Taco time!

I love tacos! Meat tacos, fish tacos, pulled pork tacos, you name it. I love them. Anyways, made these ones for my parents a while back. Instead of using tortillas I made them with lettuce leaves, super tasty and no carbs, if you’re in to that.

For about 4 people you’ll need..

For the tacos;

About 20 medium size shrimps, peeled

One garlic clove, grated

¼ of a red cabbage, finely shredded

½ a cucumber, peeled and chopped

Lettuce leaves

1 Lime, cut into wedges


Olive oil

Salt and pepper

For the Pico de gallo

1 box of cherry tomatoes, chopped

Cilantro, roughly chopped (as much as you like)

3 tbsp white or spring onion, finely chopped

Coarse salt

The juice from ½ lime

Some olive oil

Green jalapeños, finely chopped (as much as you’d like)

For the Guacamole

2 ripe avocados

2 tablespoons white or spring onion, finely chopped

3 tablespoons cilantro, roughly chopped

1 lime

Coarse salt

    1. Start with cutting/chopping/shredding all of the veggies.
    2. Now to the Pico de gallo, which is super easy, just put all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix.
    3. It’s guacamole time. Cut each avocado in half, remove and reserve the pits and score the flesh inside of the shells. Scoop the avocado into a mixing bowl and mash gently with a fork; you don’t want it to be completely smooth. Stir in the onion and cilantro. Cut the lime in half and squeeze in enough juice to taste. Season the guacamole with salt, and either serve immediately or stick the pits in to keep it from browning (remove the pits before serving).
    4. Quickly fry the shrimps, for about 3 minutes on each side, in olive oil with garlic, salt and pepper. They are done when meat turns white.
    5. Arrange the tacos as you like them.
    6. Eat!
