Spicy shrimp tacos with avocado salsa and sour cream cilantro sauce. These tasty tacos are ready in under 15 minutes and are super healthy and delicious!

I simply couldn’t find the words to explain how delicious these tacos are, but I guess the title says basically says it all.

I shared a sneak peek photo on my Instagram last night and began getting tons of emails and comments from people wanting the recipe ASAP. So here I am publishing it at 5 am!

These shrimp tacos are spicy and delicious. They are served with my favorite avocado salsa and topped with a creamy sour cream and cilantro sauce.

The sour cream sauce is the perfect sauce for these tacos because it helps balance the heat and add a delicious flavor.


THE RECIPE:

Ingredients:
  • 20 medium shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • squeeze of lime optional
Avocado Salsa:
  • 1 tomato seeded and chopped
  • 1 avocado peeled, seeded and cut into chunks
  • 1 jalapeno seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice from half a lime
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves coarsely chopped
Cilantro Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 6 small flour tortillas corn tortillas can also be used
Instructions:
To cook the shrimp:
  1. In a medium bowl whisk together olive oil, garlic, cumin, chili and onion powders, and salt. Add in shrimp and toss to coat completely.
  2. Cover and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes or up to 24 hours. Heat a large heavy-duty or cast iron skillet on high heat for 2 minutes.
  3. Add the olive oil and shrimp.
  4. Cook shrimp in a skillet over medium-high heat until pink and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Turn off heat and finish with a squeeze of lime (optional).
To make salsa:
  1. Combine tomato, avocado, jalapeno, salt, pepper, lime juice, and cilantro in a small bowl and stir to combine.
  2. Set aside. (If not using right away, place a piece of plastic wrap inside the bowl and directly over salsa to prevent discoloration and refrigerate.)
To assemble:
  1. Stir sour-cream with cilantro and lime juice in a small bowl; set aside. Grill tortillas on stovetop over the flame until lightly charred (this step is optional).
  2. Spoon avocado salsa generously over warm tortillas, then top with 3 shrimp and drizzle with sour cream sauce.
  3. Serve tacos with lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!!
