Easy Shrimp Tacos with a delicious spicy slaw! This is one of those super simple healthy recipes that comes together in just 15 minutes!

  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: Makes about 8 tacos 1x



Shrimp tacos:

  • 1 lb wild shrimp, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon each paprika, chili powder, cumin
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • Tortillas of choice
  • Guacamole

Spicy slaw:

  • 12 ounce bag of slaw (I used the organic broccoli slaw from Trader Joe’s)
  • 2/3 cup + 1 tablespoon full-fat greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 small jalapeño, seeds removed, chopped


  1. First make the slaw by mixing together the ingredients in a large bowl
  2. Add slaw to fridge so everything really marinates together (I also prep this the night before sometimes if I know I am making it)
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  4. Add the shrimp to a large bowl and mix in the oil and spices to evenly coat each piece
  5. Allow the shrimp to marinate for a few (again you can do this night before if you want)
  6. Cook the shrimp in the oven for about 6-8 minutes
  7. Warm tortillas as you’d like an assemble tacos with by adding shrimp, slaw and guacamole to tortilla. Garnish with cilantro if desired.


*You can also cook these on grill or stovetop if you prefer!
