Ingredients

  • 24 Raw Shrimp
  • 1 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 3 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1 tsp Chili Powder
  • 2 tsp Pepper
  • .5 cup(s) Red Onion (diced)
  • .5 Jalapeño Pepper (seeded and diced)
  • 2 Tbsp Cilantro (chopped)
  • 2 Tbsp Lime Juice
  • 1 Taco Shells (or tortillas)
  • 1 Avocado (sliced)
  • 8 Queso Fresco
  • 2 Adobo Seasoning
  • Adobo Seasoning

Directions

  1. Combine all the salsa ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Cover the bowl, put in the refrigerator and let sit while you are making the rest of the recipe.

  2. Combine all of the shrimp marinade ingredients in a bowl and mix until combined. Add the shrimp to the bowl and toss the shrimp in the marinade until all of the surfaces of the shrimp are covered.

  3. Thread the marinated shrimp on to the wooden skewers. Make sure you soak the skewers in water for about 15 minutes before putting the shrimp on so the skewers don’t burn on the grill.

  4. Place the skewers with the shrimp on a grill preheated to medium heat, about 350-375°F. Cook the shrimp for about 3 minutes per side, until the shrimp are not opaque and turn solid in color. Remove from heat and set aside.

  5. Assemble your tacos by putting 3 shrimp in a taco, then adding a spoonful of the salsa, two slices of avocado and finishing with Queso Fresco. Enjoy!
