Everyone Loves Tacos!

Tacos are always fun and delicious . . . and they can feed a lot of people. This recipe will make enough for two people, but it's really easy to multiply the ingredients to make more.

These tacos are endlessly customizable. Depending on what you like, you and mix and match to your heart's content (or that of the people you're serving!).

  • Protein options: Chicken, shrimp, or beef are the best options for your protein for these tacos. The recipe I'm showing you here is for shrimp tacos, which I think are delicious.
  • Optional toppings: You can add cheese, olives, onions, tomatoes, avocado, sour cream, sriracha, taco sauce, or lettuce.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 teaspoon basil seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • Pinch thyme seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons butter
