Taco Tuesday

I simply couldn’t find the words to explain how delicious these tacos are, but I guess the title says it all.

These shrimp tacos are spicy and delicious.

They are served with my favourite salsa and my special guacamole.

These salsas are perfect for the tacos because it helps balance the heat and add a delicious flavour.

Instructions:

For my Guacamole, I always like to use my blender instead of making it the traditional way just so I can avoid the kitchen mess.

I ‘ll start by adding peeled white onion, a clove of garlic, salt, lime juice, olive oil and 2 cups of cilantro into the container.


Then blend 1-2 minutes, scraping down the sides of the container with a spatula a few times, until a smooth paste forms.

Then add 3 avocados and blend it all together.

Guacamole should be smooth and silky!


For the salsa, i will be using again the blender by adding 4 tomatoes, red onion, a small garlic, lime juice and ½ cup pf coriander, blend for a few minutes til the salsa is smooth.


Shrimp Tacos:

Wash and peel the shrimps before placing in them in a large bowl for seasoning.

Add onion powder, cayenne pepper, salt , pepper,garlic, olive oil and sugar.

Mix it up and let it rest.

In a pan , medium low tempreture fry the onions, cabbage, tomatoes and cilantro with some olive oil.

Mix it all together just until the onion become translusent.

Then add the shrimps into the pan and let it bake, until the shrimps become orange between 6- 8 minutes.
