Mmmm, tacos. I love tacos and I love that you can make just about any kind of taco you want.
Today we are having Shrimp Tacos with Broccoli Slaw Pico de Gallo. Tiffany just absolutely loves my Pico de Gallo. She will eat it on anything. So when I make it, I make a lot to last her for days to come. This day was no exception. The only difference was that I added an ingredient that I haven’t added before. Broccoli Slaw.
Have you tried broccoli slaw? Neither had we until I picked up a bag of it in the grocery store. A-maz-ing.
I wanted to make these shrimp tacos a bit lighter than I have in the past and I wanted to make the work a bit easier for me as well.
I didn’t time myself but I truly think I had dinner made and on the table in about 10 minutes. Oh, yea you read that right. Ten Minutes.
The only difference between my Shrimp Tacos with Broccoli Slaw Pico de Gallo and Tiffany’s shrimp tacos was the tortillas themselves. I love corn tortillas and she loves flour tortillas.
There are days that I’m in the mood to make everything from scratch. I’ve been known to make the pasta in a dish, make the butter and so forth. Today was not that day. I have made both corn tortillas and flour tortillas in the past. Yea, not today. The tortillas that you can buy in grocery stores taste awesome. lol.
I also saved some time by not making the broccoli slaw or the shrimp.
I know you know how time-consuming it is to peel, devein then cook shrimp to just perfect. I’m sorry, rather not sorry I just wasn’t in the mood for all of that today. So I took a little help from the store and bought already peeled, deveined, and cooked shrimp. To make them my own I added my own seasoning to them and warmed them up in the microwave. Yep, one minute and they were ready to go.
Ok, so you’re asking exactly what did I make myself then? Why the Pico De Gallo of course. I told you, Tiffany loves my Pico De Gallo so of course, I had to make that.
40-60 medium Shrimp, Peeled, deveined, and cooked.
Use your favorite taco seasonings and mix them with the Shrimp.
2 cups of Broccoli Slaw (found in the bag at the grocery store)
1 medium Onion minced
2 large Roma tomatoes seeded and chopped
I clove Garlic finely minced
The Juice of 1 med-large lemon, grate the rind and use it too
1 Jalapeno Pepper seeded and minced
1 bunch Cilantro chopped
Salt and Pepper to taste.
Your choice of flour or corn tortillas.
Mix it all in a large bowl. This makes more than enough for dinner and then some.
I may put Broccoli Slaw in my Pico de Gallo from now on. This is so crunchy and so so fresh.
Put the Shrimp in a bowl and stick them in the microwave. You just want to warm them up. And hey a bonus, after I warmed them up there was some shrimp juice at the bottom of the bowl. Yea I don’t know any other way of saying that than shrimp juice. No matter it’s good and I topped my tacos with it. Cook the tortillas however you like just make sure they are in fact cooked.
