To assemble the tacos

Lay out all of the ingredients to allow for easy assembly.

Heat a pan over medium heat to heat your tortillas. If you like your tortillas to be crispy, let them heat for about three minutes on one side, flip and heat for an additional minute or so. (Note: To keep the tortilla from getting too crispy, heat only one side for a longer amount of time.)

Fill the tortillas as they come off of the pan to prevent them from trapping any moisture from sitting.

Layer in the cabbage, shrimp, mango salsa, avocado, cilantro cream, Cotija cheese, serranoes and cilantro.
