I wanted to make something that was light and easy, but would not have me stuck in the kitchen for the whole game… that’s when I remembered this recipe,, these are so good and so easy :)
Super Simple Shrimp Tacos
- 1 lb of frozen shrimp, defrosted, peeled, & deveined
- 6 oz fat free Greek yogurt
- ¼ cup chopped cilantro
- 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
- 1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- ½ a head of cabbage, thinly sliced (about 5 cups)
- 8 corn tortillas
- 4 tsp extra virgin olive oil
- 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 taco, then top with shrimp, and cilantro sauce… enjoy!
