Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place shrimp in a colander and place colander in a large bowl of cold water. Let shrimp sit, submerged, until thawed, about 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Drain shrimp, remove tails and skins, and transfer to a wide, shallow bowl. Add just enough milk to cover shrimp.

  • Mix almond flour, coconut flour, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Stir ranch dressing, hot pepper sauce, and lime juice together in a separate bowl.

  • Take shrimp from the milk and dredge in the flour-spice mixture, pressing firmly until evenly coated. Repeat with remaining shrimp.

  • Heat avocado oil in a deep, medium saucepan over medium heat. Lower shrimp carefully into the hot oil in batches. Fry until golden brown and the meat is opaque, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Repeat with remaining shrimp.

  • Heat black beans in a small saucepan over low heat until warm, about 5 minutes.

  • While beans are heating, spread one side of each tortilla with a thin layer of butter. Heat tortillas in a skillet over low heat until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Layer each tortilla with about 4 shrimp, black beans, diced onion, tomato, avocado, and cilantro, and drizzle ranch sauce over top.
