Shrimp Tacos with Corn Salsa Recipe

Serves/Makes: 8 tacos


  • 1 1/4 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 8 corn tortillas (Yes, you can use flour tortillas if you want.)
  •     For the Marinade:
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Mexican style chili powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon Chipotle Tabasco Sauce (optional)
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • Corn Salsa and Chipotle-Avocado Crema to serve (see the recipes below)
How to cook Shrimp Tacos with Corn Salsa:
  • Combine all the ingredients for the marinade in a small bowl.
  • Gently remove any tails from your shrimp.
  • Place the shrimp in a large Ziploc bag and pour in the marinade. Remove any excess air from the bag, seal and refrigerate your shrimp for at least 30 minutes.
  • Heat a large pan over medium heat. When hot, remove the shrimp from the marinade and add them to the pan. Sauté shrimp for approximately 1 minute until no longer pink. Be careful here, shrimp can take on a gross rubbery consistency if you overcook them. Don’t stress, just watch your shrimp carefully, and be sure to remove them from the pan as soon as they become opaque.
  • Microwave your corn tortillas for 15 seconds to warm them up a bit and make them pliable. Spread each tortilla with a dollop of Chipotle-Avocado Crema, top with Corn Salsa, add your shrimp (I usually go with 3 per taco). Drizzle with some more Chipotle-Avocado Crema if you’re feeling crazy.
  • Enjoy!
