Easy Shrimp Tacos - It is a Keeper

If you’re looking for a tasty and quick meal, give these Shrimp Tacos a try!

Shrimp Tacos can be made in under 30 minutes with a simple marinade made from salsa.

Hi everyone! I’m Jade for Jonesin’ For Taste and I am so happy to be back to share another recipe with you all.  Seafood is a great protein for busy days because of how quickly it cooks up.

I snagged some shrimp on sale at my grocery store one day because I knew it would come in handy on a day when I really didn’t feel like cooking.  Boy was I glad I did.  I had a crazy day running around and got home just before dinner time.  I was at a loss at what to make when I remembered the shrimp and saw some peach mango salsa in the fridge.  I put a cup of salsa in the blender to make a marinade.  Quick and easy and gave the shrimp lots of great flavor.

Shrimp Tacos can be made in under 30 minutes with a simple marinade made from salsa.

Top some corn tortillas with shrimp, coleslaw, and extra salsa for quick to throw together tacos.  If you are looking for another quick meal check out my Easy Asian Salmon in Foil.  The best part about that one is it’s a no-mess cooking method.  Just toss the foil when done! And if you are not a fan of seafood you can try this recipe- Black Pepper Pork which takes just a few minutes of cooking time to get a great protein on the table.

Thanks, everyone!  I’ll see you again next month and stop by to visit me over on my blog Jonesin’ For Taste.
