Tacos YES my favorite easy, but super delicious thing to make on the week night. This tacos are made with so much fresh ingredients and the Cajun spices make those Tacos out of bounce. Cajun Shrimp Tacos with Avocado Sauce -this is full of flavor, dynamite Tacos. You have, the spicy, the crunchy and the creaminess of the sauce. We are talking about really amazing combination of heat and spices and when you add fresh cabbage slow and my dynamite avocado sauce you are gonna love this Recipe and make this tacos a few times a week.

This are some healthy and delicious tacos you need to try. They are my family’s favorite and my favorite part is that doesnt take a ton of time to make something super delicious.

This recipe start with marinating the shrimp for 10-15 minutes. Then making the the Avocado Sauce and the crispy cabbage slaw. I think that when you making taco you need to have a few components that are different in texture flavors. You need to have the crunchy element, the spicy element and really good sauce and you are having amazing tacos full of flavors with only few fresh ingredients.

While you marinade the shrimps you can make your avocado sauce, or even better if you prepared it the night before. The other good thing about this sauce is that you can use it on salads, as a dip and can be refrigerated for a few days.

You can also use whatever tortilla you prefer, I use flour if you can make fresh ones even better.

You Need:

Shrimp (uncooked)1 pound
Garlic Cloves2
Cajun Seasoning1 1/2 Tbsp.
Olive Oil2 Tbsp.
Saltto taste
Black Pepperto taste
Paprika 1/2 tsp.
Lime Juice1 lemon
Yellow Bell Peppers1
Sweet Onion1

For the Avocado Sauce

Avocado (ripe and pitted)1
Olive Oil1/4 cup
Salt1/2 tsp
Black Pepper1/2 tsp.
Fresh Dill1 Tbsp.
Water3/4 cup
Garlic Clove1 small


Start with making the Avocado sauce, you can make it the night before if you like, it will taste even better. In a blender add all the ingredients listed above for the sauce and blended until smooth. Transfer it in a bowl and put it a side.

Marinate the shrimp, make sure they are deveined and its optional to keep the tails off, I did. Put them in a bowl and drizzle the olive oil, add the garlic, Cajun seasoning, salt, pepper, paprika and the juice from a lime. Marinated for only 10-15 minutes, not longer otherwise the acidity will cook the shrimp and when you place them in the pan they will be overcooked and rubbery.

In a medium size skillet or cast iron skillet over medium heat add 4-5 tbsp. olive oil and cook shrimp for 2-3 minutes or until no longer are pink. It is important to not overcrowd the pan, otherwise you will end up with boiled shrimp not crispy and juicy ones. Remove shrimp from pan after you finished cooking them. In the same pan sauté onion and bell peppers, sprinkle with the Cajun seasoning, salt and Pepper to taste and cook until they are soft and have brown edges. Take it from the stove and put it a side.

It is time to make those delicious tacos. I like to have all condiments ready before assembling the tacos. You can do whatever you like and add it to your taco, but I always have jalapeno, cabbage slow, fresh slices of avocado and my favorite avocado sauce. It is optional but I like to have also a yougurt or sour cream sauce as well.

Charred your tortillas over open flame on the stove, and then add your favorite toppings, Cajun shrimp and drizzle the avocado and yougurt sauce on top.

Make yourself a Margarita and enjoy!
