Once I did I realized I was missing out on some amazingly flavored healthy dinner recipes. 

They are packed full of high-quality protein, healthy fats and low on carbs. 

Add this one to your carb cycling recipes. 

This is a perfect recipe to fit into your healthy eating meal plans. 

Give this a try and let me know if you like it as much as I do.  It is also a great way to satisfy that sweet taste.  It works as a sugar buster to break any sugar addiction. It has a very nice sweet tasting compliment to it without all the actual sugar.  

Shrimp Tacos


1 mango, peeled, pitted and cubed
1 avocado, pitted, peeled and cubed
1/2 red onion finely chopped
Juice of 1 lime
chopped fresh cilantro
1 pound peeled, deveined shrimp
1 Tbsp blackening spice
8 Corn tortillas
2 cups finely shredded red cabbage
Salt and black pepper

Blackening spice:

1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp cayenne
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp black pepper

Mix together into a spice which then you will use to sprinkle on the fish before you cook it.

1. Mix the mango, avocado, onion and the juice of 1 lime in a bowl. Season with cilantro, salt, and pepper.

2. Heat a stovetop pan until hot and drizzle a light coating of oil over the shrimp and rub on the blackening spice. Cook the shrimp for 2-4 minutes or until they start to turn a white translucent color.

3. Warm the tortillas

4. Divide among the warm tortillas. Top with the cabbage and mango salsa.

Note: You can also use pineapple and peaches in place of the mango or together to add even more flavor to the salsa.
