Shrimpo de Mayo

Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

We decided to celebrate with shrimp tacos and margaritas. Aye caramba!

This was another "Superfast" Cooking Light recipe that I found and it was another success! You use pre-cooked shrimp and there is no actual cooking involved in it, which means it's great for a hot summer day. {FYI It hit 95 degrees here today.}

Basically the filling for the tacos is ceviche, which is a cold shrimp dish. Traditionally, the shrimp is "cooked" in the lime juice but in this case the shrimp is pre-cooked and just soaked in the lime juice for a short period of time.

I forgot to buy avocados {doh!} so we subbed mango chunks for the avocado. It worked out surprisingly well that way.

Here's the recipe for Ceviche-Style Shrimp & Avocado Tacos {click the link}. Enjoy!


  1. This recipe sounds right up my alley! Thanks for sharing it - I just bookmarked it. :)

  2. only a gourmet cook would have mangos around the house to replace the avacado! AR
