Shrimp Tacos are one of my son-in-laws go to recipes - he's an expert at grilling shrimp! He also puts out a bowl of shredded cabbage for some crunch in the tacos, and a sour cream lime sauce. (Just sour cream - or plain greek yogurt - with grated lime zest and some lime juice.) Try this variation!
I hate to cook, so a fast meal like this that everyone loved was perfect. Like others here, I agree on the issue of frying. What an unecessary addition of fat and calories to an otherwise healthy meal! I tossed the shrimp with some ancho chili powder and sauteed with just non-stick spray, then warmed the tortillas over the flame of the stove. We squeezed lime over everything and the meal was fabulous. I also think grilled shrimp would be fantastic and perfect for a family like us, all working on eating healthier.
I really wasn't sure about this one. Reading it through was not exciting. But having found the earlier dishes to be fantastic, I followed the recipe exactly and am glad I did. Everything pulls together beautifully. I wondered about frying the shrimp. Frying is not something I do, but with the oil heated to top temp before smoking, and blotting the heck out of the shrimp before serving left us with lovely, crisp coating and tender meat in the middle. And not greasy at all!
These were really tasty. I added store bought pico de gallo and lime on mine and they were great. I also added lime to the beans because they were a bit plain.
I'm going to make this with grilled shrimp this weekend...I think it will be much tastier! :-)
Ish. Why does this have to be fried? I bet this would be just as good baked.
