Tracy and I are full of surprises these days! Our men almost couldn’t believe we planned a dude trip just for them and a few friends this upcoming weekend. We actually planned the trip on Mother’s Day and really worked hard to not spoil the surprise before Father’s Day. Don’t be fooled though, we know exactly what we’re doing. Spoiling some of men of Stay Fit Mom before the More Than Macros Retreat next month was no accident. Making these bomb grilled shrimp tacos for dinner yesterday was no accident either.
These grilled shrimp tacos had our daddy coming back for seconds! You really can’t ever go wrong with tacos if we’re being completely honest. They’re super simple to throw together, they’re quick to cook, and everyone can build them the way they like. Onions, cabbage, tomatoes, cilantro, avocado, sour cream, and feta to name a few toppings.

Don’t forget to grab some bamboo skewers when you’re grocery shopping or order on Amazon today here. If you forget you may have a real hard time grilling these without losing a few to the fire.
You’ll need 2 pounds of raw, jumbo shrimp to make these. If frozen, defrost them under cool water before peeling and putting them on the skewers. Once skewered, generously coat them with ALL the seasoning.
I cooked these on the Traeger Grill at 225 for about 20 minutes until pink in color. If using a traditional grill, cook on both sides about 3-4 minutes, or until they look pink. Don’t over cook, you’ll be stuck with dry, rubbery shrimp.
I should also mention that I put all the ingredients for the taco sauce right into a ziplock bag and mixed it up. When it comes time to put it on your tacos, just snip the corner of the bag with some scissors and drizzle.
