With #July4th almost here, it’s time to get the holiday started right with my super easy Jerk Shrimp Tacos that are seasoned in the most delicious marinade starring @lawryseassoning. The sauce is sweet with a nice kick that is unforgettable! I can't imagine any summer grilling without this recipe front and center on the menu! #TasteOf #Ad
Servings: 5-6 tacos
Ingredients ● 1 tablespoon olive oil ● ½ medium sized onion, chopped ● ¼ cup fresh lime juice ● ¼ cup fresh orange juice ● 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar, packed ● 1 tablespoon honey ● 2 teaspoons garlic powder ● 1 teaspoon allspice ● 1 teaspoon ginger ● 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon ● 1 teaspoon Lawry’s seasoned salt (plus more for seasoning) ● ½ teaspoon paprika ● ¼ teaspoon cayenne ● ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg ● ¼ teaspoon ground cloves ● Black pepper to taste ● 1 pound deveined shrimp ● Optional: Corn tortillas, pico de gallo, cilantro, limes and red cabbage for serving.
1. To make marinade, add olive oil to medium sized pan over medium heat. Saute onion until tender.
2. Next add cooked onion, lime juice, orange juice, brown sugar, honey and all spices including 1 teaspoon of Lawry’s to a blender or food processor and grind until smooth.
3. Pour marinade into a large plastic bag and add deveined shrimp completely submerging in the marinade. Seal and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes (no more than 30). 4. Remove shrimp from marinade, season lightly with additional lawry’s and black pepper and add 4 to each skewer and grill about 2-3 minutes on each side. Shrimp cook very quickly so watch and turn as soon as they begin to turn pink then remove once done.
5. Remove shrimp from skewers and add to tortillas. Serve with pico de gallo, cilantro, limes, and shredded red cabbage or other favorite taco favorites.
