Tacos de Camaron (i.e., Shrimp Tacos) is quick and easy to make! Featuring flavorful shrimp, corn tortillas, cabbage, cilantro, and a creamy Chipotle Sauce.
Add all of the sauce ingredients to a mini food processor and blend until the mixture is homogenous. If you don't have a small processor, dice the cilantro, chipotle pepper, and garlic very fine. Then, add to a bowl with the other sauce ingredients and stir to combine.
Combine all of the dry spices in a small bowl and stir to combine.
Pat each shrimp dry with a paper towel and them to a large mixing bowl, along with 1 tablespoon of oil. Toss until evenly coated. Then, add the seasoning mix and stir until evenly coated once more. Set aside.
Add the remaining oil to a large sauté pan over medium-high heat and allow it to come to temperature. Then, add one single layer of shrimp, leaving a bit of space in between each one.
Cook for about 2 to 2 ½ minutes, then flip and cook for 1 ½ to 2 minutes more on the other side. Repeat the cooking process with any remaining shrimp. The shrimp is ready when it is pink and semi-firm to the touch.
Stack two corn tortillas on top of one another, add 3 to 4 shrimp, about a ¼ cup of shredded cabbage, a squeeze of lime juice across the top, and a sprinkle of chopped cilantro. Drizzle with chipotle sauce or hot sauce (if desired), serve and enjoy!
