Rice & Shrimp Taco - #TacoTuesday #2

I have been meaning to post these taco recipes for quite some time now. These tacos were made almost a year ago, but never got around to posting them on the blog. Hopefully, all the tacos will find a home here soon now. 


8 small tortilla (6 inch ones) - I used the ones made at home - Recipe Here
1 pound medium shrimp (about 25 shrimps)
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp roasted cumin powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 TBS lemon juice
salt to taste
1 tbs oil
1 onion - sliced
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1 cup cooked rice
Chipotle mayonnaise (store bought)


Mix together the cilli powder, roasted cumin powder, garlic powder and salt along with lemon juice and form a paste. To this add the shrimps and coat each piece well with the marinade. Let it sit for atleast an hour. In a wok, add the oil and then cook the shrimps till they curl up and become a pink color - about 4 to 6 minutes. Remove shrimp on a plate.
In the same wok - add the sliced onions and get a nice seat on them on high heat. Remove on a plate.
I just warm the tortillas a bit. You can do this on a griddle or in a microwave too.
To assemble the tacos - take a tortilla, place a tablespoon of rice and then some of the onions. Add about 4 shrimps per taco. Top with chopped cilantro and drizzle some chipotle mayo on top. Serve as is with a side of Pico de Gallo and Guacamole.
