John and I eat at home probably six out of seven nights a week. While we love cooking more elaborate meals when we have time, some nights we just need to get dinner on the table in under 15 minutes. Cue the fastest cooking protein I know, shrimp! There are so many variations on ways to cook shrimp, I mean just ask Forrest Gump 🙂 Despite the versatility of shrimp we generally like to saute when we are preparing it at home. Here is our favorite Shrimp Taco Recipe!

Start by marinating the shrimp.  One key is to make sure the shrimp are completely dry before you start to marinate them. I place them all of a paper towel and pat them dry. Next, I put them all in a bowl and spray them with PAM Non-GMO Avocado Oil Cooking Spray and 2 tablespoons of taco seasoning. Then give them a good stir.  I love that the PAM Non-GMO Avocado Oil Cooking Spray sprays evenly and I know that the shrimp will not stick to the cooking surface.

Next, turn on your stove to medium-high heat and spray the pan with PAM Non-GMO Avocado Oil Cooking Spray.

New PAM Non-GMO cooking spray offers the same PAM benefits across three new varieties: Olive, Avocado and Coconut Oil. All varieties have three ingredients or less and are Non – GMO Project verified.

Next, add the seasoned shrimp to the pan and cook until the shrimp are opaque.

This should take about 2 minutes on each side. After the shrimp is finished remove from the pan and get ready for the taco bar.

Since I have a gluten allergy, John and I use traditional corn tortillas for our shrimp tacos.  According to my Grandmama, the only way to eat a corn tortilla is hot off of the pan. In order to achieve this, we pull out a small electric skillet to heat and eat our tortillas right from the table after giving the skillet a light spray of PAM Non-GMO Avocado Oil Cooking Spray.

Once the tortillas are a little crispy (about 45 seconds each side), place them in a paper towel and start building your tacos.

Our favorite toppings include caramelized onions, pico de gallo, avocado slices, cilantro, and fresh lime juice.

There you have it folks, our favorite weeknight dinner that is ready in under 15 minutes. I hope you will try our shrimp taco recipe!
