I’m loving having time in the kitchen again so I couldn’t resist sharing a recipe.
How about one more ftifam summer get together?
You’re all invited to my house for an evening of friends, chatting, margaritas and tacos which, of course, must be served with a side of guacamole and chips. That’s right. No workout. Just sitting out on the deck enjoying the, recently, cooler evening, hanging out and relaxing with friends.
Wait. You do like seafood tacos, don’t you? What? You’ve never tried them? Living in the mid-west I’ve learned that seafood tacos sometimes have a “that’s weird” and “I would never eat that” reaction. You simply have to try this recipe. I can almost guarantee you’re going to love it.
It was in Southern California where my love for shrimp (and fish) tacos began. My kids started eating them when they were little and the flavorful mix of grilled shrimp, cabbage and pico de gallo with fresh squeezed lime quickly became a family favorite.
Fast forward. We moved to Ohio and it wasn’t long before we found out that good shrimp tacos are really hard to find. No, make that impossible to find. Eating seafood tacos only when we go to California to visit wasn’t an option. The only logical choice was to create my own recipe.
A healthy and easy to prepare meal that family and friends will enjoy.
- 1 1/2 pounds shrimp
- 8 warm gluten free corn tortillas
- cabbage, shredded
- pico de gallo
- fresh lime juice
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon organo
- 1 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- Combine all the spices in a small container with a lid. Shake to mix well.
- In a large bowl combine the shrimp with the spice mixture and toss to evenly coat with the seasoning.
- Skewer the shrimp. Spray the grill with cooking spray. Grill the shrimp on medium heat about 1 1/2 - 2 minutes on each side.
- Warm the tortillas.
- Divide the shrimp among the 8 corn tortillas and top with cabbage, pico de gallo and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
- Serve with a side of fresh guacamole and tortilla chips.
Looks delicious, right?
Next week’s [optional] topic:
Jess and I have been looking forward to this topic for months. My morning routine has undergone a few changes over the past few weeks due to a work schedule change. No worries, It still starts my day with a calm, relaxed determination and a positive mindset. It will always be my favorite time of day.
Fill your day with positive energy and a never give up attitude!
I can’t wait to see a glimpse of a day in your life.
Have you tried seafood tacos? Do you like them? What kind of tacos would your rather I serve?
be the best version of YOU
