Shrimp Tacos

Well, it seems like mango made a comeback.
We finished work late last night. I wanted something quick & I my taco dreams started at about 1pm that afternoon...

Like doughnuts to Homer, tacos to Marysol. Proof a) & b) & c) & d)

Shrimp Taco Filling

20 large shrimp, cooked (in mirin), chopped
1 mango, cubed
1/3 cup red onion, diced
2 green onions, chopped
3 limes, juiced (less if you have really juicy ones...)
Sambal or red chilies, I put 2 Tbsp, adjust to your heat level...
1/4 cup orange juice
1 handful Thai basil, chopped
1 large handful coriander, chopped
shredded lettuce


Don said... seafood in a taco, especially with mango :)

may I ask where you source your corn tortillas? Chef at Play Food and Wine told me it's easiest to make my own :P

Hey Don,

Mike was right, it is easy... Although I find you need a press, rolling out the dough is just not the same. And then you have to fry them (or pan-cook if you want soft tacos)

I took a great class with Maria Garza from Cultural Kitchen, look her up, she is fabulous.

Old El Paso was my friend last night ;) but you can find some awesome products at the Latin video store on Somerset. I love going there...
