Great shrimp tacos with avocado. I also grilled up some onions to go in the taco. On the side is a coleslaw with some cumin and pumpkin seeds, and a nice cold beer. Don’t forget extra limes!
Chipotle Shrimp Tacos with Avocado Salsa
2 tomatoes, diced
1 small red onion, diced
1 jalapeno, diced, seeds optional
2 garlic cloves, smashed
1 medium tomatillos, husked, rinsed, and diced
1 Hass avocado, cut into chunks
1 lime, juiced
1/4 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ teaspoon lime juice
1 teaspoon chipotle powder
1 pound medium shrimp (about 20), peeled and deveined
4-6 corn tortillas
4 sprigs cilantro, coarsely chopped
2 limes, cut into wedges
Dice all of the vegetables and combine. Add salt and pepper. Squeeze in the juice of 1 lime. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the cilantro. Let sit on the counter for about 15 minutes to allow flavors to combine. Store in the refrigerator up to 4 days.
Mix the olive oil, lime juice, chili seasoning, and salt in a large bowl. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Marinade at least 10 minutes and up to 24 hours, covered, in the refrigerator.
When ready to cook, heat a stovetop pan to medium-high. Add the shrimp and cook until translucent, about 2 minutes on each side.
Place tortillas on a plate and top with a damp paper towel; warm in the microwave for 20 seconds. Top tortillas with cooked shrimp, avocado salsa, and a little chopped cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.
