Grilled Shrimp Tacos with spicy avocado crema.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE SPICY AVOCADO CREMA:
  • 1-½ cup Ripe Avocado, Mashed
  • ½ cups Mexican Crema (or Crème Fraîche )
  • ¼ cups Fresh Cilantro, Chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Jalapeno Pepper, Finely Diced And Seeded
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Lime Juice
  • Kosher Salt And Ground Pepper To Taste
  • FOR THE SHRIMP:
  • 1 pound Large Shrimp, Peeled And Deveined
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Garlic, Finely Minced
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Lime Zest
  • ¼ teaspoons Red Chili Flake
  • 2 pinches Cayenne Pepper
  • 2 pinches Ground Cumin
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • Kosher Salt
  • FOR SERVING:
  • Tortillas
  • Fresh Corn Pico De Gallo (optional)
  • Fresh Cilantro Leaves
  • Fresh Lime Wedges

Preparation

Prepare the Spicy Avocado Crema by combining all the ingredients in a food processor. Puree until thoroughly combined. Place in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Prepare shrimp by combining all the ingredients in a large bowl and marinate for 10 minutes. If using an outdoor grill, skewer the shrimp on soaked bamboo sticks. If using an indoor grill pan, heat over a medium-high flame. Grill shrimp for 1-2 minutes on each side until opaque. Remove from grill and place on a large platter.

Warm tortillas in a skillet. Assemble tacos by placing a layer of the Corn Pico de Gallo in a tortilla and top with the grilled shrimp. Drizzle the Spicy Avocado Crema over the top and sprinkle with cilantro. Serve with lime wedges. Enjoy!

These by far were the BEST Shrimp Taco’s I have ever had. They were gone in a heartbeat. I didn’t change a thing, but added cabbage.
