We have decided to start a blog to share our recipes and to also keep them in a place we can easily access them. We hope you enjoy them and the little tid bits of our lives that we throw in. Most recipes will be based on primal principles although a few non-primal baked goods may slip in :)

Angela's Shrimp Tacos!

On this rainy Monday, Adam and I decided to do a semi-primal Mexican dish to make us think of warm sunny days :). It is another easy recipe and good for a Monday.

Shrimp Tacos:


shrimp (as many as you think you need, we used a package of 30-35 cocktail shrimp)
iceberg lettuce
2 roma tomatos
half of a red onion
1 teaspoon of chopped fresh cilantro
juice from half a lime
1 teaspoon of
1 can of corn
1 can of black beans

For marinade:
4 teaspoons of olive oil
1 teaspoon of sauce from a can of chipotles en adobo (it could use a little more if you like a kick. Also you do not use all of the adobo sauce/chipotles so just freeze the rest)
zest of lime (used the lime from above)
1 tablespoon of lime juice (again used half of the lime from above)
2 cloves of garlic minced
1/4 teaspoon of salt

Mix marinade together and marinade shrimp for 20 minutes.

While that is marinading, warm corn and beans together. Pull the lettuce leaves apart and place on plate in fridge.

Dice the tomato and onion, mix it with the cilantro and lime juice, YUM homemade salsa.

Once the shrimp is done marinading, saute in pan until they turn white.

Put all in the lettuce leaves and enjoy! We also put on some sour cream, you could also put on some cheese.
