Shrimp Tacos




I tried this recipe (from my mother-in-law) last night. I really liked it. I think it might taste okay with chicken, too.

Mint Lime Sauce:
2T chopped fresh mint leaves (I leave these out)
1 C plain nonfat yogurt (I used sour cream)
Zest of 1 lime
1 T EVOO
Freshly ground pepper

Marinade:
2 T EVOO
1 T lime juice
½ t chili powder
Salt & pepper

1 lb large raw shrimp (peeled and deveined)
Marinade for 15 minutes
Cook shrimp in skillet until pink, cut into small pieces

Corn Salsa:
1 C corn kernels
1 C seeded & diced tomatoes
½ avocado
2 scallions
½ t jalapeno
½ T EVOO
1 T lime juice
Salt & pepper

Shredded lettuce
Corn (or flour) tortillas
Serve shrimp, salsa, lettuce and cream in tortillas.

What is EVOO? I've never tried shrimp tacos because I was too scared to try something that new.

EVOO = Extra Virgin Olive Oil
