Shrimp Tacos with Creamy Avocado Sauce; Cassava Tortillas

These shrimp tacos are a great alternative to Baja Fish Tacos! They make a refreshing meal for summer time. The sauce is tangy, spicy, and creamy all at the same time. Honestly, I don’t have much to say about them other than make them tonight and you won’t regret it! And that I wish I was on a beach eating them right now.

1 lb. shrimp
¼ tsp. cumin
Pinch of chili powder
Pinch of salt and black pepper
Olive oil (for drizzling the pan)
2 c. of cabbage (sliced thinly)
1 ½ avocado (sliced)
1 c. cilantro (chopped)
1 lime (cut into wedges)
3 radishes (cut into thin slices)

 

Instructions

Add all ingredients for the creamy avocado sauce to a food processor and blend until smooth and fully incorporated. Set aside.

Pat shrimp dry with a paper towel. Season with cumin, chili powder, and black pepper. Heat a pan to medium high heat and coat with olive oil. (alternatively grill or bake the shrimp)

Add shrimp to the pan without overcrowding and cook for 2-3 minutes per side or until they turn pink.

Heat a separate pan to medium heat. Add a drizzle of olive oil to the pan. Place tortillas one at a time in pan to warm before serving.

Assemble taco with shrimp, a handful of cabbage, avocado slices, a dollop of sauce, and top with chopped cilantro. Garnish the plate with lime wedges and radish.*


*Lime and radish help neutralize the spiciness!
