Cilantro Lime Shrimp Tacos

These cilantro lime shrimp tacos are a fresh and simple weeknight dinner option. They come together in just 20 minutes!




Lime Crema:



  1. Add all shrimp ingredients to a medium bowl and stir to combine. 
  2. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add shrimp in a single layer (working in batches if necessary) and cook until pink and opaque. Expect about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove to a cutting board and repeat until all shrimp are cooked. Remove tails, then chop into small pieces. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, make crema and prep vegetables if you haven’t already. Warm corn tortillas in a bit of oil in a separate small skillet until charred and slightly bubbly. 
  4. Assemble tacos: corn tortilla, ~1/4 cup shrimp, cabbage, tomatoes, avocado, 2-3 jalapeño slices, drizzle of crema, extra cilantro. Enjoy!
