Spicy Grilled Shrimp Tacos with Fresh Pineapple Salsa

It's been a while since I've made these yummy tacos and with it being Lent and all I figured tonight was a good night to make them. I love the sweet and spicy combo. I served these tacos with a side of black beans and chips and salsa. They also go great with a nice Margarita! :)

Spicy Grilled Shrimp Tacos with Fresh Pineapple Salsa
Adapted From

For the Shrimp
1/2 clove garlic
1 tsp. coarse salt (if you use regular it will be way too salty)
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. paprika
1 T. olive oil
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 lb. large shrimp, peeled and de-veined

Preheat grill for medium heat. In a small bowl crush garlic with the salt. Mix in cayenne pepper and paprika and then stir in olive oil and lemon juice to make a paste. Toss the shrimp with the sauce until coated. Lightly oil the grill grate. Cook shrimp 2 to 3 minutes per side or until opaque.

Pineapple Salsa

4 cups diced pineapple pieces
5 scallions diced thin
1 large tomato diced
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
juice of one lemon
juice of 2 limes
1 jalapeno, diced (take out seeds and core so it's not too hot)
Salt and pepper to taste.
Mix everything and let the flavors blend for 30 minutes in the fridge

To complete the tacos add 3-4 shrimp on a flour tortilla along with some shredded cheese. (optional) Top with pineapple salsa. Enjoy!
