Shrimp & Mango Lettuce Wrap Tacos

Shrimp lettuce wrap tacos with mango salsa & a cilantro greek yogurt sauce, this flavor combination is to die for

This dish screams summer. It’s super light, tropical, and fruity. I made my shrimp a little spicy, but that could easily be changed if you’re not a fan of spicy food. Although, the sweet mango salsa and creamy cilantro yogurt sauce really balances the spice.

Prepping this meal makes it a really easy dinner. I pre-cut my romaine boats and put together the mango salsa and cilantro greek yogurt sauce and stored them in my fridge a half hour prior to dinner. When it was time to eat, all I had to do was season the shrimp and cook them in a pan.
