Shrimp Tacos with Strawberry Salsa

  • 1 1/2 lb medium shrimp, peeled and de-veined
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds (We love the Wild Mountain Cumin from Burlap & Barrel!)
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika

  • A few shakes of kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp chili pepper flakes
  • 2 Tb fresh lime juice

  • Avocado Sauce (recipe follows)
  • Strawberry Salsa¬†(recipe follows)
  • 1/2 C queso fresco, crumbled
  • Flour tortillas and cooked white rice, for serving
  1. Mix together garlic cloves and dry spices. Toss shrimp in spice blend and let rest 20-30 minutes at room temperature. (While shrimp is marinating, make your salsas/sauces!)
  2. Skewer and grill shrimp just a few minutes on each side until done. Remove from skewers and toss with fresh lime juice and cilantro. Cover bowl and let rest while heating up tortillas.
  3. Spoon a little rice into middle of warmed flour tortilla. Place four or five shrimp on top. Drizzle with avocado sauce, spoon a little strawberry salsa and top with some crumbled queso fresco, wrap and serve hot.
