#SundaySupper: Shrimp Tacos

#SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back supper around the family table in every home.  This week the theme is Mexican fiesta.

I love shrimp and I love tacos, but I had never had shrimp tacos.  I was a little apprehensive, but when I received this recipe from one of my foodie pen pals I had to try it.  And this round up seemed like a great time to experiment with the recipe.

This was so easy to make.  All you do is mix everything up and then heat it up, for about 5 minutes, then you are done.  No complaints here!  This will probably be a recipe that I start to make on a regular basis.

I made the salsa earlier this summer.  It worked really great with these tacos.  I am really happy with how that salsa turned out.  I will have to make a bigger batch next year.

Shrimp Tacos

This recipe is adapted from Scarborough Food Fair.


  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • some cilantro
  • flour tortillas
  • toppings as you desire; salsa, cheese, onions, tomatoes, etc


1. Prepare shrimp by combining the garlic, lime juice, cumin, cayenne, and olive oil with the shrimp and let marinate for 15-20 minutes in the refrigerator.

2. Cook the shrimp on a skillet until both sides are cooked.  This only takes a few minutes.

3. Warm tortillas and assemble tacos.  Enjoy!!!

  21. Oh, I love shrimp tacos. I really like that your recipe is fairly simple too, would make a quick dinner. Oh, and your apprehension sounds like mine when I heard of fish tacos…I liked fish, and I liked tacos, but hearing of the two together…well, I wasn’t so sure, but they are great!
