I really don’t care for tacos.

Said no one EVER.

So here’s another recipe released from my 3-week meal plan, and it’s definitely one of my personal favorites. Because, tacos.

Shrimp Tacos with Cilantro Lime Sauce

Serves: 3
Times: 20 minutes


  • 1 lb. fresh or frozen shrimp (if frozen, thaw before using)

  • 6 corn tortillas

  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp paprika

  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

  • 1 tsp cumin

  • Pinch of salt and pepper

  • Avocado for topping

For the sauce:

  • 1 cup green or purple cabbage

  • 1 cup shredded carrots

  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions

  • 3 Tbsp. sour cream or Greek yogurt or 2 Tbsp. olive oil

  • Juice from 1 lime

  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro

  • salt to taste

  • Pinch of cayenne (optional)

Mix the spices together in a small bowl. Saute or grill the shrimp over medium heat with olive oil and spices until cooked through. In a medium sized bowl, stir together all the slaw ingredients. Serve shrimp and slaw in corn tortillas and top with avocado slices.

Try and eat just 2. I dare you.
