Customize It Instructions

  • If using 16 oz. shrimp, follow same instructions as 8 oz. shrimp, working in batches if necessary.

  • If using salmon, pat dry and season a pinch of salt and pepper (skip flour). Follow same instructions as shrimp in Step 3, cooking, skin-side up first, until salmon reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side. Flake salmon, if desired, before adding to taco.

  • If using steak strips, spread into a single layer, pat dry, coarsely chop, and season with a pinch of salt and pepper and flour. Follow same instructions as shrimp in Step 3, stirring occasionally until no pink remains and steak strips reach minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as shrimp in Step 3, seasoning with a pinch of salt and pepper and flour, and breaking up burger until heated through, 4-6 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    If mango is frozen, rinse under cold water until thawed. Coarsely chop mango.

    Halve lime. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half.

    Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate.

    Stem jalapeño, halve, seed, remove ribs, and mince. Wash hands and cutting board after working with jalapeño.

    Pat shrimp dry and halve lengthwise. In a mixing bowl, combine shrimp, flour, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside.

  2. 2

    Make the Slaw

    In another mixing bowl, combine mango, slaw mix, lime juice, jalapeño, white portions of green onions, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Cook the Shrimp

    Heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.

    Add shrimp to hot pan and cook until lightly browned and shrimp reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 2-3 minutes per side.

    Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Warm the Tortillas

    Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave until warmed, 30-60 seconds. If tortillas come folded, keep folded.

    Alternatively, place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add tortillas, one at a time, to hot, dry pan. Heat undisturbed, 30-45 seconds per side. Remove from pan.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    In another mixing bowl, combine guacamole and sour cream.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, filling tortillas with shrimp and topping with slaw, green portions of green onions, and sour cream-guacamole mixture. Squeeze lime wedges over tacos to taste. Bon appétit!
