How to Make Cilantro-Lime Shrimp Tacos | The Stay At Home Chef


Today on The Stay At Home Chef I’m showing you how to make Spicy Cilantro-Lime Shrimp Tacos These tacos are easy to make and boy do they pack a punch of flavor! If you’re sensitive to spice, don’t worry you can definitely control the heat level
in this dish To start we’ll make a quick marinade You’ll need the juice of 2 limes so about 4 tablespoons 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil 1/4 cup of freshly chopped cilantro 1 minced serrano pepper and this is where you can control the heat
level a little bit 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes and once again control that to control your
heat Whisk it together Now we’re going to use this sauce for two different items in our tacos We’re going to use it on our shrimp itself as well as on a slaw that will go on top You want 1 1/2 to 2 pounds of shrimp and I have that here in my bowl and you notice I have the tails removed We’re going to pour on about 2 tablespoons
of this marinade Get a little bit there as well as 1/2 teaspoon of smoked paprika which will give this some color and toss it together I also like the smokiness that the smoked
paprika gives the shrimp as well Now you can let this marinate but today I’m going to head straight to cooking Get a large heavy skillet heating on the stove over medium high heat We’re going to dump that directly into the
skillet and cook the shrimp until it’s pink and cooked
through It’ll only take about 3 to 5 minutes of cooking to cook the shrimp all the way through Shrimp is really easy to cook You know it’s done when it is no longer translucent and it gets a white and pink color to it Remove it from the heat and set it aside You can use a little bit more of the cilantro-lime
sauce if you want on your shrimp once it is cooked and we’re going to pour the rest over some shredded cabbage You’ll need about 2 cups Pour that right over the cabbage Then I like to add 1/4 cup more of freshly
chopped cilantro And 2 tablespoons of sour cream to give it a little bit of creaminess And toss this all together Season your slaw with a little more salt and
pepper to taste and that’s it! We’re ready to compile our tacos You can use either corn or flour tortillas
for this depending on personal preference Start by scooping on some of that delicious
shrimp and I like to load it up You don’t skimp on the shrimp. Next we’re going to load it up with the slaw Just pile that right on Finish it off with a little bit of queso fresco and some red onions for garnish You can use regular red onions but I like to use pickled red onions because they add that extra little bite Be sure to check out my recipe for pickled
red onions. Next, we’re ready to eat! Thanks for watching! You can find the full written recipe in the
