healthy shrimp tacos

I am all about fast, easy and healthy meals during the week, and this recipe for cilantro lime shrimp tacos checks all of those boxes. Try this recipe for your next Taco Tuesday!

Ingredients (serves 2 to 4 people):
• 1 bag of frozen, uncooked, peeled and deveined shrimp
• 1 large container of Greek yogurt (I use FAGE Non-Fat yogurt)
• 1 lime
• Fresh cilantro
• Cayenne pepper
• Whole wheat tortillas
• Salt and pepper for flavor

Start by defrosting the uncooked shrimp, removing the tails and rinsing it clean. Cut the shrimp into small, bite-sized pieces, and add it into a skillet with a splash of olive oil over medium heat. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper for flavor, and cook the shrimp until it turns pink. Be sure to toss the shrimp periodically as it is cooking.

Feel free to add in any other healthy toppings you may like, such as shredded lettuce, tomatoes or avocado.
