Jerk Shrimp Tacos with Melon Salsa

Jerk shrimp tacos with melon salsa… yummmm! The pairing of spicy shrimp and cool melon is a match made in heaven.

These tacos are out of this world! Full of flavor with the jerk seasoning and the amazing mango salsa!This combination makes a mean taco, but it can just as easily be served over  a bed of baby greens. It is very easy to make and is just as appropriate for a weeknight meal as it is for a dinner party. And shopping for all the ingredients was simple at Trader Joe’s!

melon salsaWhen I made this recipe this week, I worked on the salsa while the grill was heating up.

The shrimp only takes about five minutes to grill.

While the shrimp was grilling, I basted it with the extra jerk marinade.
