Zesty marinated shrimp tacos with a mango, cherry tomato, and avocado salsa. This is an easy and quick weeknight dinner!
Long, sweet summer days are what we look forward to all…year…long. Warm nights when there is still daylight at 8pm and every night seems to end with a freeze pop! When I think of those nights, I also think of citrusy, fresh shrimp tacos. I know I can technically make shrimp tacos year round, but there’s something about those summer nights that go hand in hand with shrimp tacos.
