Shrimp Tacos with homemade Pico de Gallo!
This was a really easy meal that I threw together Thursday night after Karate. I had steamed the shrimp up the night before to help save time and made the pico de gallo during the afternoon. This helped so much in feeding everyone at a decent hour! To make the shrimp all I did was steam them in some water with a little beer mixed in. Them set them in the fridge to cool until the next night. For the pico de gallo I really didn't have a recipe. I cut up a white onion, probably about 10 campari tomatoes (they were the ones that were going to go to waste 1st) seeded (just cut them in halve and squeeze the seeds out), 1 jalapeño pepper finely chopped, 1/2 of a bunch of fresh cilantro (roughly chopped), salt, pepper, juice of 1 lime and garlic powder. The salt, pepper and garlic powder were just to taste. I then let it all sit together in the fridge.
For the taco I took some tortilla shells piled them with about 10 shrimp, bunch of pico de gallo and some fresh avocado and called it dinner. It really doesn't get much easier than that for a busy week night dinner or a fun meal with some friends!!!
