Number of Servings: 4


    1 tsp. vegetable oil
    1 large onion, sliced into strips
    2 bell peppers, sliced into strips
    3-4 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 jalapeno (remove seeds if you don't like it hot.)
    1 1/2 lb. precooked cocktail shrimp, tails removed
    4 tbsp. honey
    3 tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
    2 tsp. coriander
    2 tsp. cumin
    salt and pepper to taste
    8 tortillas, soft taco size


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 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 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
