Shrimp Soft Tacos

This summer I have found my afternoons action-packed. I don’t want to be slaving over the stove when we could be playing outside. I prepped this meal while the kids were having “quiet time”…and I still had plenty of downtime so I could read the paper that day.

Shrimp Soft Tacos

Lemon juice
Olive oil
1 lb bag of frozen (uncooked) shrimp

In a blender make the marinade by combining lemon juice, olive oil, a couple cloves of garlic, a dash of cumin, and salt and pepper to taste. Marinate the shrimp for ½ hour, then either grill the shrimp or sauté them until pink. I served them room temp with the following accompaniments (all purchased at Trader Joe’s):

Whole Wheat Tortillas (Low Carb or Regular)
Shredded Cabbage
Shredded Carrots
Mango, cut into slivers
Fire Roasted Corn (found in the freezer section)
Cilantro Chive Yogurt Dip (which I mixed with a small tub of Fage 0% Greek Yogurt)
