There is no question that shrimp is the most commonly consumed seafood in the United States. I would attribute that to the fact that shrimp is readily available, it's relatively simple to prepare and there are health benefits to eating it. Not to mention the fact that it's DELICIOUS. Ever since discovering a local store that stocks fresh wild caught shrimp from the coast of Georgia - I cannot seem to get enough to these yummy crustaceans.
If you love shrimp as much as I do, these crispy shrimp tacos are a great way to enjoy the seafood that we love. This recipe comes together quickly and it is really tasty.
Crispy Shrimp Tacos
2 tomatoes, chopped Toppings
1 onion, chopped shredded lettuce
1 jalapeno, minced sliced avocado
2 Tablespoons ketchup fresh cilantro
1 Tablespoon lime juice hot sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and cut into 1/2" pieces
5 tablespoons oil
8 flour tortillas
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
You can garnish these tacos with lettuce, avocado, cilantro and hot sauce or in my case, a couple of ripe, red strawberries and a couple slices of avocado.
One of the best parts about living within a few hours of the Georgia coast is the fact that we can take weekend trips to get our fill of delicious, fresh caught shrimp. Ben and I took a trip to Jekyll Island last month and my goal was to eat shrimp at every single meal that I ate while on the island. (I take my shrimp eating seriously, friends) I didn't take any pictures of the shrimp that I consumed while I was there - mostly because I ate it the instant that it was put in front of me - but I did get a few pictures of the beach. Hope you enjoy.
