Baja Shrimp Tacos

This just sounded like something that would go well when making guacamole, so I pretty much went out, bought some shrimp, and threw this together. I added the onions and lime as an afterthought when I had some leftover from the guacamole recipe, but it actually turned out REALLY well.

1 lb. Shrimp, Peeled and De-veined
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

1/2 Small Onion, Diced

1 Teaspoon Garlic Chili Paste

1/2 Lime

Salt to taste

Other ingredients: Taco shells (Or whatever you want to use), other taco toppings of choice... I used guacamole, lettuce, and a little dab of ranch.


Cut the shrimp into small pieces. Meanwhile, heat olive oil and garlic chili paste on medium high heat. Once oil starts to bubble a little bit, throw in shrimp, squeeze the lime juice over the shrimp, and toss to coat.

Let shrimp cook for a few minutes (this is a good time to throw taco shells in the oven if that is what you are using!), then add the chopped onions and toss again. Allow to cook, stirring occasionally, until shrimp are pink and opaque.

Serve as desired... whether it be in taco shells, tortillas, etc!
