I found some nice shrimp on sale this morning.
U13 size for less that what lean ground beef costs.
Kinda on a “taco” trip lately, so I’m going to make some shrimp tocos on the griddle.
I’ll spare y’all most of the boring details and just post a picture when they are done.
I’m marinating the shrimp quickly in a mixture of Cilantro, Garlic, and Lime Juice. Needs to be quick, as you don’t want the Lime to start cooking the shrimp.
I’ll serve on a tortilla over a simple slaw (cabbage, carrot, red onion)
Splash of this for the slaw dressing.
I’ve made a southwest style dressing from avocado & Mayo with some seasonings for the Tacos.
I’ll edit for a picture or two when finished.
I did hit the slaw with just a bit of sugar prior to adding the dressing.
I’m not a huge fan of cabbage/slaw but it goes well on fish/shrimp tacos, and this variation it’s actually pretty good.
These are the shrimp just out of the marinade.
I hit them with some spice just prior to putting them on the griddle.
Right at the end of the cook (very hot/very fast), I used the juice of a lime to deglaze the griddle.
These were really big shrimp, it was silliness to attempt stuffing 5 of them into 1 taco.
The end result was very satisfying.
