Simple Shrimp Tacos, Ranch-Style

Leave a comment

I am beyond excited as I just booked our tickets to Rancho La Puerta for this summer.  If you haven’t seen my segment on this property watch  my PBS show Senior Moments (It’s the last segment) I have been there twice before and trust me…the food is amazing!!  Here is a recipe for their yummy Shrimp Tacos.
By Kathryn B.

“Simple” doesn’t refer to the shrimps’ IQ, but to the quick and easy marinade that gives these tacos their distinctive south-of-the-border flavor.  The perfect light meal for late, warm Spring days.  “Mexican” oregano is available in most markets’ Hispanic foods section.

Makes about 12 tacos.

Ingredients:

    • 1 ½ lbs clean shrimp (each about 2 inches long)
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 1 tb fresh lime or lemon juice
    • 1 tsp Mexican oregano
    • 1 tsp sea salt
    • ½ tsp fresh ground black pepper
    • 1 tsp olive oil
    • 12 warm tortillas
    • Avocado (optional)

Directions:

Peel, de-vein and butterfly shrimp. Place in ceramic or glass bowl with all other ingredients, mixed well. Cover, refrigerate and allow to marinate for an hour. Preheat grill and cook shrimp 1-2 minutes per side. Quickly warm tortillas on a non-oiled, flat stove-top cast-iron grill or pan (comal). This is an important step toward authenticity (in Mexico, tortillas are seldom if ever warmed in a microwave or wrapped in foil in the oven). Place shrimp in tortillas and top with any manner of favorite toppings, including shredded green cabbage, salsa, chopped white onion and cilantro, etc.
