Shrimp Tacos

I absolutely LOVE these shrimp tacos! Matter of fact, I make them a few times a week after work because they’re so quick and delicious. Hint: I use these same components to top a romaine salad and that’s equally delicious!

If you don’t have shrimp, use any seafood you have on hand – I swap out shrimp with frozen cod or salmon fillets in my freezer. Stewed beans are my go to beans and you literally throw everything in the pan and let them simmer.

Shrimp Tacos

  • Shrimp, salmon, or cod filets
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Chipotle powder
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp coriander
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional Toppings: avocado, pickled cabbage, plain cabbage, sliced jalapeños

Stewed Black Beans

  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 tbsp adobo sauce (1 adobo pepper mashed with a fork if you like it spicy!!)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Lima Crema

  • 2 tbsp plain Greek yogurt
  • Zest & Juice 1 lime
  • 1 tsp mayo
  • Dash or 2 of chipotle or cayenne pepper powder
  1. With a hot pan, add the olive oil and whatever seafood you’re using. Sprinkle the chipotle powder, cumin, coriander, garlic powder and salt and pepper on top. Cook just a couple minutes on each side depending on which seafood you chose.
  2. In a separate pan on medium heat add the beans, adobo sauce (and pepper if you like the spice), garlic powder, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Stir until combined and let simmer for 8-10 minutes until thick.
  3. While the beans are cooking, mix together in a small bowl the yogurt, lime zest and juice, mayo and chipotle or cayenne powder and mix until combined. Depending on how much lime juice your lime gave you – I add a tsp of water to loosen the crema up a little bit so its drizzles easier over your taco.
  4. When your seafood and beans are done cooking – its time to assemble!
  5. Take a tortilla and add your seafood and beans. Top with your favorite taco toppings and drizzle with the lime crema!

This is one of my FAVORITE taco recipes – if you make it, I’d love to know what you think! Comment or tag me on social media!
