Shrimp Tacos

  • 1 tbsp oil avocado or extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb medium shrimp peeled, deveined, tails removed
  • 16 white corn tortillas
  • 1-2 cups shredded cabbage
  • queso fresco crumbled
  • cilantro lime sauce

Taco Seasoning


  • Combine the ingredients for the taco seasoning. Pat the shrimp dry and add to a medium size bowl. Sprinkle with taco seasoning and stir to coat the shrimp.
  • Heat oil in a medium size skillet over medium heat. Lay the shrimp in the skillet spaced apart, cook in batches if needed, and allow to cook for about 2 minutes, then flip and continue to cook an additional 2-3 minutes until the shrimp is cooked through and has a pink coloring. Remove from the skillet and cook additional shrimp if needed.
  • Briefly heat corn tortillas on a skillet or in microwave, just to soften. Layer the tortillas to help prevent breaking. Fill with shredded cabbage and cooked shrimp. Top with crumbled queso fresco and a drizzle of cilantro lime cream sauce.
