For the Blackened Shrimp:

For the Mango Salsa:

For the Greek Yogurt Chipolte Lime Sauce:

  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • ½ lime juiced
  • ½ teaspoon adobo sauce from chipotles peppers in adobe sauce


  • 8 tortillas
  • Extras: Lime Wedges, Cheese, Cilantro


For the Blackened Shrimp:

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.  For easy clean up line it with foil and then spray it.
  • Toss your shrimp in the Blackening Seasoning and olive oil in a medium bowl.
  • Put the shrimp on the baking sheet in a single layer.
  • Cook for 3-5 minutes. The shrimp are done when they turn pink and just start to curl.

For the Mango Salsa:

  • Follow the instructions in the linked recipe below to peel the mango and mix all the ingredients together.

For the Greek Yogurt Chipolte Sauce:

  • In a small mixing bowl, measure out your Greek yogurt.
  • Spoon out the chipotle sauce by pushing the peppers to the side of the jar.  Start with less and add more to tastes, as it can be spicy.
  • Add a touch of lime.
  • You can either just spoon on the sauce or put it in a zip lock bag and cut a small hole in the corner to create the pretty line.

To Assemble the Shrimp Tacos:

  • Warm up your tortilla either on the stove or microwave.
  • Fill with the taco shells with the blackened shrimp. Squeeze some lime juice on top.
  • Spoon the Mango Salsa on top.
  • Drizzle the Greek Yogurt Chipotle Sauce.
  • Serve immediately.
