Shrimp Tacos with Peach Salsa

Ingredients:

for the shrimp

  • 9 jumbo shrimp (allow 3 shrimp per taco, so adjust this quantity accordingly)
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

for the salsa

  • 2 peaches, chopped
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 red onion, minced
  • 1/2 jalapeño, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • corn tortillas
  • sliced avocado

Instructions:

  1. Chop the peaches and other mix-ins and toss together in a bowl. Toss the shrimp in the seasonings and lime juice and carefully put them on the skewers — you can also use two parallel-aligned skewers to make flipping the shrimp easier if you’d like. Heat the grill to medium heat and grill the shrimp for 3 minutes, turn, and then again on the other side for another 2 minutes. Shrimp can be very easily overcooked, so you’re looking for that just-pink look and they’re done. When you flip the shrimp, also set the tortillas on the grill for those last 2 minutes to warm them up. The slide the shrimp off the skewers (I did three per tortilla) and add a few hearty spoonfuls of salsa and a few slices of refreshing avocado. Done!
