Shrimp Tacos

I really need a Mexican food dictionary.  Can someone tell me what is the difference between Soft-Shell Tacos and Fajitas? And are tortillas separate or just a vessel for eating tacos/fajitas?

Anyway, until I get an explanation I call these tajitos- a taco and fajita hybrid. 

Check the recipe for Paleo tortillas and pickled onions for perfect tajito night!

1 tbsp Cumin

½ tbsp Ginger

½ tbsp Chili Powder

1 tsp cayenne

  2. Combine the sauces
  3. Place the shrimp in a large plastic bag

Chimichurri Sauce

Like most of my recipes, this stemmed from a need to use up ingredients in my fridge.  Anytime I buy herbs I always have leftovers because they’re usually used in such small quantities.

This is the perfect recipe to use up the bulk of your extra greens/herbs.  It’s so simple and takes less than 5 minutes to prepare.  I swear I would put this sauce on everything!

I first used it on top of steak in my paleo steak tacos (pictured), but I also love it on chicken, fish, eggs, salads…everything!

 

Chimichurri Sauce

 

4 cups parsley leaves

1 cup mint leaves

4 cloves garlic

½ medium red onion (roughly chopped)

zest of 1 lemon

1 cup olive oil

4 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp white wine vinegar

½ tsp red pepper flakes

pinch of salt to taste

 

  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor
  2. Blend until everything is smooth
  3. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessar
