I kind of have a thing for shrimp tacos, if you haven’t already figured out.

I love shrimp tacos- they are fast, easy, lower calorie, and SO delicious.

I’ve posted recipes for Habanero and Tomatillo Shrimp Tacos, Shrimp Fajita Lettuce Wraps, and a ton of other delicious shrimp dishes!

These are perfect for taco bars, impromptu dinner parties, or just weeknight meals.

 

These shrimp tacos are so delicious- and FAST!

 

Be sure to slowly heat the peppers and onions and really brown them well- it adds a lovely, rich caramel flavor to the tacos without adding extra calories!

Love these festive fajita style tacos!

 

Once the peppers and onions are cooked, toss the shrimp right over them! This helps to develop flavor even more- and lets them soak up some of the great onion and pepper aromas!

 

These delicious and easy shrimp tacos are my favorite!

 

Lastly, to make this an even more special dinner, I like to heat up the uncooked tortillas I grab at the grocery store. They are soft, chewy, and so easy to work with- not dry like a lot of tortillas can taste!

 

I love fresh cooked tortillas for shrimp tacos!

  1. My hubby is always wanting to omit something from his food. This week it was onion, so I added corn and a pinch of mince garlic and chopped onions on the side for me. We both were happy, Absolutely delish. Thank you for your post
