  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine the ranch dressing and Sriracha. Reserve refrigerated.
  2. In a separate mixing bowl, combine shrimp, salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, and lime juice. Toss to combine.
  3. Heat a saute pan over medium high heat until hot. Add olive oil, then the shrimp, and saute until pink and cooked through (about 2 to 3 minutes), turning often to cook evenly.
  4. To assemble tacos, place about 4 warm shrimp into each tortilla and top with 1 tbsp. diced mango and 1 tbsp. diced onions. Drizzle with Sriracha ranch dressing and sprinkle with chopped cilantro. Serve with lime wedges to be squeezed over top.

Tried out this recipe for dinner tonight. I didn't have limes so I used lemons. I also didn't have red pepper flakes. My husband and I thought it was delicious! Will definitely make this again.

The idea of this was appealing, and the shrimp, fruit, and cilantro were fresh and tasty on their own, but their combination was kind of underwhelming. In comparison, the Sriracha sauce was fine but overpowered the more delicate main ingredients. Not a keeper.

I tweaked this slightly and really liked the way it turned out. I have the shrimp marinade a good dash of Old Bay and some minced garlic, then let it soak in all the flavor in the refrigerator for a couple hours. For serving I included some shredded cabbage. Would gladly make this again.

I made this for my wife and I for a Mother's Day dinner and we both really enjoyed it. The sweetness of the mango with the spicy Sriracha really complimented each other. My wife said that we should have these every Mothers Day.

Made for Friday meal during Lent and paired it with the black bean cheesy quesadillas, it was a hit. both were a hit with the family. I made as is, but would highly recommend adding the srichicha sauce in small amounts and tasting, this was very spicy. We loved it, but too spicy for kiddos. Next time I will use less.
