What is camaron tacos made of?
Tacos de camaron are made with very few ingredients. They include:
Shrimp is one of our favorite proteins as it’s low in fat and high in protein. Also, we love it’s quick cooking time.
This is what’s going to give the shrimp it’s flavor. You can also use Cajun seasoning if you prefer as it’s pretty similar to blackened seasoning. Cajun or blackened seasoning is also great on thin sliced chicken breast.
Crispy taco shells
This recipe uses homemade crispy taco shells for the best flavor and texture.
Vegetable, canola or olive oil all work fine in this recipe.
How to make tacos de camaron
Rinse the thawed shrimp in a strainer. Then pat them dry with a paper towel. Season the shrimp with the blackened seasoning. Mix well to make sure they’re evenly coated and set aside.
Heat up the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is hot add the shrimp. I did this in two batches so that the shrimp wasn’t crowded. This will ensure even cooking and allow me to get the best sear on the shrimp. Cook the shrimp for 3 minutes.
Then flip them and continue to cook for another 3 minutes. Transfer the shrimp to a plate and repeat the above steps with the remaining batch of shrimp.
Now you can start assembling the shrimp tacos.
