For me, tacos are life and make just about everything better, so after a not-so-great day I decided to create some sort of delicious and paleo taco dish. After debating for a while between beef and shrimp tacos, I decided on shrimp, but really only because I already had it in my freezer. Yup, a delicious shrimp taco meal made from laziness.
This recipe makes 3 servings, even though Rush and I ate all of the shrimp tacos in one sitting. I shudder to think of what my grocery bill will be when these guys become teenagers!
I have had bad luck making my own tortillas before, but thought I’d give it another go. Possibly failed again because you can’t actually hold it like a taco or it will fall apart (insert super annoyed angry face). BUT, they were delicious! I spread everything out on it, kind of like a tostada and ate it with a fork. It soaked up the chipotle lime sauce perfectly and I actually did a little dance when I ate it because it tasted THAT good. Maybe I’m weird, but I LOVE when healthy food satisfies my cravings! It is quite a bit of extra work to make them over buying them, so it’s up to you if you want to take a gamble making these.
1/2 c. Almond Flour
1/2 c. Coconut Flour
1 tsp. Olive Oil
1/4 tsp. Salt
Mix ingredients together. It will seem kind of flaky, but that’s ok. With your hands, form it into a ball on a flat surface and then roll with a rolling pin until it’s about 1/8 inch thick. If it’s getting too sticky to roll, wet the rolling pin with water and go at it again. To make the circle, I used a kids bowl and pressed firmly. To unstick from the mat, go around the edges with a spatula and it will come right up. Place on non-stick aluminum foil. Bake at 300 degrees for 8 minutes. Let cool completely.
1 lb shrimp
Cajun Seasoning (used- Dean’s Naturals)
1 tsp. Coconut Oil
Thaw shrimp if necessary, peel and devein. Heat coconut oil in skillet over medium heat. Lightly coat shrimp with Cajun Seasoning. Stir and flip shrimp until thoroughly cooked – solid pink.
Chipotle Lime Sauce
1/4 c. Canned Coconut Milk
1 Tbsp. Fresh Lime Juice
1/2 tsp. Chipotle Seasoning
1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Cumin
1/4 tsp. Dried Cilantro
Simply mix all ingredients together and enjoy this light sauce. It will be quite thin, but it 100% made these shrimp tacos as amazing as they were!
Avocado if wanted
I hope that you enjoy these shrimp tacos as much as we did!
