Last weekend we wanted to make something Asian style seafood. We came up with a recipe that we tuned up a bit. It turned out the be the best taco recipe we have ever cooked. Seriously. Try it. Mango, cilantro and chili bring fresh and spicy tropical flavor to it and it is something that you have never had before! Guaranteed!

Shrimp Marinade

  • 1 lime – lima
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce – salsa soja
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil – aceite oliva
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar – azúcar morena
  • 1 clove of garlic – diente de ajo
  • 1 teaspoon of grated ginger – jengibre rallado
  • 1 chili – pimiento picante
  • 2 scallions chopped – cebollino

Combine shrimps, lime juice, soy sauce, olive oil, brown sugar, grated garlic and ginger, chopped chili and scallions in a bowl. Let it marinade in fridge for 30-60 minutes.

Mango Salsa

  • 1 lime – lima
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar – azúcar morena
  • 1 tablespoon of oyster sauce – salsa de ostras
  • 1 mango, peeled and cubed – mango

Use a frying pan or grill’s hotplate to heat up the corn tortillas. Move them to upper shelf to keep warm and spoon shrimps from the marinade to hotplate. Don’t let them overcook.

Put some mango salsa on tortilla, top with the shrimps and enjoy!
