Super Simple Shrimp Tacos
These simple shrimp tacos are a quick and easy dinner option that features tender shrimp, slaw, and creamy cilantro lime sauce, all inside warm corn tortillas. This is my favorite way to do taco night!
Servings: 4 servings
- 8 corn tortillas
- 6 oz fat free Greek yogurt
- 1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
- 4 tsp extra virgin olive oil divided
- 1/2 a head of cabbage thinly sliced (about 5 cups)
- 1 lb shrimp defrosted if frozen, peeled, & deveined
- Salt and pepper to taste
Heat tortillas over medium heat in a dry skillet until warm and starting to form small brown spots. Set aside on a plate covered with a clean kitchen towel.
Mix yogurt, cayenne, lime juice, cilantro, & salt in a small bowl, set aside.
Heat two teaspoons of olive oil in a medium non-stick skillet and add cabbage. Cook for about four minutes or until the cabbage is just barely wilted. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
Cut shrimp into thirds, so you have little bite size pieces. Sauté in two teaspoons of olive oil and season with salt, pepper and a dash of cayenne pepper over medium heat just until done. They cook up in just a few minutes so be sure to watch them!
Build your taco! Place a scoop of cabbage on the warmed tortillas, then top with shrimp, and cilantro sauce. Enjoy!
