  • 2 tsp cilantro, chopped
  • 3 tsp low fat sour cream
  • 5 tsp cold water
  • 1 lb shrimp
  • 1 + 1/2 tsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1 tsp olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1 cup white onion (about half a medium sized onion)
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 6 small-sized soft tortillas
  • 6 tsp Tex Mex light shredded cheese
  • 6 leaves of lettuce, shredded


For the Cilantro Crema:

  1. In a food processor, pulse the chopped cilantro until you reach your desired leaf size.
  2. Add the low-fat sour cream and cold water to the food processor and pulse until well combined. Add more water if you want a runnier consistency.

For the Shrimp Taco Filling:

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, season shrimp with Cajun seasoning and mix well to ensure all shrimp are covered with an even layer of spice.
  2. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Add oil to the hot pan and sauté the onions and garlic until the onions are soft, approximately 3 minutes.
  4. Add the seasoned shrimp to the pan and sauté until cooked through approximately 2 to 3 minutes.

To Serve:

  1. Heat tortillas in the microwave for 10 to 15 seconds, or on a pan on the stove for 30 to 45 seconds. The tortillas should be soft and bend easily without breaking.
  2. Add cheese and lettuce to the tortillas.
  3. Add 3 shrimp to each taco.
  4. Drizzle cilantro crema over the tacos and serve
