healthy shrimp tacos


I tried this recipe a couple of weeks ago, and it was so good that I will probably start making this at least once a month. I have some shrimp in the fridge right now, and even though we had chicken tacos for dinner tonight, I'm kind of thinking about making these for dinner tomorrow... The recipe comes from this great site called Clean and Delicious with Dani Spies which has tons of healthy, clean, and delicious meals.

Healthy Shrimp Tacos (Source: Clean and Delicious)
Serves 4
  • 1 pound of shrimp, peeled & deveined
  • 6 oz. fat free Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 T. fresh lime juice
  • 1 t. cayenne pepper (the original recipe calls for 1/2 teaspoon)
  • 5 cups shredded cabbage
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 4 t. extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Heat tortillas over medium heat in a dry skillet until warm and starting to form small brown spots. Set aside on a plate covered with a clean kitchen towel.

Mix yogurt, cayenne, lime juice, cilantro, and salt in a small bowl, set aside.

Heat two teaspoons of olive oil in a medium non-stick skillet and add cabbage. Cook for about four minutes or until the cabbage is just barely wilted. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

Cut shrimp into thirds, so you have little bite size pieces. Sauté in two teaspoons of olive oil and season with salt, pepper and a dash of cayenne pepper over medium heat just until done. They cook up in just a few minutes… so be sure to watch them!

Build your taco! Place a scoop of cabbage on the warmed tortillas taco, then top with shrimp, and cilantro sauce… enjoy!
