Updated: Sep 30, 2023

Neon sign reading "Old Bay Shrimp Tacos" with a cartoon taco who has shrimp floating into it through a beam of light.

Friday night I had invited friends over earlier in the week and forgot to prep a meal, I had to think quick and come up with something appetizing for my foodie friends. These tacos are not only simple to make but gives the illusion of intense effort with handmade corn tortilla's, grilled shrimp & guacamole from scratch. ..its also freaking delicious!


Shrimp Tacos

Taco shells:

Shrimp filling



  • 1 Cup Shredded Cabbage

  • 1 Chopped head of Cilantro

  • 1/2 Cup corn (optional)


For Shells:

  1. To make the shells simply combine the water & corn flour until it can form a solid ball. Once your ball is formed, cover and allow to sit for 30 mins.

  2. While waiting allow cast iron pan to heat up to medium heat.

  3. Next form 8 smaller balls and flatten using a tortilla press or rolling pin. One by one, add your tortillas onto the pan and cook for about 2-3 mins on each side (everyone's stove is different so keep a close eye that they do not burn)

For Shrimp:

  1. With the same preheated pan on medium heat add the oil & onion and cook until the onion us translucent (7ish mins).

  2. Next add the shrimp, paprika & old bay seasoning and cook on high for 2-3 minutes (or until done), stir constantly.

For Guacamole:

  1. Mash the Avocado until its the consistency you desire, then mix with the lime juice and seasoning.

Now the fun part is putting it all together and adding your own flare with additional toppings!
