<h2> Directions:

- Start by mixing together all of the mango salsa ingredients until combined. Then set it aside.

- Make the sauce by mixing together all of the sauce ingredients. You can also blend the sauce so the cilantro mixes through, but it will be thinner than mixing by hand. Taste and add more salt if needed. 

- Heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Mix together paprika, garlic powder, cumin, and salt and coat the shrimp evenly on both sides with the spice mixture.

Sauté for just a minute or two, flipping halfway, until the shrimp are pink and have curled up. Then transfer to a plate and top with lime juice. 

- Assemble the tacos with shrimp, mango salsa, a little yogurt if desired, and any additional toppings of choice.
