If there's ever been a reason to celebrate on a Thursday, Cinco de Mayo is it! Take your evening up a notch with shrimp tacos and spicy grapefruit margaritas - and add an extra spice to the bite and kick to the rim with our Firecracker Salt.
SHRIMP TACOS WITH PINEAPPLE SALSA
- 1 lb peeled and deveined shrimp (we love getting our seafood from Alaskan King Crab)
- 2 tbsp Auntie Nono's Firecracker Sea Salt
- 3 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 ½ cups fresh pineapple, diced
- 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
- 1/4 red onion, diced
- 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
- 1 tbsp lime juice
- Salt to taste
- For the shrimp – In a bowl, toss raw shrimp with Auntie NoNo’s Firecracker Salt. Heat a pan to medium high heat, then add 3 tablespoons of butter. Once butter is melted, add shrimp to the pan and cook for a 4-5 minutes until shrimp is pink. Remove shrimp from heat. Once the shrimp have cooled down, cut them into bite sized pieces.
- For the salsa – Combine pineapple, red bell pepper, red onion, cilantro and lime juice in a bowl and salt to taste.
- Assemble tacos – Add shrimp and a spoon full of salsa onto a tortilla. Garnish with cilantro and add an extra dash of Firecracker Sea Salt for a spicy kick!
