I've seen a recipe for shrimp tacos floating around in a couple of different spots. I made it a few weeks ago and they were so yummy (keeping up with my June goal to eat more fish). I decided to make them again and change a few things up.
First i whipped up this cilantro lime yogurt sauce and let it sit. It's greek yogurt, cilantro, lime juice, lime zest and salt & pepper.
Next, I seasoned up a pound of raw shrimp with salt, pepper, cumin and cayenne pepper and let it sit for a bit.
While that was sitting, I heated some small corn tortillas on dry skillet, just to brown them a bit.
Finally, I dressed some spinach with olive oil, lime juice, salt and pepper.
Cook the shrimp for about 5 minutes just until cooked through. Now, just assemble everything and enjoy!
Here is the recipe: (adapted from this one)
1 lb uncooked, devained shrimp (medium or large)
6 oz. greek yogurt, plain
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 cup shredded spinach
1 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste
3 Tbs olive oil
small corn tortillas.
Mix yogurt, juice and zest from lime, cilantro and salt and pepper to taste in a bowl. Season shrimp with cumin, cayenne and salt and pepper. (cut shrimp in smaller pieces if desired). Heat corn tortillas on dry skillet until slightly browned. Heat 2 Tbs olive oil in skillet on medium heat. Cook shrimp until opaque, about 5 minutes. Don't over cook or they will be rubbery! Dress spinach in 1 Tbs olive oil, 1 Tbs lime juice and salt and pepper. Put everything together on tortillas and enjoy!
Now, here are my top three favorites from last week's Ginger Jamboree party!
I'm digging this ombre orange dresser from Silver Boxes. I want an orange piece of furniture in my house!
This 4th of July Necktie invitation from Jac o' lyn Murphy is so cute! I could also see it as a boy baby shower or even graduation invite!
Finally, I'm amazed that this laundry room makeover from Lewisville Love was only $30! I'm always very jealous of laundry room makeovers because I don't have a laundry room at all!
