I love trying to recreate meals that we have enjoyed when are out to eat. One you save money making it at home and two…well who doesn’t like a challenge! Keith ordered shrimp tacos on a dinner date and I thought, hmmm, I like shrimp and I enjoy a good taco, so I decided to try my hand at shrimp tacos!
I use small shrimp…I buy the frozen uncooked shrimp, not sure the bag size…buy the amount you need to feed your crew. This pan fed my crew of one hungry man and his weight watching wife! Oh, with one left over for his lunch the next day.
I pour the shrimp into a strainer and rinse them really well…really-really well. I don’t know why, not even sure what I am rinsing off, but I do it. Then I sprinkle them with Old Bay Seasoning and cook them in butter…yes, butter! Of course you can sprinkle them with whatever you want and cook them in olive oil, too.
I buy a bag of cole slaw, plain old cole slaw and a small bunch of fresh cilantro. For the two of us, I put 3 cups of cole slaw in a bowl and added about 1/3 cup of slightly chopped cilantro and then drizzled it with lime juice. Just enough to make it wet and easy to mix, probably a tablespoon or so. You can adjust the cilantro and lime juice to your fit your taste buds.
