Shrimp Tacos for Two

My favorite food in the world is shrimp. Baked shrimp, fried shrimp, boiled shrimp, shrimp gumbo, shrimp on the barbie, shrimp cocktail, shrimp pasta, shrimp enchiladas, curry shrimp, sauteed shrimp, breaded shrimp, shrimp ceviche, shrimp sushi, and best of all shrimp tacos. Yum! Yum!

sliced cabbage
1 diced tomato
1/2 diced onion
Place two handfuls of sliced cabbage, diced tomato, and diced onion on a plate in the middle of the table. Top with a handful of chopped cilantro.


hot sauce
Put out a small bowl of each condiment:
- salsa (preferably Emerald City)
- jalapenos (preferably Mrs Renfros)
- julienned cucumbers (optional)
- crumbled feta (optional)

Put a bottle of your favorite hot sauce (preferably Cholula) on the table.

12 shrimp
1 T olive oil
1 T chili powder
Peel the shrimp (size: 31-40 per pound), remove tails, set aside. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium high heat. Saute the shrimp in the frying pan until opaque on one side. Lower the temperature of the frying pan and turn the shrimp over.

Add the chili powder (preferably Gebharts), stir to coat. If you need to add a little water that's okay.

Do not over cook! This process takes less that five minutes.

4 corn tortillasFry the corn tortillas in a smidgeon of olive oil on each side or wrap them in a plastic bag and microwave them or 20-30 seconds.

Place two tortillas on each plate and fill each tortilla with three shrimp apiece. Bring to the table for an authentic Mexican dinner.

Muy Bueno!
