Grilled Shrimp Tacos

Matt Moore


  • 1 Pound  medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/4 Cup  extra-virgin olive oil
  •   Zest and juice from 1 lime
  • jalapeño, sliced
  • 1/4 Teaspoon  chili powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon  cumin powder
  •   Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  •   Soft flour tortillas, warmed
  •   Jack cheese, grated, for garnish
  •   Red cabbage, shredded, for garnish
  •   Cilantro, minced, for garnish
  •   Hot sauce, for garnish

Inspired by a dish served at Tower 7 in North Carolina, this shrimp recipe conjures up the fresh and exotic flavors of the beachside town and is simple and easy to make.


Combine and mix the first 7 ingredients into a large bowl and allow to sit for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, heat a grill pan over medium-high heat.

Add the entire contents of the bowl onto the grill pan and cook until shrimp are bright pink and firm, about 2-3 minutes.

Begin assembling tacos by adding a layer of cheese, followed by the shrimp, and the remaining ingredients on top of the tortillas. Serve immediately.
