Shrimp Tacos

Shrimp tacoThe other day, I was craving shrimp tacos and realized I had not shared this recipe with you.

The shrimp cook up quickly which makes for an easy weeknight meal.  This pairs well with strawberry mango salsa.  The recipe below make enough for 8-10 soft tacos.  Here I added lettuce, salsa and sour cream. The only thing that would have made this better was if I had something besides iceberg lettuce in the fridge.

3/4 lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 Tablespoon butter
1 Tablespoon lemon juice

Toss shrimp in seasoning mixture (smoked paprika, cumin and cayenne pepper) and set aside.  In a large skillet, melt butter. Add shrimp and cook just until done, turning half-way through.  Remove from heat and add lemon juice.

TIP: Shrimp cook very quickly.  Total cooking time will be approximately 5 minutes.
