These Spicy Sriracha Tacos are sure to be your new favorite taco recipe! They are easy to make and are loaded with so much flavor.
I love tacos. And I really love shrimp tacos. I love seafood in general, but unfortunately, I don’t get to make it too much at home because my husband is not a seafood fan. He hates pretty much anything to do with seafood. So I don’t really buy much seafood to cook at home because he won’t eat it and then I’ll have to make him something different. And well, that’s just too much work. So when my husband is out of town working or just gone for the day, I make these tacos! And I invite my mother-in-law over to help me devour these superb tacos.
These tacos are so delicious and are hands down the best shrimp tacos that I’ve ever had! They are so flavorful and have a nice little kick. There are a few different components to the recipe, but they all come together very quickly.
The taco breakdown:
Shrimp: You can either use fresh or frozen shrimp. If you are using frozen, just thaw them out first. I always buy the already peeled and deveined shrimp from the store, because I really hate peeling and deveining shrimp. Add some spices, garlic, a squeeze of lime juice, and then sauté them.
Cilantro Lime Slaw: I use a coleslaw/cabbage mix and add some fresh garlic, cilantro, a diced jalapeno, lime juice, sour cream (I use light sour cream – you could also use greek yogurt), salt and pepper. Delish.
Sriracha Sauce: Sirarcha + sour cream = YUM. I use light sour cream – you could also use greek yogurt. It’s a super simple sauce but it is sooooooo good! This gives the tacos a nice kick.
My favorite toppings for these tacos: cojita cheese, chopped cilantro, squeeze of lime juice and guacamole!
And I know the ingredient list looks like a lot – but you are using many of the same ingredients in different parts of the recipe – lime juice, sour cream, salt, pepper, and garlic.

Hope you enjoy these tacos as much as I do!
