These cilantro shrimp tacos are sort of a work in progress; I've only made it twice, so I haven't had much time to try different methods. I made it one day when trying to think of something to make for dinner, and I thought it turned out really well. I think it can be easily adjusted to suit different tastes. Serve with lime wedges.

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic; cook until golden, about 2 minutes. Add shrimp, about 1/3 of the cilantro, seasoned salt, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Mix well and cook until mixture is heated through and shrimp is opaque, 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Heat remaining olive oil in a separate skillet over medium heat. Add 1 corn tortilla at a time and cook until warm and slightly crispy, about 90 seconds each.

  • Spoon shrimp mixture onto tortillas and serve with remaining cilantro.

Have made this twice so far, and tonight will be the third time in a month. Has become a family favorite. We tweak it a little with onion and avocado pieces on the tacos, and more garlic, but have really left the recipe alone. Works great as it is. Love it. Read More

I made this last night as a quick what do I make for dinner solution. I used Old Bay Seasonings instead of seasoning salt because that was what I had and followed everything else for the recipe. It was really good and got zero complaints from the family. I m saving this one for sure! Read More

Very tasty! I don’t keep seasoned salt so I used a little of Emeril’s Essence (Bam!) and a little salt. I garnished with avocado slices. Fast, easy and yum! Read More
