Directions

Warm oil in skillet over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, bell peppers, and jalapeno. Cook until onions are transparent, about 5-10 minutes. Add shrimp and cook only until warmed through. (The longer they cook, the more they lose water and shrink.)

If you see a lot of water at the bottom of the pan after cooking the shrimp, drain mixture in a colander, return to skillet and stove. Lower the temperature of the stovetop to low. Add cumin and coriander, salt and pepper to taste.

In a small bowl, combine honey and chopped cilantro. Place shrimp mixture in tortilla and top with a spoonful of the honey mixture. You can top with salsa or sour cream if you wish. Enjoy!

*Note: these tacos can be pretty messy, so you may prefer to eat them with a fork and knife

    We really enjoyed these. I used one large flatout multi grain with flax flatbread (100 calories) for each of us. It really cut down of the calories. 345 total for each of us. - 12/24/09

    Very good, but messy. I'm going to make these for a 3rd time this week as a salad instead of tacos. - 2/28/10

    I cooked this for my family of 6. Everone loved it. I added the honey to the shrimp mixture and it made it soft and yummy and evenly coated among the mixture. - 6/24/10

    I forgot the garlic but I stil loved it. The kids were afraid of the honey/cilantro sauce. Thought it looked gross. I don't care how it looks; it tastes great. Will make it again. - 1/27/09

    I actually doubled the honey sauce when I made this (my husband to drench things in sauce). Was totally unneeded. We barely used half, and even then it felt like it was a bit much. The honey sauce goes a long way. It was great though, we really liked it! - 3/19/08

  • These were surprisingly good! I ignored the coriander, added some lime juice, and mixed it all together in the skillet (instead of using the honey/cilantro as a separate sauce.) The hubby was highly impressed :D - 4/11/13

    I have never written a review about a recipe I have found online and have made. But this recipe got me to create a account just to inform you on how bad this recipe is, this has got to be the worst thing I have ever made. For all those rating this 5 star, what have you been eating? this is AWFUL. - 6/4/11

  • Loved this. Was not a big fan of the honey cilantro sauce, but the rest was so good!! Thank you! - 4/21/11

  • Delicious. I used Mission Carb Balance Whole Wheat Tortillas (taco size) instead of regular white tortillas. You get more fiber and less calories. - 3/23/11

  • Generally liked it, but may skip the honey sauce next time and just stick to some salsa instead. Question - calls for 8 tortillas but makes 4 servings, so is one serving 2 tacos?? - 3/9/11

  • This was AMAZING!! A great contrast between spicy and sweet. I did only use 1/4 of the jalapeno pepper because I was nervous and it was still had a kick. I also only used about 1/2 the honey and just added it right on top of the veggies and shrimp and threw in the cilantro too. So YUMMY!! - 2/22/11

  • Very tasty! I used corn tortillas instead of flour which knocked about 100 calories off of the total. This would be really good on top of mixed greens for even fewer calories. YUM! - 7/2/10

  • Really good. I used crawfish since that's what I had on hand and used red bell peppers instead of green. Next time will half the honey sauce and add lime juice to cut sweetness - a bit TOO sweet for me. And will DEFINITELY eat over rice - tacos were very very messy!!! But yummy! - 5/20/10

  • my 12 year old daughter made this. It was easy and had a real interested flavor. I would give the tortilla the heave ho and add this on top of a salad or brown rice as better alternative. - 4/12/10

  • I wasn't sure about the honey/cilantro mixture on the shrimp/veggies...but it was WONDERFUL! My husband and I both learned we don't like coriander, though. Next time will leave that out. - 1/27/10
