Teresa’s Man-Pleasing Recipe – Shrimp Tacos
This recipe is for both seafood and taco lovers. It combines the best of both worlds!I don’t have a lot of time to spend making dinner during the week because I have to go to bed so early to do the KLAQ Morning Show. I look for quick and easy recipes to make, but they also have to be delicious to please my man. He works hard all day and deserves to come home to a delicious dinner, and hopefully there are leftovers for his lunch the next day. He loved these shrimp tacos!
I make the sauce for the tacos first. Mix together one cup Greek yogurt, (or sour cream) the juice of one lime, cayenne pepper and salt to taste, and about 1/4 cup chopped cilantro. Set that aside.
Thinly slice a half head of cabbage and saute in olive oil just until slightly wilted.
I get a bag of frozen shrimp for $5 at Walmart. You will need to defrost, take the tails off and cut them into thirds. Cook the shrimp in a bit of olive oil over medium heat until done. Keep an eye on the shrimp, it cooks quickly.
Heat your tortillas any way you like, microwave, over a gas stove, or a warm skillet all work well. I like to use the Mission Artisan Whole Wheat and Corn combination tortillas. They are a bit larger than regular corn tortillas and better for you!
Time to make the tacos! Put a scoop of cabbage on the tortillas, add shrimp and cilantro sauce. This recipe makes 6 large tacos. You can substitute fish sticks for the shrimp for an even easier dinner. Enjoy!
