WHY MAKE THIS RECIPE?
This shrimp tacos recipe with cabbage will knock your socks off. Add no spice or a lot of spice for the perfect taco Tuesday dinner!
1 lb shrimp 2 tbsp taco seasoning 1 c cheddar cheese 2 tomatoes 2 c lettuce 1 c red cabbage 1 bunch green onions 1 c guacamole 1 jalapeno 1/2 c salsa 8 flour tortillas lime weges and cilantro
Place the shrimp in a rimmed, shallow pan. Drizzle olive oil over top of the shrimp and toss to coat. Spoon the taco seasoning evenly over the shrimp. Let sit in pan for 5 minutes.
Pour the contents of the pan into a skillet. Cook the shrimp for 3-5 minutes, or until shrimp are heated through. Transfer to a medium bowl (include liquid).
Place a warmed tortilla on a plate and top with shrimp, cheese (if using), tomatoes, lettuce, shredded cabbage, onions, guacamole, jalapenos and salsa. Squeeze fresh lime juice over tops.
Consider making a homemade cabbage slaw by combining different types of cabbage and mixing with olive oil or vegetable oil, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper.
Shrimp cooks very quickly, so keep a close eye to ensure it does not overcook, especially when using a pre-cooked variety.
I often omit the cheese from these tacos because cilantro lime sauce adds the perfect amount of flavor.
