Tasty Tuesdays: edition number 7

Good afternoon friends and readers. I hope this day finds you well and ready to tackle another culinary delight, all in the name of providing tasty morsels for your lucky tastebuds (and those of your friends and family).

If you have already viewed the post below and found yourself experiencing major food envy, you are in luck with today's recipe. I proudly bring you tequila-lime shrimp tacos and hope you will enjoy them as much as we did on Saturday.

Tequila-lime shrimp tacos

Ingredients:

for the marinade:
1/2 cup tequila
the juice of 3-4 large limes
1 tsp bottle minced garlic
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
the juice of 1/2 orange

1 bag frozen jumbo shrimp, thawed & peeled
1 yellow onion, sliced
1 red pepper, sliced

corn tortillas
cotija cheese
baby spinach
sour cream, optional
guacamole, optional

Whisk the marinade ingredients together in a small bowl. Transfer to a large storage-size ziploc bag. Add the shrimp to the bag and refrigerate for at least one hour (the longer, the better).

While the shrimp marinate, saute the onion and bell pepper in a bit of olive oil. Once done, transfer to a serving platter. Add shrimp to the pan and saute for three-four minutes or just until pink. Arrange shrimp over onions and peppers.

To assemble tacos: warm corn tortilla, place a small amount of spinach on the tortilla, add onions, peppers and shrimp, sprinkle with cheese and add sour cream or guacamole if desired.

Enjoy and have a Tasty Tuesday!
