Ingredients

Salsa:

  • 1 cup finely chopped pineapple
  • 1 small to medium tomato, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1 minced jalapeno pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Shrimp:

  • 1 to 1 1/2 pounds medium to large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • juice from 1 lime (2-3 tablespoons)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 6 corn tortillas for serving
  • optional garnish- guacamole, avocado slices, sour cream, cheese, jalapeño slices and/or fresh cilantro

Instructions

  • Prepare salsa by combining all salsa ingredients listed above, pineapple through honey, in a small bowl.
  • 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.
  • Transfer shrimp to skillet and cook for about 1-2 minutes on each side and until pink. Do not overcook.
  • Serve shrimp on warmed corn tortillas with salsa and any other favorite garnish. 

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.
