Rated 4.5 based on 5 customer reviews


  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 pound peeled, deveined shrimp
  • 8 corn tortillas


  1. Stir together 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil, sriracha, lime zest and juice, and salt in a large bowl. Stir in shrimp to coat, then cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate until you’re ready to grill, allowing shrimp to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Clean and oil the grates.
  3. Brush tortillas on both sides with the remaining oil.
  4. Grill shrimp until cooked through and slightly charred, about 2 minutes per side.
  5. While grilling shrimp, place tortillas over indirect heat to warm and lightly char.
  6. Build tacos by adding several shrimp to a tortilla.
Mealthy tip:

Substitute your favorite hot sauce for the sriracha - Cholula is a favorite! If spice isn't your thing, just add more citrus. Additional lime, lemon or orange all taste great.

Great recipe with some great taste. I would certainly add either guacamole or some sort of salsa to the tacos to complete the taste. Since I am from Mexico I must always have salsa on my tacos. Would certainly recommend a pineapple or a tamarind salsa with these.

Very quick and tasty recipe to whip up for lunch or dinner. Love to make this with the addition of picked red onions and cotija. Make sure to add avocado for that extra layer of creaminess needed in this dish.

A good recipe for grilled shrimp but as a taco this needed more. Please add more Salsa recipes to your site. These would have been great with a spicy fresh tomatillo salsa.
