Savory 30-minute tacos stuffed with baked coconut-crusted shrimp and mangos, and topped with a cilantro coconut sauce to die for!
Tacos tacos tacos tacos!!!!
Yes we are having tacos today. Really yummy coconut shrimp tacos.
You can definitely eat the tacos straight up, I won’t fault you on that, but if you have ten extra seconds you should dice up some red peppers, mangos, and a bunch of pineapple and load up your tacos with all of that yummy stuff. Really, you should.
MMmmmmmmm. It’s like a tropical vacation in your mouth.
I must warn you, the coconut shrimp is so delish that if you try a bite before assembling your tacos, you just might end up with a stomach-full of shrimps and a few empty tortillas. Juuuuuust sayin.
