Shrimp Tacos with Chipotle Sauce

I posted the recipe for chipotle sauce a few weeks ago.  Since I had made the sauce I couldn’t let it go to waste so I cooked up some shrimp and made these delicious shrimp tacos.   They were so good I thought I would share the recipe with you.

You will need:

2 lbs shrimp (shelled and cleaned)

4 cloves of garlic

2 tbs olive oil

The zest and juice of 1 lime



Chipotle sauce


Place the shrimp in a bowl, add minced garlic, lime zest, lime juice, salt and pepper to taste.  Mix the shrimp thoroughly.  Place olive oil in a large skillet and allow to heat up over a medium to high flame until the oil just begins go smoke and shimmer.  Place shrimp into the hot skillet and saute until done.

Build your shrimp taco.  Take a tortilla and brush on the chipotle sauce to taste, add coleslaw, and top with shrimp, shred some cilantro as a finishing touch.  Eat and enjoy.   This meal is quick simple and delicious.
