To prepare salsa: Combine tomato, onion, jalapeno, lime juice to taste, kosher salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Stir in avocado and cilantro. Add cayenne (if using).

To prepare tacos: Combine flour, cumin, salt and cayenne in a medium bowl. Whisk in beer to create a batter.

Coat shrimp pieces in the batter. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Letting excess batter drip back into the bowl, add the shrimp to the pan; cook until crispy and golden, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Serve the shrimp with tortillas and the salsa.

Tonight, I’m serving these shrimp tacos with a black bean mango salad and fresh fruit compote
