Make the Boom Boom Shrimp Tacos!

  • Prepare the shrimp according to the package’s instructions.
  • While the shrimp is baking, heat up the corn tortillas*, if desired. To do this, I use a kitchen brush to spread a little vegetable oil on both sides of each tortilla. Then, I heat a skillet on the stove on medium heat and let each tortilla cook for a minute or two, flipping the tortilla once it's turned a nice golden brown.
  • Build your taco: Grab a tortilla, add the shrimp (or fish), and top with cabbage, mango salsa, boom boom sauce, and extra cilantro and lime juice, if desired.


*These tacos can be made with flour or corn tortillas – I just prefer the corn tortillas as it adds another dimension of flavor to the tacos.
*This salsa could also be made with pineapple or peaches in place of the mango – experiment and see what you like!
*Not a huge fan of shrimp?  Try fish sticks or baked fish instead.
