These shrimp cups that were inspired by this recipe. I baked wontons in a mini muffin pan at 350 degrees. Then I filled them with salad shrimp seasoned with Garlic and Herb Old Bay and cumin, fresh salsa, and shredded cheddar cheese.

I’ve been making chicken tacos a lot during my pregnancy. I’ve definitely made tacos more during this pregnancy than I have in my entire life. I’ve always liked them but never made them often. I COULD have eaten them daily but resisted. 🙂 The plus is that they are really easy to make and a nice, fast meal on a weeknight- even making two batches of meat, chicken for me and ground beef for the boys. Originally, I instated “Taco Tuesdays” but sometimes I couldn’t wait and had them on Mondays, then Sundays. LOL. Anyway, I decided to try something new this week and picked up some shrimp to make shrimp tacos. I’ve never made or had them before but today was a good day to try them for the first time!
There wasn’t much to these. I bought some small shrimp and seasoned them with chili powder, cumin, cilantro, garlic powder, salt and pepper. I sauteed them in a little olive oil and then added a few drops of taco sauce. Top over greens in a soft taco shell and add your favorite toppings. I’m adding sauteed peppers and onions the next time I make these! 🙂
(sorry for the blurry pic- my camera died before I could take more!)
When Scott said he would grill this salmon for me, I was tempted to use a barbeque sauce but decided to try this dry rub instead. I am glad I did. It was so good!! It is a perfect combination of sweet and spicy. I added a little garlic powder to this but didn’t measure it. I didn’t get a good picture of it but the recipe is very blogworthy!
