  • Tuck these into flour or corn tortillas (or even turn them into a shrimp taco salad).
  • Add in lots of fresh veggies to make them healthy and flavorful!

Ingredients

SHRIMP

I use medium shrimp for these tacos and add a homemade taco seasoning. It’s easy and allows you to control the ingredients and the salt. This seasoning can be used for Fish Tacos too), so make extra to keep on hand!

You can either cook these in a pan on the stove or make grilled shrimp tacos.

TOPPINGS Instead of ordinary chopped lettuce, a tangy slaw with lime juice and mayo makes these shrimp tacos muy bueno! Most shrimp tacos with slaw are heavy on the mayonnaise, but this recipe has just enough seasonings added to add the perfect flavor.

How to Make Shrimp Tacos

For the best tasting slaw, prepare it well ahead of time and keep refrigerated so the flavors can all blend. Once the dressing is prepared, use only enough to keep the slaw coated but not soaking so it stays crisp and crunchy!

How to Cook Shrimp for Tacos

  1. Peel and devein the shrimp (and remove tails if desired). Mix with taco seasoning, garlic and lime juice.
  2. On a hot skillet or grill, cook shrimp until they are pink.
  3. Scoop slaw into warm tortillas and add shrimp and desired toppings.

Crazy easy right?! For a low-carb version, scoop slaw into a bowl and top with shrimp!

What to Put in Tacos

What can’t go into a taco?

Guacamole, sour cream, homemade salsa are great flavor enhancers!

Olives, jalapenos, and cabbage or coleslaw all make great taco toppings no matter what kind of meat is used. Create a taco bar on the patio for your next get-together and let guests can build their own taco creations…get festive and have fun!

Great Side Dishes

Anything goes with tacos, making it a simple and fun dinner. For an appetizer, serve some tortilla chips with mango salsa and pico de gallo.

Since these are Mexican inspired shrimp tacos, we add in rice and our favorite corn salad! For beverages, offer up some homemade mojitos, or a fun assortment of margaritas like mango margaritas, orange, or strawberry!
