Shrimp Tacos with chipotle sour cream sauce

Raise your hands if you love tacos! Today’s recipe of shrimp tacos with chipotle sour cream sauce is one that I have been wanting to share for a while. Tacos are so much fun because you get to eat them with your hands and it is almost impossible to have a bad taco. Most foodies will tell you that the sauce is what makes the taco which I agree with. For this recipe, I made a chipotle sour cream sauce with Dean’s® DairyPure low-fat sour cream, a little ranch dressing, chives and some chipotle peppers.

As always, I love to use fresh and healthy ingredients whenever I can. For this recipe it was important for me to have good quality ingredients as the meal consists of 80% fresh ingredients like corn, cucumber, tomatoes, shrimp and more. Because I take the sauce very seriously I made sure I used the best sour cream to create a good tasting sauce. DairyPure  makes really good sour cream and the reason I love their products is because of their 5-Point Purity Promise® which means their products have these main 5 benefits:

  1. NO ARTIFICIAL GROWTH HORMONES
  2. ALL MILK IS TESTED FOR ANTIBIOTICS
  3. CONTINUALLY QUALITY-TESTED TO ENSURE PURITY
  4. ONLY FROM COWS FED A HEALTHY DIET
  5. COLD-SHIPPED FROM YOUR TRUSTED DAIRY

For these reasons this sour cream is good for you and I love that it comes in both regular and low-fat option. I used the low fat option but if you want a creamier sauce definitely go with the regular sour cream.Shrimp Tacos with chipotle sour cream sauce

The only thing I regret is that I did not make more. After dinner I noticed my fiancé Marcus was heading over to the kitchen for seconds only to return with a puzzled look on his face because he thought there would be more. I saved the night by boiling some sweetcorn on the cob but next time I will remember to double the servings.

Dean’s DairyPure Sour Cream can be found at most major grocery stores, I got mine at Shaw’s. Remember to look for the tub container in the sour cream section.

Easy Garlic shrimp

Seafood is one of those things that you either love or hate , I am definitely on team seafood. Some health professionals recommend eating 2 portions of seafood each week e.g salmon and shrimp because they are a good source of protein and minerals. As we all know white meat is better that red meat health wise, so if you are not a big fan of seafood you can start with shrimp as it is easy to cook. My darling boyfriend is a seafood lover and there is one dish that he loves ‘Garlic Shrimp’  He has asked me to make it so many times that I could make it with my eyes closed. I decided to share this easy recipe with you and I can assure you it is very tasty too!

Ingredients
1/2 pound shrimp
2 cloves garlic
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 lemon juiced
2 tsp fresh parsley finely chopped
Salt and freshly ground pepper
2 tbsp olive oil

Directions

  •  Mix lemon juice, garlic,  red pepper flakes , 1 tbsp olive oil, shrimp ,salt and pepper in a medium size bowl.
  • Meanwhile heat the rest of the olive oil in a griddle pan.
  • Place shrimp in pan , make sure they are not too close together to prevent them from steaming.
  • Cook for about 3 minutes each side
  •  Once shrimp is cooked on both sides serve immediately . I served mine with mushroom risotto and steamed broccoli. Yummy!
