- 1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 8 small corn tortillas
- 1 cup shredded lettuce
- 1 cup diced tomatoes
- 1/2 cup diced red onion
- 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp lime juice
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- Hot sauce (optional)
- Start by marinating the shrimp. In a bowl, combine the olive oil, smoked paprika, cumin, salt, and pepper. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Let them marinate for 15-20 minutes.
- While the shrimp are marinating, prepare the sauce. In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, lime juice, minced garlic, and a dash of hot sauce if you like it spicy. Refrigerate the sauce until ready to use.
- Heat a grill or skillet over medium-high heat. Grill the shrimp for about 2-3 minutes per side or until they turn pink and opaque.
- Warm the corn tortillas on the grill for about 30 seconds per side.
- Assemble your shrimp tacos by placing a few pieces of grilled shrimp on each tortilla. Top with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, red onion, and cilantro.
- Drizzle the creamy lime sauce over the tacos and serve immediately.
