Easy Shrimp Tacos

From Self's November 2008 feature of Eat Healthy All Week, here is a recipe for shrimp tacos-a quick and easy way to break up the boring lunch or dinner routine.

Shrimp Tacos

Serves 1



  • 1/4 cup canned diced tomatoes
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger


  • 6 oz cooked shrimp (left over from Sunday's dinner), tails removed, chopped
  • 2 soft corn tortillas (6 inches each)
  • 1 carrot, peeled and grated
  • 1/2 large romaine leaf, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 oz goat cheese, crumbled


    1. For salsa

      Blend ingredients in a mini-chopper or blender; set aside.
    2. For tacos

      Divide shrimp between 2 tortillas. Top with carrot, lettuce, cheese and salsa. Fold tortillas in half, wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve. At lunchtime, unwrap and microwave each taco, 20 to 30 seconds.
