  • Bring 1 quart of water to a boil in a large pot. Place shrimp and crab in a steamer basket on top of the pot without touching water; cover. Steam until shrimp are pink and cooked through, about 5 minutes.

  • Remove shrimp and crab meat from steamer and chop. Combine seafood mixture and cream cheese in a bowl. Lay taco shells on a baking sheet and top with seafood-cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is completely melted, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven.

  • Cut each taco into 4 pieces using a pizza cutter and top with sour cream and salsa.

Cook's Note:

You can use 4-cheese Mexican blend instead of Cheddar cheese.
