A recipe for succulent shrimp tacos served with homemade mango-avocado salsa and plenty of jalapeno peppers.

File this recipe under “Quick and Easy”. And summerlicious. Is that a word? It should be!

Summertime is ideal for light, bright foods, especially when you can sit outside and grill. Shrimp takes practically no time to cook, so you can have this meal ready is practically no time.

For an even quicker meal, make the salsa ahead of time and let it sit in the fridge a couple hours. It will allow the flavors to meld together. So good on shrimp tacos.

The salsa is vibrant and colorful with fresh green jalapeno peppers and diced avocado, red tomatoes, tropical mango, crisp lime juice, cilantro…I’m getting hungry again describing it.

Just see below. It practically wants to leap out of the bowl and straight into my belly.

    The mango-avocado salsa is creamy and cool, but spiced with a hit of crunchy jalapeño. Combined in a soft tortilla with some cotija cheese and fresh cilantro, everything just works.
