Shrimp TacosApril 18, 2011
Recently I made shrimp tacos. I was trying to come up with something quick to make, and wasn’t craving pasta and shrimp and I had a revelation: Shrimp Tacos. Done.
I originally was going to just use a package of fajita seasoning, but as I read the ingredients, I thought, “this sounds gross. I could make something better myself.” So here we go:
-One bag of frozen shrimp (peeled and defrosted)
-Extra Virgin Olive Oil
-1 teaspoon Salt
-1 tablespoon Pepper
-1 1/2 tablespoons Onion Powder
-1 tablespoon Garlic Salt
-2 teaspoons Ground Cumin
-1 tablespoon Chili Powder
Heat enough olive oil to cover the bottom of your pan until warm. Add peeled shrimp. Add the rest of the ingredients. You can adjust the ingredients to whatever flavors you like most. I find the ground cumin really gives it that fajita flavor, but too much destroys the meal. Start with a little, you can always add more. I cooked some cherry tomatoes with the shrimp too, delicious.
I put my shrimp on a flour tortilla with lettuce and cheese. It’s a nice, fresh, and pretty healthy meal. I’ll probably bring the shrimp to heat up on a salad tomorrow at lunch!
