These delicious shrimp tacos are easy to make and a refreshing change from the usual fish tacos. We really like them with salsa verde.

Top Review by Garlic Chick

I love shrimp burritos but rarely find them at restaurants without being filled up with rice, so I wanted to make my own. I, however, purchased corn tortillas, not flour burrito shells. I made this with the addition of onion and had one tomato to use, so I added it to the mix before I threw in the shrimp. All of my shrimp taco/burrito dreams have come true - excellent! I cooked the onion a bit before, then the tomato, threw in the shrimp (I had the really small ones), then the fresh salsa. I cooked the corn tortillas separately then added the mixture and about 1 teaspoon of mayonnaise-milk-lime juice-cilantro mix (learned of this at local Mexican restaurants) as a dressing. But I could have added lettuce, cheese, or cabbage - all would be great! thanks for posting this super-easy and terrific recipe, Alskann! Great!
