Shrimp Tacos

I made these shrimp tacos out of shear desperation for something quick and easy. It's hot here in Texas and I some days when the temperature is 100+ degrees, I don't feel like turning on the oven or slaving over the stove. These shrimp tacos are fresh and easy to do. I used a cast iron skillet to heat the tortillas. They taste much better than just putting them in the microwave or eating them straight out of the package. 


Your favorite taco seasoning (I used Penzy's Fajita Seasoning)
1 lb. shrimp
3 tbsp. olive oil
8-10 yellow corn tortillas
2 c. shredded cabbage
1/4 c. chopped cilantro

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Coat shrimp in taco seasoning. I like it spicy so I add about 3 tbsp. of the Penzy's seasoning. Cook shrimp in skillet until pink and cooked through. In a black cast iron skillet, warm tortillas. Put 4-5 shrimp in one tortilla. Top with cabbage, salsa, and lime juice. Enjoy! 


  1. Yum!! I need to make shrimp tacos again soon. Those tortillas look amazing!

  2. These are so good and quick! The tortillas are amazing when cooked in the black skillet.
