Shrimp Tacos

Shrimp cooks so quickly that these tacos come together with only 5 minutes of cooking. The pico de gallo needs to be made earlier in the day, or even the day before. A green salad and some corn on the cob round out a light, quick summertime meal that tastes like you fussed–without heating up the kitchen!shrimp tacos closeup


(Makes 8 tacos)

shrimp for tacos c1 pound raw shelled, deveined shrimp, tails removed (I use the medium shrimp—31/40 per pound)
2 TBL extra virgin olive oil
4 TBL flour
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Combine the cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and season the shrimp, then dredge in flour. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, and sauté the shrimp 2 to 3 minutes on each side, and it’s done!

Serve on warmed tortillas with fresh pico de gallo and your favorite toppings.
