Mango-Radish Salsa (perfect for shrimp tacos!)

Once I got a healthy bunch of radishes in the cropshare I really had to rack my brain to decide what I actually wanted to do with them other than chop them up for salads. Greg and I searched the Food Network website to see what they had to offer in the way of radish recipes. We came across a great one for grilled shrimp with a mango, radish and lime salsa. The lightbulb went off in Greg’s head and this salsa was not only going to be made but used to perfectly dress our shrimp tacos.

Tyler Florence Mango,Lime Radish Salsa http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/tyler-florence/grilled-shrimp-with-mango-lime-and-radish-salsa-recipe/index.html . We did it a little different so what we did is below, what Tyler suggests can be found above

 Ingredients:

2 limes
1 mango, diced
4 – 5 red radishes, diced
1 red onion, diced
1 tbsp chili powder
½ bunch fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
¼ cup EVOO
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
What to do: 
Squeeze the juice from the limes into a large bowl. We used the ‘surpremes’ (the segments not including the peel and pith) from one lime. Add everything else to the bowl with the lime and mix by hand. Add a pinch of salt and pepper and you will be good to go. With any salsa, the salsa gets better with a few hours to ‘marinate’ in its juices. We usually make our salsa a few hours to a day in advance of when we want to start really using it, just to let it soak in its flavors. When you are looking to store your salsa I highly recommend a glass container with saran-wrap to top it off. I have never successfully gotten the smell of a salsa with onions in it out of plastic containers, so glass containers are highly recommended!

For the shrimp side of our tacos we used small shrimp and pan fried them in panko breading. We put the shrimp in a small tortilla topped it off with a bit of shredded lettuce and the salsa. Absolutely delicious!! This is a salsa (and meal) we are definitely going to work into ‘rotation’ at our house. It was quick and easy and the salsa was great on chips the next day too!
