Spicy Shrimp Tacos with Avocado Salsa (Gluten-Free)

These tacos come together so wonderfully in part because of the vibrant, contrasting colors of the salsa and shrimp. The jalapeños and chili powder transform otherwise simple shrimp tacos.

You can easily control the heat by removing the seeds from the peppers or omitting a pepper, and reducing the amount of chili powder. I tend towards the spicier side, but the shrimp is equally intriguing with a sweet peppadew salsa.

Ingredients:

For Salsa:
1 avocado, cut into chunks
4 tomatillos, husked and roughly chopped
1 small red onion, roughly chopped
2 small jalapeños, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon salt
⅓ cup cilantro leaves

For Tacos:
1 pound medium shrimp
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
8 corn tortillas
Cilantro and limes for garnish

Directions:
Combine the onion, jalapeño, and garlic in a food processor or blender until finely chopped. Add tomatillos, avocado, cilantro, and salt and pulse 4-5 times. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

Mix olive oil, chili powder, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add shrimp and toss until evenly coated. Add half shrimp to a large, heated pan. Cook about 2 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining shrimp.

For crispier tortillas, grill directly over stovetop until lightly charred or wrap in a damp towel and microwave for about 30 seconds. Keep tortillas covered until ready to serve.

Spoon salsa onto each tortilla and top with 3-4 shrimp and cilantro. Serve 1 lime wedge for each two tacos.

In the beginning, you might find ANY gluten free bread abhorrent. So, you might wait a few months to give yourself time to forget what wheat bread tasted like.

In my brief research, I did not find any public papers indicating villi blunting for Losartan specifically. There was research and a law suit on olmesartan (other celiac.com members have pointed out). Dr. Hart may have been making clinical observations or has access to medical research that is...

I did find a local store that carries the Canyon House brand and will give that a try. It can be tough as I live in a fairly rural area and we don't have a lot of the resources many of the more urban areas do.

Hello, Often drugs that end in ?artan are ARBs, and they work by blocking the angiotensin receptors. I?m not sure what the exact difference is between the two medications you mention, though. Have you called the manufacturer of losartan to see if any of the fillers contain gluten? It might b...
