Shrimp Tacos

26 01 2011

My husband and I were sitting on the couch one night cruising the TV channels because there was nothing on and we stumbled upon a cooking show on one of the health channels.  We were instantly mesmerized by it because the host was so different than any of the other cooking shows we had seen.  He began making shrimp tacos and we both looked at each other and decided that we wanted to give it a try.  It has now become one of my favorite recipes.  It is so simple and really fast as well.

Shrimp Tacos

~1/2 lb peeled, uncooked shrimp, (31/50’s are perfect) cut into smallish pieces (I always keep a bag of frozen uncooked shrimp on hand)
~ 2 limes
~ 1/2 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
~ corn tortillas
~ shredded cabbage (I use the already shredded stuff in a bag to make things quicker)
~ 1/2 cup sour cream
~ 1 small chipotle from a can, NOT a whole can of them – just one as they’re hot, minced fine

  1. Mix well sour cream, chipotle and juice from 1/2 a lime in small bowl – set aside
  2. Heat pan well then add oil
  3. Add shrimp and stir fry quickly – the shrimp will cook fast
  4. When almost cooked, sprinkle with Old Bay then squeeze juice from half a lime on top
  5. Give ’em a quick mix and you’re done
  6. Heat up tortillas in a pan then assembly.  Spread some chipotle sour cream on a tortilla, add shrimp and cabbage, then squeeze a little more lime juice over the top.

So happy you are doing this blog and opened up a Bountiful Basket…..Now we might not see you for a while. As for those shrimp tacos, you might need to make those for Brian next time we visit. Yes, we may visit Kingmen one day again.
