  • 1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 small corn tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Hot sauce (optional)


  1. Start by marinating the shrimp. In a bowl, combine the olive oil, smoked paprika, cumin, salt, and pepper. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Let them marinate for 15-20 minutes.
  2. While the shrimp are marinating, prepare the sauce. In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, lime juice, minced garlic, and a dash of hot sauce if you like it spicy. Refrigerate the sauce until ready to use.
  3. Heat a grill or skillet over medium-high heat. Grill the shrimp for about 2-3 minutes per side or until they turn pink and opaque.
  4. Warm the corn tortillas on the grill for about 30 seconds per side.
  5. Assemble your shrimp tacos by placing a few pieces of grilled shrimp on each tortilla. Top with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, red onion, and cilantro.
  6. Drizzle the creamy lime sauce over the tacos and serve immediately.
