I’ve mentioned my love of frozen raw shrimp before. Purchase them on sale (usually buy one/get one), use what you need, keep the rest frozen for a future meal!
Need dinner in less than 30 minutes? Who doesn’t.
What I love most about these simple grilled chili shrimp soft tacos is that dinner’s basically ready once the shrimp are seared – so, like, 5 minutes.
I mean, you can’t grab fast food any quicker than that! The shrimp are a little crispy around the edges, but melt in your mouth with each bite (a really hot pan can be thanked for that).
Here’s one of my go-to recipes that start with those shrimp!
- 24 large shrimp (thawed, peeled & tails removed)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 6 flour tortillas
- 1 small tomato, diced
- 1/2 medium onion, diced
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup seasoned rice*
- 1 14.5 ounce can refried beans, warmed
- 1/4 cup sour cream
*Seasoned rice in our house includes parsley or cilantro, garlic salt, pepper - add while fluffing the rice after it's cooked.
