Shrimp Tacos with Pineapple

by Jeffrey McCarrell on June 24, 2019

Who's ready for tacos every night of the week? I'm a big fan of tacos and can have them any day of the week. This Shrimp Tacos with Pineapple Salsa recipe is not only delicious but super easy to make.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Pinch of sugar
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/4 medium pineapple, peeled, cored, cut lengthwise into spears, then crosswise 1/2 inch thick (about 2 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 1/4 pounds shrimp, peeled, deveined
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 corn tortillas, warmed
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 jalapeno, very thinly sliced, seeds removed if desired
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves with tender stems
  • Lime wedges (for serving)
  • RECIPE PREPARATION
    1. Place a rack in the highest position in the oven; heat broiler. Toss red onion, lime juice, sugar, and a pinch of salt in a small bowl; set aside.
    2. Toss pineapple and 1 Tbsp. oil on a rimmed baking sheet and arrange in a single layer on half of the baking sheet; reserve bowl. Broil pineapple until lightly charred around the edges, 5-8 minutes.
    3. Meanwhile, toss shrimp, Sriracha, and remaining 1 Tbsp. oil in a reserved bowl until shrimp are evenly coated; season with salt and pepper and toss again.
    4. Remove baking sheet from broiler and use a spatula to turn pineapple pieces over. Arrange shrimp in a single layer on the empty half of baking sheet. Broil until shrimp are cooked through on top, about 2 minutes. If your shrimp are opaque and springy to the touch, they're done. Remove from broiler and turn shrimp (leave pineapple alone). Broil again until shrimp are cooked through, 1-2 minutes. Transfer shrimp and pineapple to a large bowl and season with more salt and pepper.
    5. Drain soaking liquid from onion into the bowl with shrimp and pineapple; set onion aside and toss shrimp and pineapple in the pickling liquid.
    6. Serve shrimp mixture with tortillas, avocado, jalapeno, cilantro, lime wedges, and reserved pickled onion for making tacos.

    ENJOY!!!
