Spicy Shrimp Tacos

Kacey's Kitchen - Shrimp Taco's 4

Alright. I have a bad blogger confession for you. I made something so delicious that I quickly gobbled it down swearing that there is no way I could forget how to make something so good.

And well...you guess it. That's exactly what happened. These few pictures and the memory I have of them are the only thing that remains. Sure, I could guess what I did, what ingredients I used, which is what I'm going to do. But it will remain as that. A guess. I promise you though, my guess will be close, and you'll have to use your best kitchen judgment for the measurements, but it will be delicious!

  1. Mmmm....I want to eat this! :)

  2. I hate how everyone has bad connotations with fish or seafood tacos. If only they could taste these... Thanks for sharing.

  3. These really were so delicious and so easy to put together!

    Mark - I agree! In fact, one of my biggest pet peeves are people who have picky food habits. I try to insist upon people to try things at least once, although it's better to try things more than once to get a good feel for it. Anyway, thanks for check this out, I'll be checking out your blog shortly!

  4. I tried to favorite this on photgrazing but it wouldn't let me. These look awesome and this type of food is my all time favorite! The spices you put on the shrimp are the same ones we use! Great post!

  5. how much of each ingredient...??

  6. Honestly, I never measured. All the spices are pretty spicy, so I would add little bits at a time and taste it on a shrimp. If it needs more, add more. It might not be the answer you were looking for...but it's how I cook!
