Entertaining Idea: Galentine's Day, Taco Night
I thought this taco recipe for you Galentine's day party would be a good change of pace from every other blog out there doing gift guides for him, DIY crafts, etc. I feel like real people don't actually get use out of them and I wanted to create something useful for not just Valentine's day, but also a a week from now when you don't know what to cook!! That is the point of Sarah Gross Design, helping other people learn from what I already know.
And also who doesn't love a good taco recipe especially eating them with your best friends! I was inspired by Half Baked Harvest's 20 minute Caribbean shrimp taco recipe. I love all of her posts, but to be honest I can never gather all of the right ingredients, so this is my simpler take that I know every single one of you can do!
You can download this grocery list and recipe card, so there is no thought needed! Read below for instructions.
Spicy Sour Creme
1/4 cup sour creme
1/2 juice lime
1 tsp-2tsp chili lime salt (trader joe's)
1 pound shrimp (frozen or fresh)
1 tbsp chili lime salt
salt and pepper to taste
1 bag corn tortillas / 1 avocado
2 medium size tomatoes
1/8 white onion
1 juice of a lime
1 handful of cilantro
Pinch of salt and pepper
1 handful cilantro
1/2 juice lime
Prep your toppings
Fresh salsa: Dice tomatoes, onion and jalapeno and toss into your bowl. Then roughly chop your cilantro and add to your bowl. Squeeze the juice of your lime and add salt and pepper. Mix everything together and let sit in the fridge, having it sit there for 30mins-1 hour will help the flavors mix together.
Mango salsa: chop mango and cilantro and add to a bowl. Then squeeze your lime and add to the mango and cilantro mix. Leave in the fridge.
Spicy sour creme: mix together sour creme, lime juice, and chili lime salt.
Heat up your pan with a teaspoon of olive oil in it. Toss your shrimp in chili lime salt, and pepper. Add 1/2 your shrimp to the hot pan and cook each side until the shrimp is pink and cooked through. Put on a plate with a paper towel on it and cook the other half of your shrimp.
If you have a gas stove, turn on a burner onto medium-high heat and place your corn tortillas directly onto the burner. Flip tortillas until the outside is a little crispy and the entire tortillas is warm. Make around 4-6 of these and keep in a kitchen towel, so they stay warm. (Modification: for electric stoves, place tortillas in a dry hot pan and cook until edges are crispy and the tortilla is warm)
Put spicy sour creme, fresh salsa, mango salsa, avocado, and shrimp on your taco. Sprinkle some cilantro and a squeeze of lime to garnish and you are all set!
