15 Minute Crispy Shrimp Taco Recipe

A couple of weeks ago, I joined the Foodbeast team for a “Foodie Day in San Diego”.  I was so excited to see that they had picked some of my favorite local spots to visit, like Basic Pizza and Puesto for tacos!

It was on that fateful Friday that I tried Puesto’s crispy shrimp tacos for the first time and fell in love!

I went home and immediately created a similar recipe that’s made in only 15 minutes!

Chili Lime Rice & Shrimp Taco Salad

Chili Lime Shrimp & Rice Taco Salad Recipe

Last weekend my Dad snapchatted me a picture whipping up Chipotle Lime Chicken Fajita Skewers and Mexican Rice, with the recipes from my blog pulled up in the background.

I know what you’re thinking, yes, my Dad is on Snapchat, and yes, my Mom is on Snapchat, and yes, they’re 60 years old! This is the direct influence of having a daughter that’s a social media enthusiast and professional food blogger. Every time my parents come to visit, I give them tutorials on the latest social media channel. They get on it and suddenly I’m getting snaps from food truck festivals, football games and road trips with geotags and Snapchat filters. The moral of this story is, my parents are not normal parents, they’re cool parents! (Mean Girls reference, anyone?!)

I might not be as cool as my parents, but I do post a lot of food (shocker, I know!) travel and general shenanigans on Snapchat, so feel free to add me, WhitneyMBond, and join the party!

Now that you know all about my parents sick Snapchat game, let’s get to cooking! 😉

Chili Lime Garlic Grilled Shrimp

Yay!!  My first dinner post!! So unfortunately my roomie Nick is moving back to Boston on Tuesday, but fortunately that gave us a great excuse to plan a little going-away dinner for him this weekend that involved surf-and-turf!

Now if you would have asked me 5 years ago what surf-and-turf was I would have probably said some sort of exercise but after venturing in to the seafood world about 3 years ago… yes New Years Day 2009 was my first time to eat anything out of the water IN MY LIFE!  No salmon, no shrimp, no lobster, not even my favorite… crab until this fateful day in 2009! I don’t know how I lived before crab legs, lobster rolls and one of my favorite  things I’ve ever made… Chili-Lime-Garlic Grilled Shrimp!

Now there’s still that fishy (get it, fishy, haha) story out there that my parents always try to tell me about how I ate fish sticks from Hardee’s when I was about 9 years old because I thought they were chicken strips, but all the same, for the purpose of this post we’ll say my first fish experience was in 2009 (besides I don’t know if you can consider fish sticks from Hardee’s really fish!)

Back to the dinner…so, as soon as the boys (my two roommates) decided on surf-and-turf for dinner I knew I had to make these grilled shrimp.  I made them once before on Father’s Day this year and they were to-die-for!

Garlic Chili Lime Grilled Shrimp Recipe

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 15-20 large shrimp (peeled & deveined)
