Need dinner in less than 30 minutes? Who doesn’t!
I’ve mentioned my love of frozen raw shrimp before. Buy them when they’re on sale (usually buy one/get one), use what you need, then keep the rest frozen for a future meal.
Here’s one of my go-to meals:
Grilled Chili Shrimp Soft Tacos
24 large shrimp, tails removed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons lemon juice
6 flour tortillas
1 small tomato, diced
1/2 medium onion, diced
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup seasoned rice*
1 14.5 ounce can refried beans, warmed
1/4 cup sour cream
Wrap the tortillas in aluminum foil and place in oven at 325 degrees to warm while you make the rest of the meal.
Warm a grill pan with olive oil (or a large skillet) over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Meanwhile, sprinkle one side of the shrimp with chili powder, salt and pepper. Place the shrimp seasoned-side down in the grill pan and cook for 2 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, squirt with lemon juice, and then flip. Cook for an additional 2 minutes.
Build the tacos with shrimp, beans, rice, cheese, tomato, onion and sour cream. Serve hot!
Makes 6 soft tacos.
