Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: Fifteen Minutes
Total Time: Under an hour

12 medium-sized shrimp (peeled, deveined, tail removed)
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
4 soft corn tortillas
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp lime juice
Zest from one lime
2 cups romaine lettuce, sliced thinly
1 cup red onion, sliced thinly
Sour cream (for topping)
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
Split the shrimp in half lengthways, and mix them with the dry spices; set aside. Quickly brown the corn tortillas in a dry frying pan over high heat (just long enough to darken them in spots). Heat oil over medium-high heat in a frying pan. Once oil is hot, quickly saute shrimp. After 2-3 minutes, once shrimp curls and turns pink, add the lime juice and zest, and deglaze the pan. Remove from heat immediately and build your taco as follows: lettuce, onion, shrimp, sour cream and cilantro. Yield: 4 servings
