The BEST honey chipotle shrimp tacos served with a refreshing mango cucumber salsa. A healthy, simple, yet delicious summer dish that’s bursting with flavour and comes together in just 15 minutes!



Honey Chipotle shrimp:

  • 450g/ 1 lbs prawns (shrimp), shells removed
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons chipotle seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Olive oil spears, to cook

Mango cucumber salsa:

  • 1 cup mango, chopped
  • 1 cup cucumber, chopped
  • 1 cup capsicum, diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup coriander (cilantro) leaves, chopped
  • juice of 1 lime

8 small corn or flour tortillas, to serve


  1. Prepare Salsa: Toss all the mango cucumber salsa ingredients in a bowl and set aside until ready to assemble tacos.
  2. Cook prawns (shrimp): heat up a pan over medium-high heat with a little olive oil. Season prawns with chipotle seasoning, garlic powder and salt. Add to the pan and cook until pink. This should take about 1-2 minutes on each side*.
  3. Warm tortillas: Either warm up tortillas in the microwave or over a hot dry pan on the stovetop. I like to use a griddle pan for mine.
  4. Assemble Tacos: To assemble tacos, start with mango salsa then top with the honey chipotle prawns and fresh coriander leaves. Serve.


  • If you have any leftover honey chipotle shrimp, store them separately in the fridge in an airtight container. Your leftover shrimp (prawns) will last 3-4 days if stored properly. 
  • Leftover salsa will have a 3 day limit in the fridge. Make sure to keep it tightly covered or sealed to keep it’s freshness.
