Taco night is every night of the week with this tasty and easy shrimp taco recipe, you can have it ready in less than 15 minutes.
Time: 15 minutes
500 g shrimp cooked or uncooked, peeled, deveined, and tail off
Sat and pepper to taste
Paprika or Cajun seasoning
2-4 tbsp Chilmili Chipotle Mayo
1 cup shredded red or white cabbage
1/2 diced avocado (optional)
Finely chopped cilantro
1 or 2 lime
Prepare your ingredients, chop the onion, shred the cabbage, dice the avocado, finely chop the cilantro, and cut the lime in wedges.
Have your raw or cooked shrimp peeled, deveined, and tail off. Proceed to place a large skillet on medium-high.
Add about 2 or 3 tablespoons of olive oil along with the onion and sauté for about 1 minute until slightly golden. Then add the raw shrimp and cook for about 3-5 minutes on each side. Season with Paprika or Cajun seasoning. Make sure they become pink evenly and a little bit crispy. If you are using pre-cooked shrimp you are just looking for the shrimp to sauté for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Add salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
Warm-up your tortillas on a medium-high preheated pan. Cook the tortilla for about 1-2 minutes on each side. It should be soft and flexible when you flip it. Repeat the process with the rest of the tortillas, and keep them aside in a tortilla basket or tortilla cloth.
Once the tortillas and shrimp are done cooking, serve your tacos by placing 2 or 3 tablespoons of shrimp, add cilantro, avocado, and shredded cabbage. You can even add finely chopped jalapeño or any other garnishing you like. Add Chilmili Chipotle Mayo sauce to taste. Finally, squeeze some lime juice on your taco, and buen provecho!
