Delicious shrimp tacos

Okay, I know I said this wasn’t a food blog, and I’m definitely not a gourmet chef, but I have another (EASY) delicious recipe I want to share- shrimp tacos! I have made them for dinner twice now and Kevin and I both love them. They are quick and easy and just so damn tasty. When you’re looking for something quick and mouth-watering for you and your family, I definitely recommend giving this one a go.



2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp olive oil
1 lb white shrimp (peeled and deveined)
Corn tortillas
Shredded lettuce
1 ripe avocado, cut into slices
1 jar salsa verde
1 tomato, sliced
1 package finely shredded mixed cheese (I buy the Mexican blend, because it’s delicious, and feels authentic, obviously)
  1. Combine all 4 seasonings in a large bowl, mix and add shrimp; toss to coat (or just shake it really hard and hope for the best).
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet; add shrimp and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until fully cooked. Remove shrimp from heat.
  3. Heat tortillas (in microwave or oven- just don’t buy the flimsy, junky tortillas that fall apart immediately when you pick them up. jerks). Layer shredded lettuce, avocado, tomato and salsa verde in tortillas. Then add shrimp and top with cheese. Then stuff your face and make noises of approval to show you thoroughly enjoy what your mouth has just encountered.
I don’t have any of my own original recipes, so naturally I adapted this one just like I do all my others. Although the original didn’t have cheese, and what are tacos without cheese? Really, people.

  1. Sounds incredible (though I’ve never actually cooked shrimp and it has become something that seems more daunting than it should be). Try grilling the avocado…talk about a game changer! I once made vegetarian tacos with grilled avocado, black beans, and goat cheese. They were phenomenal!

    This is Brantley of the Brantley Blog, by the way. Since you used to be one of my favorite followers, I wanted to tell you that I’m working on a new blog called The Story in the Frame now. It’s an artistic collaboration between myself and my girlfriend (a photographer). I write short stories about her photos. Please check it out! Hope all has been well with you!

    • I will have to try the grilled avocado tip next time… don’t let the thought of cooking shrimp get to you, it’s honestly the easiest thing I’ve ever cooked (aside from not cooking anything and letting my crock pot do all the work!). Shrimp tacos make for a quick, easy meal. Really just shrimp in general is an easy meal.

      Thanks for reading! I suck at being a loyal follower, mostly because I am so busy with so many other of adulthood’s greatest chores. Which is why I barely get to write or blog anymore. So sad! But I appreciate when my followers stay in touch, so I will definitely check out your newest blogging venture! Hope all is well on your end!
