Super Easy Shrimp Tacos

To make these tacos you’ll need:

  • corn or flour tortillas. We used corn.
  • shrimp
  • oil
  • minced garlic
  • Chef Paul’s Seafood Magic
  • package of coleslaw
  • mayonnaise
  • honey
  • lemon juice
  • lime juice
  • paprika

Heat your tortillas according to package directions and set aside. Put oil in a skillet on medium heat, add shrimp, Chef Paul’s seafood magic, and about a teaspoon of minced garlic (I like a lot of garlic so add as much or as little as you prefer). Cook shrimp on each side for about 3-4 minutes until done.

While the shrimp are cooking mix your coleslaw and citrus mayo sauce. In one bowl add your coleslaw, 1/2 cup of mayonnaise, 1 teaspoon each of lemon juice and lime juice and 1 tablespoon of honey. I only used about 1/3-1/2 bag of coleslaw for 4 tacos. In another bowl add 1/2 cup of mayonnaise,  1 teaspoon each of lemon juice, lime juice and paprika.

Put coleslaw on tortilla, add shrimp and top with the mayonnaise citrus sauce.

That’s it, super easy and perfect for a quick Friday dinner during Lent or for Taco Tuesday!

More About World Port Seafood

World Port Seafood delivers high quality seafood right to your door. From the same company that brings you Omaha Steaks, World Port Seafood gives you Quality – Confidence – Convenience.

Their seafood is frozen fresh in season from all around the world which takes the guesswork out of choosing seafood from the grocery store. They also offer great entrees that are created by their expert chefs to make cooking easier for everyone and free shipping on all orders $49 or more.

I have to say I was apprehensive about this seafood. Growing up in New Orleans and being able to get fresh seafood all my life I’m not a fan of frozen seafood. World Port Seafood changed my mind on frozen. It was some of the best shrimp I have had. It was absolutely delicious.

Everyone in my house loved it. For the other fish in our box we plan to do fish and chips with the cod, lemon garlic Tilapia over a bed of sauteed garlic asparagus with mushrooms, and with the stuff sole we are going to make a spaghetti squash al gratin. All super simple and quick.
