Shrimp and Guacamole Tacos

Esta entrada también está disponible en: Español

Today I would like to present a dish I originally published in 2010, Shrimp and Guacamole Tacos. Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best. Guacamole with shrimp pair so well, and they are both fast and easy to make.

It all starts with butter, garlic and shrimp. Who can resist that combination?

Add to that fresh, crunchy iceberg lettuce and creamy guacamole, and the whole combination elevates to a level greater than its already delicious parts. They are perfect anytime and work great during Lent.

To save time, I recommend purchasing shrimp that is already cleaned, deveined, peeled with tails removed. There are likely high quality choices in the freezer aisle at your supermarket. If you have the good fortune to live on or close to the coast, fish markets are another excellent option.
