Paleo Shrimp Tacos with Pineapple Salsa

Happy Cinco De Mayo!

This is the first video from our recent shoot and, although I was sick, these "breakfast tacos" turned out super scrumptious. I'd like to thank Kelley Jackson, one of our Ice Age Meals athletes, for flying in from St. Louis to cook with me and spend some time with the Ice Age crew!

It was a lot of fun getting someone else on camera and Kelley did a stand up job. I look forward to watching her compete at Regionals and believe that she'll move on the The Games this August in Madison, Wisconsin.

As for the tacos, they couldn't get much easier. Shrimp cooks so quickly that you barely have time to whip up a salsa. Working as the Ga Ga Garlic tag team, we were able to knock this out in under 10 minutes. I hope that you'll give it a try and I hope even more that you'll stay tuned and help spread the word about this series.

Wes Piatt is up next and there are more shrimp involved. So, don't touch that dial and don't forget to...

Ingredient for the pineapple salsa:

  • 1/4 fresh pineapple, small dice
  • 1 1/2 Roma tomatoes, quartered and fleshed, small dice
  • 1 serrano pepper, bias cut (remove seeds for less heat)

  2. Place shrimp onto a plate lined with a paper towel and sprinkle the top side with PALEO GRIND Ga Ga Garlic. Place them seasoned side down into the hot skillet and season the top side once again with Ga Ga Garlic. Cook on the first side for 2-3 minutes and then flip and cook another 2-3 minutes. Add a small amount of water to the pan, stir and cut the heat.
  3. Place pineapple, red onion, Roma tomatoes, cilantro, serrano pepper, lime juice and a pinch of kosher salt into a medium sized mising bowl. Stir to incorporate.
