shrimp tacos

If I don’t have tacos at least once a week, then my week is not going very well. If my week includes these Shrimp Tacos, then it’s going pretty swimmingly. In fact, they made me feel like I was at the beach in Mexico. Seasoned shrimp wrapped inside warm corn tortillas are improved only with a selection of toppings like you’d find at any good taquería. Chipotle cream, avocado mash and salsa are excellent options, and I’ll take all three, along with lime, cilantro and shredded lettuce.

I did take a cheater step and bought a container of pico de gallo from my local gourmet shop. They make it in-house each day and dice all the ingredients very fine, so they probably do it better than I would, even though I always add some extra salt, lime juice and spice. Here, I also supplemented it with some diced pineapple and bell pepper to make it more in line with the fruity salsa in Dorie’s recipe.

This is so fresh and flavorful and feels so healthy. It’s a great summer dinner, best with a cold beer, or if you’re still feeling ambitious after making all the bits and pieces, a zingy margarita.

For the recipe, see Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan, and head over to Cook the Book Fridays to see how the group liked this one.
