Shrimp Tacos

Shrimp Tacos

To know me is to know that I love any & everything taco related! I'll be honest, I was inspired by an episode of Life of Kylie [I won't lie, I watched it] when the youngest Kar-Jenner declared that she ate shrimp tacos EVERY DAY. With Kylie as my muse, I set out to my kitchen to put together a simple, flavorful shrimp taco meal of my own.Check out my Shrimp Taco recipe


- 1/2 lb. thawed cooked shrimp, deveined & tails removed

-  juice of 1/2 lime

- 1/4 white onion, diced

- 1/4 cilantro, chopped

- 1 tsp. ground cayenne pepper

- 1 tsp. Old Bay seasoning- Salt & pepper, to taste

- 1 tbsp. olive oil

- 3-4 hard shell tacos

Prep time: 5 minutes - Cook time: 10 minutes - Total Time: 25 minutes


  1. Heat olive oil in a pan on medium-high heat.

  2. Add onions. Season with cayenne pepper, salt, & pepper. Sauté for 3-5 minutes.

  3. Add shrimp, lime juice, and Old Bay seasoning. Mix well. Simmer 3-5 minutes.

  4. Divide shrimp into taco shells. Garnish with preferred toppings. [I used guac, salsa, & cilantro].

  5. Serve immediately & enjoy!


Honestly, I see where Kylie was coming from - I could easily eat these tacos every single day. What's your favorite way to have tacos?
