Shrimp Tempura Taco

Posted by in Dinner, Seafood

This was an accidental recipe. I was really set on making grilled shrimp taco for dinner tonight but dropped the bowl of marinated shrimp as I was about to grill it. I cannot salvage those shrimps since it was covered with ceramic shards from the broken bowl. I don’t have time to prepare a different kind of meal so I quickly thought of a good substitute for my grilled shrimp. I then remembered the frozen shrimp tempura I have in the freezer. I got this from Costco and it does not take long to cook. You just put in the oven for a few minutes until golden brown. However, I discovered that using your toaster oven for this purpose works just as well.

To assemble you will need the following. Tortillas, thinly sliced red cabbage washed and drained, diced tomatoes seeded, avocado slices and cilantro.

Warm your tacos quickly in the microwave for a few seconds. Then take a tortilla and place some shredded cabbage on it. Add your shrimp tempura, diced tomatoes, avocado slices and cilantro. How much you add really depends on you. Drizzle with some sriracha mayo before serving.
