Shrimp Tacos with Mango Salsa

My amazing, fabulous, super cool little sister is in town for a while! Yay! We both love getting in the kitchen and cooking together...just finished a late-night cookie making frenzy, in fact. For dinner tonight, we made this delightful (and quite healthy) summery-fresh meal! I'm sure that the dish isn't that original, but this is definitely our own version.

You need:

Mango Salsa-
2 roma tomatoes, rough chopped and seeds removed
2 mangoes, peeled and cut into small cubes
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
1/2 bunch cilantro, rough chopped
Juice from one lime
1/4 cup pickled jalapenos, more or less to taste, rough chopped
Salt and pepper
Dash of cayenne pepper

2 pounds fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 tablespoons butter
Salt and pepper

Taco toppings-
Shredded lettuce
Queso Fresco, crumbled

Make it:

1. Mix tomatoes, mangoes, cilantro, onion, jalapeno.
2. Toss with lime juice.
3. Season with salt, pepper and cayenne.
4. Cover and chill in fridge for at least one hour.

1. Saute shrimp in melted butter.
2. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Cook until nice and pink.

Assemble tacos with desired amounts of salsa, shrimp, lettuce and queso fresco.
