Shrimp Tacos with Mango Pico de Gallo

I absolutely loved these. Brett on the other hand did not. He said that corn tortillas taste like paper if they are not in enchiladas and that fruit in salsa is weird. boooo. It was so good. The mango salsa (pico de gallo) tastes like the mango salsa at Cheddars.... mmmm.

Here's the delicious recipe:
