With Summer just around the corner, I’m thinking these tacos followed by mango & watermelon margaritas might be the best combination ever to celebrate the hot season!

To make these Spicy Shrimp Tacos With Mango Salsa all you need is very simple ingredients: hard shell tacos, fresh shrimps, japanese shichimi and my favorite mango salsa. Yes, that’s all! Plus, they come together in just as little as 20 mins. Easy-peasy, right?

I’ve seasoned the shrimps with some lime juice, olive oil and shichimi, to give a lovely spicy kick which is well balanced by the fruity and refreshing mango salsa.

Shichimi is usually available in most Asian super stores, and it’s a Japanese spice mixture containing typically seven ingredients:

  • coarsely ground red chili pepper (the main ingredient)
  • ground sansh? (“Japanese pepper”)
  • roasted orange/yuzu peel
  • black & white sesame seeds
  • hemp seed
  • ground ginger
  • nori  (seaweed)

You can of course use fresh chili to add some spiciness, or you just leave it out altogether for the kids or if you’re not a spicy fan.
