Cajun Shrimp Tacos with homemade Cajun hard taco shells.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Oregano
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Thyme
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Basil
  • ½ Tablespoons Cayenne
  • 1 Tablespoon Creole Seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon Black Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Salt
  • 8 whole Corn Tortillas
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil, Divided
  • ½ whole Yellow Onion, Diced
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 2 pounds Uncooked Shrimp Peeled, Deveined (preferably Wild Caught)
  • 1 whole Small Red Bell Pepper, Sliced Very Thin
  • 1 whole Small Orange Bell Pepper, Sliced Very Thin
  • 1 can (14 Oz. Size) Fire-roasted Diced Tomatoes
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese, For Serving
  • 1 whole Avocado, Diced For Serving

Preparation

Preheat oven to 450ºF.

In a glass measuring cup or small bowl, combine the oregano, thyme, basil, cayenne, Creole seasoning, Cajun seasoning, pepper and salt. Whisk to combine.

Working with four tortillas at a time, microwave them for 1-2 minutes. Quickly rub with olive oil and sprinkle one side with the spice mixture. Just do a sprinkle, about 1/2 teaspoon to 3/4 teaspoon, on each tortilla, reserving the rest of the spice mixture for later.

Place tortillas on a taco mold if you have one. If not, invert a regular-sized muffin tin. Fold the tortillas gently and prop up between the bottom of 4 muffin cups. Bake at 450ºF for 5-7 minutes or until crisp and lightly browned. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

Heat remaining oil in heavy large skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and saute for 7-10 minutes. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add shrimp and about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the spice mix. Sauté until just beginning to turn opaque in center, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl.

To the same skillet, add the bell peppers and saute about 5 minutes until slightly soft but still crisp. Add the tomatoes and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes and then add the shrimp back into the skillet and toss well. Simmer 1 more minute and then remove from heat. Taste and add a teaspoon or so more of the spice mixture if desired.

Fill the taco shells with the shrimp and peppers and top with cheddar cheese and avocado if desired.
