How to make it

  • Prepare the pico de gallo first so that the flavors have at least an hour to blend together. It can be left out at room temperature for several hours.
  • Prepare the toppings and place each one in a separate small serving bowl.
  • Have a skillet heated and ready to warm the corn tortillas, if you are using corn rather than flour tortillas or hard shells. I find that heating the corn tortillas a minute or two on each side, with a spray of Pam in the skillet or a few drops of oil works great - if using flour or hard shell tortillas, warm as directed.
  • While shrimp are frying, begin heating the tortillas for serving – keep them in a warm oven, or a tortilla warmer if you have one.
  • Heat butter, olive oil and seasonings in skillet over medium heat; add shrimp.
  • Stir-fry until shrimp are done, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Remove shrimp from pan and serve immediately with the tortillas and toppings for everyone to make their own to their liking.

    Thought I'd had about every kinda taco ever was. Now I gotta make this one to keep the faith. Why am I not upset about that? Like most food Mexican, lots of prep but this one should be worth the effort. Thanks for the post.

    I have had shrimp tacos on the brain for a while and was just waiting to come upon a recipe I liked. I like yours! Instead "spicy mayo", I call mine a "chipolte aioli". Gotta love a silver tongued chef, right? ;-)
