Chipotle Shrimp Tacos
All of us at goop are pretty taco-obsessed and we loved this chipotle shrimp recipe. It’s garlicky, savory, and smoky with just the right amount of heat.
1 pound medium peeled and deveined wild shrimp, tails removed
¾ teaspoon sea salt + extra for sprinkling
½ teaspoon chipotle chile powder (or less to make it less spicy)
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon natural cane sugar, brown sugar or maple sugar
¼ teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
¼ teaspoon chili powder
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 tablespoon unrefined, cold-pressed, extra-virgin olive oil
8 warm corn tortillas (or large lettuce leaves)
1. Rinse shrimp and pat dry with paper towels. Set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the spices, sugar, salt and pepper. Add shrimp and toss to coat.
3. In a large skillet, warm olive oil over medium heat. Add shrimp in one layer and cook until cooked through, about 5-8 minutes, turning halfway.
4. If the shrimp are very large, chop them into bite-size pieces before serving. Season with an extra pinch of salt and serve with tortillas and desired accompaniments.
