I was having a serious craving for seafood tacos this week, so even through we had tacos earlier this week I made them tonight! I’ve always loved a yummy lime taste in them so I used some fresh cilantro I had bought earlier on the week and threw together a “sauce” using Greek yogurt.
Sidenote-although I like almost everything, I have never been able to eat yogurt. Everything about it makes me gag. But I really want to like it! I force myself to try things with yogurt constantly but can’t do it. Greek yogurt still isn’t my favorite but mixed in smoothies and dressings I’m okay.
Anyway, here’s what I did. And as usual, all measurements are approximate!
Cilantro lime dressing:
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
juice of 2 limes (plus I used about 1/2 tsp zest of the lime)
1 clove garlic,grated or minced
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
blend all ingredients in a food processor and set aside
1/4 cup olive oil
a few tsp of the following:
ground black pepper
1 garlic clove minced
juice from 1/2 a lemon
about 20 large raw shrimp
Place shrimp and all ingredients in large plastic bag and toss so they are coated
marinate at least 15 minutes in fridge
empty contents into frying pan on medium heat
continue to turn shrimp until cooked through
top with diced tomato, sliced avocado, slaw, and lime dressing from above on your favorite taco shell (I used whole wheat tortillas)
