Toppers for Shrimp Tacos

Combine any flavorful toppings you have on hand for quick shrimp tacos. Here are some often used toppings for shrimp tacos:

Crema – To prepare the creamy sauce known as a crema for shrimp tacos, use sour cream or even Greek yogurt. Stir with hot sauce or combine with chipotles in adobo sauce for fiery shrimp tacos.

Cabbage slaw – The most basic technique to make slaw for tacos is to toss shredded cabbage with vinegar or lime juice, salt and pepper. In that it’s not usually made with mayonnaise, it’s not coleslaw. Try combining green and red cabbages, or just one.

Fresh lime juice – Because lime juice well balances spicy tastes, it’s a simple way to add flavor to shrimp tacos and other Mexican meals.

Cilantro leaves – For a crisp and vibrant taste, top fish tacos with fresh cilantro leaves. Should you dislike cilantro, use parsley or omit the herbs completely. Cilantro is used in salsas and various shrimp taco sauces in addition to garnishing Mexican food.

Mango salsa – Made with chopped fresh mango, red onion and a jalapeño-like chile, mango salsa gives shrimp tacos a sweet and fiery edge. Though vinegar can also be used, lime juice adds acidity.

Pickled jalapeños – Add spice and acidity, two key components of Mexican cooking, to shrimp tacos by pickling jalapeños in a vinegar solution.

Guacamole – For a quick topping for shrimp tacos, mix together mashed ripe avocados, sliced onion, tomato, lime juice, diced jalapeño, cilantro, and salt & pepper.

Pico de gallo – For even more flavor, pico de gallo—a chunky salsa made with tomatoes, white onions, and chiles—often incorporates cilantro and lime juice. Either chop everything and combine by hand, or make it in a food processor.

What kind of tortilla works best for shrimp tacos?

Maize tortillas are the traditional choice for shrimp tacos and our preferred pick due to their delicious maize aroma, but it’s entirely up to you. If you prefer toasted flour tortillas, you can create an equally excellent taco.
