Skrimp Tacos

Another night of cooking for the two love birds! My favorite meat to eat is shrimp. I like fried shrimp, grilled shrimp, shrimp gumbo, shrimp sushi, shrimp pasta, shrimp ramen noodles...I know, getting all bubba gumpy but the point is I likes me the shrimp. So on this night I suggested we make Shrimp Tacos and boy was that a good idea. I googled the net for a good recipe and found this one for Shrimp Tacos; but it was a little too complicated for our last minute decision so we had to make a few substitutions, all in all it was basically the same.

We made a quick run to the grocery store and picked up some fresh shrimp, avocados, limes, Herdez salsa (to replace the fancy salsa from the recipe), corn tortilla's and had everything else at the house. Oh and a 6-pack of Corona. Muy importante!!

After peeling the shrimp I tossed them in a little EVOO, Kosher Salt, and Chipotle Chili Powder and a touch of pepper. It was too easy!

Off to the pan for some sizzlin! Just 1 to 2 minutes on each side and they're done! In the mean time my sous chef was chopping the avocado, lime and cilantro and cooking the corn tortillas on the stove.

After an amazingly short amount of prep and cook time we we're ready to eat. We prepared our plates, grabbed our Corona's and sat down in front of the television for one of my favorite movies, Fried Green Tomatoes (he'd never seen it so it was especially fun).

Another successful seafood dish by us!
