Shrimp Taco Salad Recipe

Share This Recipe:

A healthy, shrimp taco salad recipe with a spicy twist. The shrimp are seared in a tasty blend of taco seasoning, then served over a bed of fresh greens and chopped tomatoes. I usually serve this taco shrimp salad with a side of cheese and some tortilla chips.

It's easy to make this salad a bit spicier if you want by increasing the amount of chili powder and cayenne pepper you use when searing the shrimp. Some extra spice on the shrimp will give this salad loads of flavor without the need for much dressing. It's a great way to cut down on calories if your diet calls for it (although this recipe is VERY healthy to begin with). Finally, serve with a slice of fresh lemon to bring all the flavor together! Enjoy!
