 Put a fruity new spin on Taco Tuesday with these Shrimp Tacos with Blueberry Mango Slaw. Our partners at North Bay Produce created these incredible street tacos using their juicy, flavorful blueberries. A little sweet, a little salty, and a little spicy, these colorful tacos are sure to dazzle at dinnertime.

These are more than just your average tacos. Each one is filled with a rainbow of colors, an array of textures, and a fusion of flavors. Savory spiced shrimp meets the crunchy freshness of red cabbage. Creamy avocado combines with succulent blueberries. Spicy jalapeno compliments sweet mango. It’s messy goodness you can eat with your hands — just make sure you have the napkins ready! 

Shrimp Tacos with Blueberry Mango Slaw

Cook the shrimp in a skillet with all the seasonings to saturate them with flavor. When they’re done, the shrimp should be a rich golden color and crusted with bits of garlic. Two shrimp per taco strikes the right balance. 

Making the blueberry mango slaw is simple, but the results are unforgettable. It gives these tacos a freshness that can’t be matched. 

These tacos make a perfect meal for hot summer weather. Pair them with a glass of agua fresca or a tangy margarita
