Baja Lime Grilled Shrimp Tacos

These tangy, spicy Baja Lime Grilled Shrimp Tacos are the perfect summer meal, light but filling - deliciously perfect anytime!


  • 2 lbs. medium size shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • pinch of salt
  • soft flour tortillas
  • Toppings to try: fresh tomatoes, sliced avocados, shredded cheese, shredded cabbage, fresh chopped cilantro


  1. In a large bowl or ziptop bag, toss the shrimp with the olive oil, garlic, juice of 1 lime, smoked paprika, chili powder and a pinch of salt. Toss to coat evenly and allow to marinade for 1-3 hours. I strongly recommend the three hours if you have it, as it retains much more flavor. Otherwise, at least 1 hour is necessary.
  2. After 1-3 hours, heat skillet on medium high. As soon as it's hot, add the shrimp and marinade and cook for 2 minutes. Flip each shrimp and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until cooked through.
  3. Serve on flour tortillas with fresh chopped tomatoes, avocado slices, cheese, cabbage, and fresh chopped cilantro.
