If you read my blog often enough, you would know that tacos make me happy very happy especially when they are smothered in some kind of spicy sauce and some cool, creamy, avocado it’s a party in your mouth
Spicy Shrimp Tacos
(inspired by my favorite shrimp tacos from Mercadito)
1/4 lb raw, deveined shrimp (tails removed)about 5 medium sized shrimp per person
1 tbsp of olive oil
2 tbsp of fajita seasoning
4 tbsp of water
1 tsp of cayenne pepper
1 ripe avodcao
2-3 corn tortillas, warmed
Heat a skillet on medium high heat and add the olive oil. Once hot, add the shrimp and brown on both sides (about 2-3 minutes on each side). You will know the shrimp are done as soon as they turn a light pink color and firm to the touch.
While the shrimp is cooking, mix the water and fajita seasoning in a mixing bowl until the seasoning is dissolved. You made need to add a little more water depending on the consistency. Add about half of the sauce to the shrimp and coat well. Allow the shrimp to cool for about 2 minutes then chop into bite sized pieces.
Serve over warm corn tortillas and top with sliced avocado. Drizzle some of the remaining fajita sauce over the top. I ate them up so fast I barely had time to use my fork. I can’t wait to make these again.
