Well it’s been a great morning. I had the honor and privilege being on channel PHL 17′s Philly Eye Opener. I cooked up some yummy Shrimp Tacos with a slaw and some guacamole. Super easy recipe to make any night of the week. Another thing that is great about this recipe is that the seasonings are all pretty much the same for the Shrimp, Slaw and Guacamole.
Also featured were my wonton chili cups, and a passion fruit mousse that I have mentioned on Homemade Delish before. Below I will have the recipe and the link of today’s show for your viewing pleasure
ingredients/ Preparation Shrimp:
1 1/2 lbs of Shrimp
1/4 cup of Tequila
Zest and Juice of 1 Lime ( I used the Edgeware Better Zester to make things a little easier)
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 teaspoon of Garlic Powder
1/2 Teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper (if you would like it a little hotter or mild measure to your taste)
Marinate for at least 1 hour. Add about 2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil to a Skillet preferably one that is grill like (Anolon is the one I used). Cook for about 5 minutes depending on the size of the Shrimp.
Ingredients/Preparation for Slaw:
3 Cups of Cole Slaw
1/2 Cup of Sour Cream
1/3 cup of Mayo
Zest of 1 Lime (Edgeware Better Zester)
Salt & Pepper (or to Taste)
1/2 Teaspoon Cayenne (or to Taste)
1/2 Teaspoon of Garlic Powder
Mix everything together and put aside.
Ingredients/Preparation for Guacamole:
Juice of half a Lime
Salt & Pepper
1 Teaspoon of Garlic Powder ( or 3 Garlic Gloves, minced)
6 Pieces of Green Onions
half Purple Onion, Chopped
1/4 Cup of Cilantro, Chopped
1 Tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
After everything is set and done all you have to do is place everything in a Whole Wheat Tortilla (or regular). In this picture I actually had the taco with some mexican shredded cheddar (for all the cheese lovers). Enjoy!
