Description

Crispy beer batter makes these shrimp perfect! The cilantro lime dressing adds zest to the tacos.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE DRESSING:
  • 2 Tablespoons Lime Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons White Wine Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • ¼ cups Vegetable Oil
  • ¼ cups Cilantro
  • FOR THE TACOS:
  • ¾ cups Flour
  • ⅔ cups Beer
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1-½ teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt And Pepper
  • ½ pounds Shrimp
  • ½ cups Vegetable Oil
  • 1 whole Tomatoes
  • 1 whole Avocado
  • 6 whole Corn Tortillas
  • 1 cup Cabbage

Preparation

For the dressing:
Blend together lime juice, white wine vinegar, sugar, salt and garlic. Drizzle oil in while blending. Add cilantro and pulse blender a few times to break down cilantro just enough to hold some texture.

For the shrimp:
Stir together flour, beer, egg, baking powder and salt and pepper. Remove shells from shrimp.

Heat the oil in a skillet. Fry shrimp until golden on both sides. Remove and drain on paper towels then season with salt.

For the filling:
Dice tomato, slice avocado.

Cook corn tortillas over flame on a gas stove until slightly charred on both sides.

Build tacos with cabbage, tomato, avocado, shrimp and then a drizzle of cilantro lime dressing.
Enjoy!

This was so delicious! I really liked the way the beer battered shrimp mixed with the cilantro lime marinade. I used New Belgium Abbey Ale for my beer and it gave the perfect beer flavor to my batter. Thank you for this recipe!
