Kraagen’s Cutie and Lime Shrimp Tacos with Guacamole

Jeff took the reigns on making shrimp tacos for us for lunch today. I kind of want to demand he makes this at least once a week. This weirdo beardo knows how to make a good taco!


For the shrimp:

  • 3/4 pound large shrimp, peeled
  • Juice of a california cutie
  • Juice of a lime
  • Tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon or less? of crushed red pepper
  • Dash of coriander and cumin
  • Salt and pepper
  • Red bell pepper and 1/2 onion sliced thinly


Marinate the shrimp with the juices, oil and spices for about half an hour. Saute the bell pepper and onion in olive oil until soft and browned/charred to your liking. Add the shrimp with a little marinade and saute until just opaque and firm, but don’t overcook.


  • 1 1/2 to 2 avocados
  • Juice of half a lime
  • 2-3 tablespoons finely minced onions
  • 1 whole jalapeno seeded and minced
  • 8-10 cherry tomatoes, diced

Mix it up!

Top corn tortillas with the shrimp/pepper/onion mix and top with guacamole. Serve with grilled asparagus (preferably made on a george foreman..because it’s too cold to grill outside).

  1. I love the idea of using the juice from a cutie for marinade! We have A TON of those lying around the house, and that’s a great idea to make sure I use them up before I get sick of them!
