Remember those pork meatballs with mango mustard sauce I made a couple weeks ago? Well, here is the good news. I made it past the first round of the cooking contest! The summer of Brandy continues!

For this round we had to make an entree dish using the contest ingredient {Saucy Mama mustard} and the secret ingredient, beans. I think I totally nailed these shrimp tacos with chili mustard aioli AND a sweet mango black bean salsa.. I hate saying that because I feel like I’m tooting my own horn but seriously they are delicious.

I started off by marinating the shrimp in coconut milk, chili garlic sauce, garlic mustard, ginger and lime. This was one awesome smelling marinade. Plus I just really love using coconut milk. This is going to sound weird but I love it’s creamy consistency. I’m also a big fan of it’s healthy fat and delicious flavor. I cooked my shrimp in a pan but they would be amazing cooked on the grill too. It was raining the day I went to make my shrimp and was not going to stand outside to grill. I’m not that devoted.

The salsa was just a simple mixture of mangoes, black beans, red onion, cilantro and lime. It’s amazing how a few ingredients can come together and make such amazing flavors. To top it all off I made a aioli out of the same chili garlic sauce and mustard I used in the marinade.

Man I really need a taco after writing this. Too bad it’s 3am and not really taco eating time…

    I’ve never heard of a chili garlic sauce – where in a grocery store would I look for this, or is it found in a specialty store? I would really like to try this recipe…your photo makes me hungry!

      Hi Cindy! You can find chili garlic sauce in the Thai/Asain section of your grocery store. You can normally find it next to the Sriracha. It’s should be in a clear plastic container with (normally) a green lid. It’s a little chunky in appearance. I hope you can find it!
