The South Bay’s Best Spicy Shrimp Tacos


Living near the ocean you can find your fair share of shrimp tacos, but my favorite are the ones I make at home. Fresh ingredients and good seasoning are key to making good tacos. Whenever I have guests staying over I make a point to cook them up for dinner one of the nights. It’s a good meal to have with guests because you’re eating with your hands and it’s a no-fuss meal. Pair these tacos with your favorite beer or cocktail and you’re tummy will thank you.

The South Bay’s Best Spicy Shrimp Tacos

Serves 2

1/2lb. raw shrimp deveined and tails removed

1 lime zest

1/2 lime juice

olive oil

garlic powder

1 garlic clove, crushed


ground cumin

ground coriander


red pepper flakes



First, combine the shrimp with half of the marinade, and let it sit for at least an hour. Turn the grill on high heat and throw on the shrimp until fully cooked. Before preparing the tacos, place the cooked shrimp in a clean bowl and toss with the rest of the marinade. Prepare tacos as desired.

Note: The seasoning doesn’t have exact measurements because it all depends on personal preferences and taste. Adjust to how you see fit.
