Shrimp Tacos

It’s never been easier to serve tacos for dinner. Using the 5-A-Day Salad from the serve yourself Take-Out Salad bar means a minimum of chopping, cutting and mixing. Just sauté up the shrimp and serve.

Shrimp Tacos

Start to finish: 20 minutes
Hands on time: 20 minutes


2 tablespoons olive oil
2 green onions, chopped
1 lb shrimp, deveined and tails removed
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
Juice of one lime
4 flour tortillas
1 large container 5-A-Day Salad, about 1 ½ lb


Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet until it shimmers. Add the onions, shrimp, salt and pepper and toss the shrimp in the hot skillet until cooked through, about 4 minutes. Stir in the cilantro and lime juice and keep hot.

Wrap the tortillas in microwave-safe plastic and nuke them for about 30 seconds to warm them up.

Arrange a warmed tortilla on a plate and spread a line of salad down the center. Top with the shrimp and roll up the sides and bottom to enclose the filling. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and filling. Serve hot.
