Honey Lime Southwest Shrimp Tacos


I love tacos! Fish, chicken, beef! I love it all. What better than to have a Taco Tuesday party right here at Bloom & Bliss. Love the idea? So do I!

 On today’s menu we have (drum roll)… 

Honey Lime Southwest Shrimp Tacos

 Andrew and I both love shrimp and are always trying to come up with new ways to incorporate it into our entrees.

I heated up the shrimp

I was craving tacos one night so I thought “why not some shrimp tacos”. I searched the internet high and low for a good shrimp taco recipe but couldn’t find one that I was set on. I liked different elements from multiple recipes, so I decided to combine parts I liked into one recipe.

Seasoned it with my ingredients.


  1. Honey
  2. Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle Seasoning
  3. Salt and Pepper
  4. Lime Juice
  5. Garlic

(Recipe at the end of this post)

The room filled with the aroma of all these ingredients combined and I wanted to devour the shrimp right then and there but I still had the Chipotle Lime Crema to make still and warm the tortillas. So I resisted might have only eaten 1 little shrimp, you know, just to make sure it tasted ok. 😉

Moving on to the Chipotle Lime Crema…

cream topping
I used lime juice, Mrs. Dash, and some sour cream and made this delish crema for the topping.

I chopped up some cilantro and avocado for more taco toppings. I only used half an avocado because Andrew doesn’t like avocados! Say what!!!?? I know, craziest thing I ever heard. So I only made enough for myself. 

Mmm Avocado!



I quickly warmed the tortillas and we made our plates. Let me tell you they were A-MAZING

Andrews plate minus the avocado (crazy man)

I loaded the avocado on these bad boys.

Top with your crema and then it’s time to enjoy some delicious tacos and a beautiful Tuesday night. 🙂

    Your recipe seems really delish! Like Andrew, I’m not not big on avocados, but I would be willing to try it in this recipe. Too bad my hubby is allergic to shrimp. 🙁

      Oh no!!!! That would so aweful if I couldn’t have shellfish. Andrew loved them. Maybe cook up some tilapia or cod on the side for your hubby. 🙂
