Absolutely the most perfect summer meal - light, refreshing and quick!

  • 1 cup finely chopped pineapple
  • 1 small to medium tomato, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1 minced jalapeno pepper

  1. Prepare salsa by combining all salsa ingredients listed above, pineapple through honey, in a small bowl.
  2. Toss shrimp with lime juice, salt and chili powder in a medium bowl. Grease a large skillet with olive oil or spray with a nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat.
  3. Transfer shrimp to skillet and cook for about 1-2 minutes on each side and until pink. Do not overcook.
  4. Serve shrimp on warmed corn tortillas with salsa and any other favorite garnish. 

Recipe Notes

Follow package instructions for heating tortillas. I like to cook them in a heated skillet for a minute or so on each side. 

Make ahead: The pineapple salsa can be made up to 4 hours in advance.
