack cheese

Combine all of the ingredients for the mango salsa in a bowl and stir. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours.

Take the shells off of the shrimp and sprinkle salt on top. In a large pan over medium heat, saute the shrimp in 1 tbsp of olive for about 3 minutes, until they are pink. Transfer the shrimp to a plate and add the remaining 2 tbsps of olive oil to the pan. Add the onions, Worcestershire and Tabasco and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the red bell pepper and cook for 5 more minutes. Remove from heat and salt and pepper to taste.

Assemble you tacos with shrimp, onion and pepper mixture, cheese and salsa. Or make them into quesadillas.

If you are the low-carb type...this taste great without the tortilla.
