Recipe For Grilled Shrimp Tacos

|

I am sharing a recipe for the best grilled shrimp tacos for the Mexican food lover who appreciates a healthy meal.

Y’all – I have a confession to make.  I love Mexican food.  No, I mean, I LOOOOVE Mexican food!  Pookie and I hit one of our local Mexican food restaurants one or two times every week.  I’d probably go more if I could.

I’ve learned over time though, that I can make equally appetizing Mexican dishes at home that are much healthier.  As much I love all of the gooey melted cheese that usually tops whatever I order at a restaurant, I know that it isn’t good for me.  And, as much as I love Mexican food and seafood, it took me a long time to warm up to the idea of putting the two of them together.  Well…fast forward to me trying these delicious shrimp tacos – now I’m hooked!

In addition to the ease of prep and tastiness of this taco recipe, I love the versatility of it.  If you aren’t a shrimp lover, try substituting fish such as grilled tilapia in its place.  The recipe calls for adding a slice of avocado to each taco.  I prefer to eat my avocado on the side, so I add a little salsa instead.  Use your imagination and you can create a healthy dish that your family will totally love!

These tacos would make a great addition to any party too.  Set up a taco bar so that each person can customize their taco to their own taste.

  6. I sometimes will add toasted unsweetened coconut to my shrimp and then use a mango or peach salsa drizzled in the taco. It’s a great light summertime meal.

  7. These tacos sound so delicious, and I have never had nor made shrimp tacos. I’d love to make these for a get together and have all the toppings available, too.

  8. Oh, boy, those grilled shrimp tacos look SO good! I’ve never had any type of seafood taco in my 63+ years, so this should be a great one to begin with!
