Cooking instructions

How to cook the shrimp

  1. Add the fresh shrimp to a bowl, along with 1-2 teaspoons of onion powder and old bailey seasoning. Mix ingredients well.
  2. Add two tablespoons of olive oil (alternatively, you can use coconut or avocado oil) to a skillet/frying pan on medium to high heat.
  3. Add chopped onions, chopped tomatoes, and fresh cilantro to the heated pan to release flavors before adding the shrimp.
  4. Next, add your seasoned shrimp to the hot pan. Mix all the ingredients and sauté for 5-8 minutes until shrimp is cooked through.

How to prepare the guacamole sauce

  1. Add three diced avocados to a bowl, along with some freshly chopped onions, tomatoes, cilantro, and green onions. Mix well to infuse all those flavors.
  2. Add onion powder and lime juice to the bowl, and mash the ingredients into a creamy, guacamole dip consistency.

How to prepare the tortilla tacos

  1. Add the oil (avocado or coconut oil are healthier choices) of your choice to a high-heat skillet.
  2. Fry one tortilla wrap for 30 seconds to get a golden brown color. And then fold the tortilla wrap to form a taco shell. Fry for an additional 30 seconds until the tortilla retains its new shape. Allow the taco shells to cool.
  3. Finally, fill the taco shells with the cooked shrimp. Top with guacamole sauce, sour cream, shredded cheese, and garnish with some fresh cilantro.
