Tacos are always a great idea if you are looking for a tasty, quick, and easy midweek dinner. Want a healthier one? Prepare shrimp tacos with homemade flour tortillas.

Juicy and spicy, a source of protein and prepared in under 30 minutes, this shrimp tacos recipe is always a big hit. Add a shrimp taco sauce and healthy coleslaw and you'll have a mouthwatering meal.

Follow our recipe below for a simple yet tasty shrimp taco dinner any time of the week.



What kind of shrimps should be used for this shrimp taco recipe?

Frozen shrimp isn't recommended if you are eating something like shrimp cocktail. However, frozen will do just fine fr shrimp tacos if you're preparing it with spices and fresh ingredients like garlic. They are usually slightly cheaper and are already peeled and ready to be sauteed. This can reduce your prep time even more.

If you're using frozen shrimp for this shrimp tacos recipe, thaw it in the refrigerator overnight. If you do forget to do so (no judgement here!) you can fast forward the process by putting frozen shrimps in a colander and submerging it into cold water for 20 min.

Don't use hot water as it will ruin your shrimps. They cook very quickly so using hot water means that they'll start cooking from the outside and will stay frozen from the inside. No one wants that in their shrimp tacos.

Cooking perfect shrimps might take a bit of practice, but the secret here is not to overcook them. Otherwise, the shrimp will shrink and will become too chewy.

What can you serve with shrimp tacos?

If you feel like your shrimp tacos are still missing something, you can always prepare some delicious side dishes. Shrimp tacos go well with refried beans, cheesy nachos, fresh salsa, and guacamole.

If you want to be more adventurous, make a pineapple salsa or a zesty quinoa salad. 

What other Mexican shrimp recipes are easy to follow?

We have other recipes for Mexican dishes. If you liked making shrimp tacos, you can also try making shrimp quesadillas. Our recipe is simple and easy to follow; aside from the ingredients, you just need a cast iron skillet and you're good to go.

If quesadilla isn't your thing, why not try shrimp burrito with avocado dressing? Everybody loves a burrito; it does need a little more cook time but the end product is definitely worth it.

What are other alternatives to shrimp tacos?

If you're vegetarian, we have a good tofu taco recipe you can follow. However, if you just don't like shrimp tacos but other seafood isn't a problem, we can recommend tuna tacos and the delicious salmon tacos with avocado salsa.
