These Mango Shrimp Tostadas are quick and easy, ready in less than 30 minutes. Crunchy tortillas are topped with smashed avocado, mango salsa and spicy shrimp!
Happy Cinco de Mayo! Are you celebrating tonight? If you forgot about it, but still want to celebrate, you’re in luck. Today is also Thirty Minute Thursday, so I have a super simple, fast and easy recipe for you.
I make shrimp tacos often because it’s easy to stock shrimp in your freezer and it defrosts and cooks up so quickly. I like to pair the shrimp with some kind of fruit salsa– I’ve done peach and strawberry, but my favorite is mango. Today I’m switching up the taco routine and stacking everything on top of crispy corn tortillas.
Both mangoes and avocados have been perfectly ripe around here lately, so this was the perfect time of year to make these. I love that the cool, creamy avocado pairs perfectly with the spicy shrimp and bit of sweetness from the mango salsa.
My very favorite part of this meal is how colorful it is! Perfect for celebrating Cinco de Mayo, don’t you think? So pretty!
