Grilled Chili-Lime Shrimp Tacos & GIVEAWAY


This was the best lunch.

I found this recipe for Grilled Shrimp Tacos on Tasty Kitchen and knew I must make them. I was sold when I saw that they were accompanied by a spicy avocado crema. *drooling* Shrimp tacos have become a new favorite of mine when I go out to mexican restaurants and these were just as good, if not better than any shrimp tacos I have previously enjoyed. 

To add even more spice to the Spicy Avocado Crema, I added a few dashes of Tobasco sauce, which was a good choice on my part. Loved it! I didn't have any mexican crema on hand either, so I substituted it with light sour cream. Overall, this lunch is super healthy and out of this world delicious!

Spicy avocado crema + pico de gallo + grilled shrimp = well rounded & healthy lunch

I like that type of math ;)

To marinate the shrimp, I used 1/2 clove of minced garlic (like in the recipe), but then I used my secret weapon...

I love this stuff.

Add 1-1/2 tsp to 1/2 lb of Shrimp and you are good to go. It's the perfect seasoning for shrimp, chicken and corn. I love it on corn! I season some thawed frozen corn with this stuff and pile it on my tacos. Delicious!
