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.

Simple, yet delicious. Can definitely add condiments and sauces of your choosing to compliment it. Very flavorful and will make this again when in a pinch for a taco night. Read More

Loved this. I did add some chopped onions to the garlic sauté and made the mistake of using 8” tortillas instead of the smaller, taco ones. Use the taco ones! They are more conducive to this simple but flavorful shrimp taco recipe. And yes! Have avocados chopped for topping. Perhaps even pickled red onion. Or? Using a bag of coleslaw mix, make Lick-the-Spoon Cilantro Jalapeno Aioli from this site and pour that over the coleslaw and serve with these shrimp tacos! Amazing!! Will make again and again!! Thank you! Read More

This has become a family favorite! Made it several times, and it is on top of the request list when the kids are home. Went heavier on the garlic and chili powder, as well as adding avocado pieces and onion to the final taco. Use two corn tortillas for each taco like our favorite resuraunts. 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

This was a big hit with the family. It's already been requested again. My daughter said she likes this better then the shrimp tacos she orders out. I made the recipe exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. This is a keeper. 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

We love shrimp tacos and these were great! I used butter instead of oil and topped with a spicy sour cream, cabbage slaw and cotija cheese. For the spicy sour cream I just mixed some sour cream with lime juice, smoked paprika, garlic powder and salt and pepper. Such a good way weeknight dinner! Read More
