Spicy Shrimp Tacos

Hey, y’all! Beth here, this is my first blog post on AllIDoIsCook, and I’m so excited to be contributing this delicious Spicy Shrimp Taco recipe as my first!

Y’all know I had to come in with a bang, so when I say it’s spicy, trust me, these tacos are Spicy Good!

As a Houston girl, Tacos have become one of my favorite dishes. Nothing beats the good old $1 Taco Truck Tacos, but when I cannot get to the trucks, these Spicy Shrimp Tacos are one of my favorite ways to enjoy them at home.

Before we go too far, Corn Tortillas >>>>> Flour tortillas, I’m ready to debate this any day.

Anyway, let’s start with a run-through of this recipe. This Spicy Shrimp Tacos recipe is a 3-in-1 because I snuck in a creamy mango dressing recipe and a guac. recipe (shh, don’t tell anyone).

For the Tacos, you will need:

2 Tortillas (Corn or Flour)

1 lb Shrimp

1 Tbsp Rodo Crisps

2 Tbsp Rodo Oil

1/2 tsp Garlic Powder

1/2 tsp Ginger Powder

2 tsp Paprika

1 tsp Onion Powder

Salt (to taste)

Knorr – optional

Cabbage &  Carrot Slaw

For the Creamy Mango Dressing, you will need:

3 Scoops of Sour Cream

1/2 a Mango

2 Cloves of Garlic

1 Green Onion

For the Guac., you will need:

1 Small Avocado

1/2 Lime

1/4 Jalapeño

1/4 Red Onion

Handful Cilantro

Salt (to taste)

  6. Warm your tortilla in a dry pan and assemble your Spicy Shrimp Tacos. This is my fav order – Tortilla – guac – cabbage – shrimp – sauce. If you have some onions, jalapeno & cilantro mix left, sprinkle that on. Chef’s kiss, ENJOY!Plated spicy shrimp Taco
