These tacos are so, so good for summer and healthy, too. These were such a winner in our house for Taco Tuesday and are truly the perfect taco for hot summer weather.
To bring this delicious meal to your kitchen, you will need:
- 1 lb of fresh shrimp, de-veined
- Corn tortillas
Homemade Cajun Seasoning
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 2 ½ teaspoons paprika
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
Pineapple Cucumber Salsa
- 1 cup fresh pineapple, diced
- ½ cup cucumbers, diced
- ½ medium red onion, diced
- 1 roma tomato, seeded and diced
- ½ – 1 whole jalapeno, seeded and diced (adjust to taste)
- ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
- Juice of 1 lime
Begin by preparing your salsa so that the flavors have time to come together. Just toss everything in a bowl, squeeze your lime on top, and stir well. You can adjust the amount of jalapeno or remove it according to your tastes. Once your salsa is prepared, set aside to prepare your shrimp.
Rub shrimp with your homemade Cajun seasoning. There are Cajun seasonings you can purchase in the store but I highly recommend making your own. You can store the extra in a small Tupperware or Ziploc for next time.
Grill you shrimp on medium-high heat until cooked through. This won’t take long – just about two minutes per side depending on the size of your shrimp so keep a close eye on them. Heat up your corn tortillas and top with shrimp and salsa. Enjoy!
