Healthy Shrimp Tacos

By: Joie Rizzo

Raise your hand if you love tacos! Well, I can’t see you but im sure you raised your hand otherwise why else would you click on this blog? So something i’ve come across lately that I love is shrimp, I don’t know why I always avoided shrimp, I think because they are higher in sodium and cholesterol I always thought they were bad. This is not the case, while yes, they are higher in sodium they are also a very lean source of protein! So I came up with this super healthy and easy recipe for shrimp tacos and avocado lime dressing!

For the shrimp:

4oz medium de-veined shrimp

1 tsp coconut oil

2 tablespoons of lime juice

1/4 tsp chipotle Mrs dash seasoning

1/4 tsp paprika

1/4 tsp of salt

1/4 tsp of pepper

1 tsp minced garlic



Place oil and shrimp in pan on medium/high heat let shrimp get slightly pink. Add in lime juice and seasonings. Simmer and stir occasionally.


Avocado ranch dressing: (makes about 8 servings)

1 avocado

1/4 cup lime juice

1/2 teaspoon garlic

1/8 tsp pepper

1/4 tsp of ssalt

3 tablespoons of coconut oil

1/4 cup water

1/8 tsp cumin

Directions: Add all ingredients into food processor or blender, process until smooth. Refrigerate for up to a week.



2 Mission carb balance  flour tortillas

2 slices of fresh pineapple (diced)

shredded lettuce

fresh pico de gallo (optional)

Next take shrimp and place on 2 “Mission carb balance Flour tortillas”. Plop a little dressing on both and add toppings! Enjoy!!
