Shrimp Tacos

I am a frequent visitor of Indigo's Sugar Spectrum. I saw this recipe and knew I had to make it immediately. There is nothing like the fresh flavors that are in this meal. If you are a shrimp fan, make this! You will love it! It would be great for Cinco de Mayo...but if you need more ideas, check out this section of the blog! There are plenty to choose from!


1 pound shrimp, shelled and deveined
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 cups cilantro
3 garlic cloves
1 lime, juiced
salt and pepper

In a food processor (or blender) blend together all ingredients, except the shrimp. Then put mixture in a large zip lock bag and add shrimp. Let marinate in fridge for an hour or two. Then fry in pan over medium high heat until shrimp is pink. 

Tangy Cilantro Lime Sauce

1 1/2 cups plain Greek yogurt
2 garlic cloves
3/4 cup cilantro
lime juice
1 chipotle pepper with a little of the adobo sauce
cayenne pepper (to taste)

Blend all ingredients in food processor and mix well.

1 onion, sliced
1 red pepper, sliced
small whole wheat tortillas (we like the Mission Carb Balance Plus)

Saute onion and pepper in a little olive oil until soft. Layer sauce, peppers, onions and shrimp on a tortilla and enjoy!

YUM! This looks and sounds delicious. I've never made them with shrimp and must try it instead of tilapia.
