This is what I made for supper tonight it was AMAZING! although there are 2 things I will change next time #1 buy more shrimp! #2 use a different type of tortilla. Other than those 2 mishaps these were delicious. If you look how I have everything assembled it actually serves a purpose, Look how the tortillas are placed. I put them this way so they hold there shape. 🙂
First brown tortillas. I put a little olive oil in the bottom of the skillet and cooked them on both sides just till brown.
1 bag of shrimp peeled and deveined
1/2 tsp. parsley flakes (only because I did not have fresh)
2 pinches of salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
2 Tbsp. butter
3 cloves of garlic (peeled)
6 small tortillas
Drizzle some olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Wait until skillet is hot then add Butter, shrimp, 1/2 the juice from a lemon, 1/2 the juice from a lime, salt & pepper, and garlic cloves (I just smash them and throw them in the pan so there is a slight garlic flavor). Once shrimp is cooked, this only takes a few minutes, add cilantro, and parsley , turn heat off. set aside.
Baja Ranch sauce
1 cup of buttermilk ranch
4 tsp. taco seasoning
2 tsp. adobo seasoning
Mix all ingredients together and set aside. This can be made the night before to save time.
1 pablano pepper
1 red bell pepper
2 small tomatoes ( I used roma)
1/2 a medium size union
2 Tsp. fresh cilantro
Take seeds out of peppers and rinse. Give everything a rough chop, through into a food processor & let the processor do the work. Set aside. This could also be made the night before to save time.
I also bought a pack of slaw mix and salt and peppered it to load the tacos with.
I would suggest buying 2 bags of shrimp. I had plenty of Baja ranch sauce and salsa left so I doubt you would need to double them. The recipe I made tonight made 6 tacos.
And for dessert I made dark chocolate covered strawberries with a sprinkle of sea salt.
My sister and I are watching our weight so to make these strawberries I got one serving size of dark chocolate and melted it in the microwave with a little bit of canola oil, and by that I mean less than 1/2 a cap. Once the chocolate was melted I dipped the strawberries in it and sprinkled each strawberry with a pinch of sea salt. 🙂
