Shrimp Tacos

Last year I was on a quest for a really good shrimp taco or fish taco recipe and collected a couple to play with and see what I could come up with.  This is one of them.  The store bought sauce (click on the image for more information if you are not familiar with it) really adds to the meals we serve it with and is a personal favorite of my crew.  You don't need it though!  So don't bypass this recipe just because you see the Taco Bell sauce is mentioned.  It's just a really good condiment we discovered last summer and usually have on hand.  You can even just add some taco seasoning mix to sour cream for a easy, delicious condiment.  Play with your food.

Shrimp Tacos

2 T olive oil
1 lime, juiced and grated
1 t cumin
1 lb. large shrimp, peeled and deveined
Salt and ground black pepper
Flour Tortillas (about 6)
Sour Cream
Salsa, olives, guacamole or any other toppings you want to serve with them
Shredded cabbage and lettuce mixtured

Combine olive oil, lime juice, peel, and cumin in small bowl. Place shrimp onto skewers; season with salt and pepper. Brush shrimp with lime mixture. Grill until shrimp are cooked through, about 3 minutes per side, brushing occasionally with lime mixture. Roughly chop shrimp.

Fill each tortilla with shrimp, lettuce/cabbage and desired toppings.  (Personally we like Taco Bell's Ranchero Sauce and Jalapeno Sauce - they came out with them last summer and are in the grocery aisle by the Mexican Food section).Print Friendly and PDF
