When I was growing up, one of my favorite fast-foods was tacos!
I loved everything about tacos: the choice of protein cooked in hot spices, the tangy slaw, the creamy guacamole, a dollop of sour cream or salsa…
Everything about a taco works. It’s a brilliant little delicious creation stuffed into a tortilla.
I still LOVE tacos to this day.
Except, now, I don’t go to the local fast-food joint for them, I mostly prepare them at home.
You can choose any protein for these tacos: tofu, beef, pork, chicken, fish.
I chose shrimp, because they are so easy to make.
So, if you’re short on time and want a quick meal, try these yummy Shrimp Tacos.
I like to stuff them with my Smoky Spicy Slaw (recipe here)
- 1 pound medium or large wild shrimp, peeled and deveined (frozen or fresh)
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 tsp. chili powder
- 1 tsp. ground cumin
- ½ tsp. sea salt
- ½ tsp. chipotle powder
- 2 dashes cayenne pepper (optional)
- Smoky Spicy Slaw
- 6 organic corn or flour tortillas
- Combine the salt and spices and coat the shrimp.
- In a frying pan, heat olive oil on medium/high and add shrimp.
- Cook 2-3 minutes on each side.
- Remove the shrimp from the pan and set aside.
- Either roast the tortillas in the oven, or dry roast in a frying pan to get the desired texture.
- Put 3-4 shrimp into each tortilla and top with Spicy Slaw.
- You can also add a dollop of guacamole, salsa or sour cream.
