“I found this recipe in the January 2010 Redbook magazine. I have made this recipe before and my family loves it. It has just the right amount of kick and it is very light too. Even my 1 year old daughter enjoys eating these. Hope you enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Salsa: Heat corn in a dry large nonstick skillet over high heat and cook, tossing corn frequently, 4 minutes or until lightly charred in spots. Add tomatoes and onions; cook 2 minutes. Transfer to medium bowl. Stir in cilantro and lime juice. Keep salsa warm.
  2. Tacos: Stack tortillas and warp in damp paper towels. Place in microwave.
  3. Heat oil, garlic, and cumin in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add shrimp, salt, pepper and cook 3 to 4 minutes, tossing several times until shrimp are firm and cooked through; remove from heat and toss with lime juice.
  4. While shrimp cook, steam tortillas in microwave on high 1 to 2 minutes or until softened. Fill each tortilla with 6 or 7 shrimp and top with warm corn salsa and diced avocados.
  5. Note: If you have difficulty finding the can of fire roasted tomatoes, I have substituted that for a can of regular tomatoes and added seeded, diced jalapeños and a small can of chipotle peppers.
