Shrimp Tacos

While looking trough food blogs I came across this post of Shrimp Tacos. The tacos looks like a great idea and the fact that is was a quick make made the draw of the recipe even greater.

1 pound cleaned shrimp, well dried

1 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon cayenne

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

salt and pepper

1/3 cup corn starch

2 tablespoons oil

2 mangos, cut into little chunks

1 avocado, cut into little chunks

onion, chopped

tomato, cut into little chunks

flour or corn tortillas
1 lime cut into wedges

place the dry shrimp in a bowl and sprinkle with the spices then cover with the corn starch, stirring to get a good thin coat on the shrimp then put in a colander and shack off extra corn starch.

Heat a cast iron pan, add the oil and then fry the shrimp for about 3 minutes on each side until browned on each side and done trough. remove the shrimp and place on a paper towel lined place to absorb any grease.

Heat tortilla shells (we like corn) and then place some shrimp and toppings on the tortilla, a squeeze of lime and enjoy.

Sprimp, mango and avocado sound wonderful together and all three I can get good this time of year. I will probably skip the tomato since they are so sad looking up here.
