  • 2 Tbs snipped and finely chopped cilantro

  • 14 oz peeled raw shrimp rinsed and dried
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp minced garlic

  • 2 cups shredded lettuce or chopped cabbage
  • 1 cup tomatoes diced


  1. In small bowl, stir together plain yogurt and cilantro. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. In a medium size bowl, mix shrimp, chili powder, cumin, and garlic. In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add shrimp to pan. Cook for 2 to 4 minutes ONLY until shrimp are pink. Cooking longer will make shrimp too tough and chewy. Remove from heat.
