Soft Shrimp Tacos

This post may include affiliate links.

Mix things up on taco night by swapping beef and chicken for deliciously seared shrimp. Layer the shrimp with crisp romaine lettuce, avocado, tomatoes, and low fat Greek yogurt on fresh tortillas. You”ll enjoy every refreshing and delectable bite!

Make these tacos a full meal by incorporating a complementary side dish, such as our Skinny Mexican Rice or Quinoa with Black Beans. If you’re craving something sweeter, Tropical Fruit Salsa would also be a scrumptious topping for these shrimp tacos. If using, omit the chopped tomatoes, any taco sauce, or tomato salsa. The tropical salsa doesn’t go so well with tomatoes.

Serve these up with our fun, clean-drinking beverages, Zingy Pink Grapefruit Soda or Skinny Homemade Ginger Ale.

    These were so good! My family absolutely raved about them. I was sold on the homemade saltless taco seasoning, which is why we tried them. My husband, who is a renowned plain yogurt hater, absolutely loved the plain greek on the tacos. Thank you for sharing!
