...lacy's shrimp tacos with fresh pineapple salsa...

(photo from Whole Foods)

Last week it warmed up and was an incredible tease.  We had dinner at a friends house where they made delicious shrimp tacos with equally delicious pineapple salsa.  I sadly didn't take any pictures so this here shot is thanks to Whole Foods.  The recipe itself is also thanks to that fine store.

When the weather heats up again I'll be making these myself.  So fresh and healthy and definitely a crowd pleaser.  Until then we've had snow and the heater is back on.  So over winter right now.

Serves 4

This recipe can be prepared a day ahead and assembled right before serving since allowing the shrimp to pickle and salsa to marinate overnight enhances their flavors. 


1 pound frozen cooked and peeled baby shrimp, thawed 
1/2 cup finely chopped white onions 
1/4 cup distilled white vinegar 
1/4 cup lime juice 
2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic 
1 teaspoon lime zest 
1 teaspoon whole cumin seeds 
Salt to taste 
2 cups finely chopped pineapple 
1/4 cup chopped cilantro 
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes 
8 corn taco shells, prepared according to package directions 
1 avocado, peeled, pitted and thinly sliced


In a large bowl, combine shrimp, onions, vinegar, lime juice, garlic, zest, cumin seeds and salt; set aside. In a medium bowl, combine pineapple, cilantro, pepper flakes and salt. Cover both bowls with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or preferably overnight. 
Serve up the tacos as you'd like with the pineapple salsa, avocado slices, and whatever other fixings you'd prefer.  Thanks, Whole Foods & Lacy- good work!
