Food-a-licious Friday {74} Shrimp Scampi Tacos

I just love FRIDAY! Don’t you? 
I’m so excited to introduce you to Dorian today. She is here to share a SUPER yummy recipe with us.
Take it away girlfriend!
Hello Ladies!I am so excited to be posting for Kara at her beautiful blog! Excited and slightly intimidated…I’ve never blogged a recipe before! 
Allow me introduce myself, my name is Dorian and I blog over Busily Spinning Momma where I mostly sew, craft, refashion and create pretty things! Oh, and I have a bunch of tutorials too. I am also a new Fashion author over at the online magazine, Fancy Little Things. There I write about fashion, make-up and hair every Friday in my column, Fashion Me Lovely. I had my first post up last Friday, all about my favorite spring trends! Read it here.
FancyLittleThings launched on the first day of Spring, March 20th in 2011. Our goal was to sow into the lives of others by sharing all that is important to us – our faith, our family, our homes, our passions, our creativeness – and see what sprouted up.
We’ve had wonderful growth over our 1st year, and are excited to enter this Spring season with new authors, new topics and a new look!
Each month, we choose a guiding theme that enliven each of our authors in their topics so that our readers are always getting something fresh, inspired and encouraging!
When my dear friend, (and editor of Fancy Little Things) Aimee asked if I could do a recipe for Kara, I knew exactly which I would do! HOWEVER, it seemed too “winter time comfort food-ish” to me (it was a very delicious roast), so I changed it last minute! So, I will be showing you how to make my Shrimp Scampi Tacos! Perfect for summer and oh-so easy to make!
(please note, I am not a food blogger, so my pictures are subpar, you have my sincere apologies!)

So, you will need:
– 1 red onion
– RAW shrimp
– lettuce (not a lot)
– lime
– tortilla
– olive oil
-garlic (minced)
– fresh parsley
– spicy salsa (optional)
Here’s what  you do:
-Start by  taking your red pepper (halved) and thinly slice it. Go as thin as you can go!
– Put half the sliced red onion in a bowl and squeeze about half a lime over it. Put it aside.
– In a pan ( I prefer non-stick), put about 3 tablespoons olive oil and 2 tablespoons butter. 
-Throw in your minced garlic ( I use about 3 cloves, even more. But I LOVE garlic.)
– Heat entire pan over medium heat. This can take up to ten minutes, but you don’t want the oil or garlic to burn. Stir occasionally.
– Once garlic is a golden color, place the raw shrimps in the pan. Do not crowd the pan, make sure each shrimp can lay one it’s side entirely.
– Sprinkle some chopped parsley. Not a lot, about a teaspoon.
-Once you start seeing some pink creep upward from the cooking side, turn them each other to the other side.
– Sprinkle parsley. 1 teaspoon again.
– Once the shrimp is a pink on both sides, it is done, sprinkle with salt. 
– Take your tortilla and toast on a DRY frying pan, until slightly brown in places.
– place a piece of lettuce on your tortilla
-add cooked shrimp and extra pan juices (not a lot) as well, as some of the good crusty garlic left behind. Yum.
-grab your red onions and place onto of the shrimp.
-Serve and enjoy!
Like it? 

The first time you do it, it will feeling a bit foreign. But once you do it, it becomes seared in you memory and it gets to be so easy to make! Seriously, you guys, instead of “omelet” night (you know, the once in a while easy meal) I do this! My honey loved it, and even my 4 year old sons begs for seconds! Give it a go, I promise you, my pictures don’t do it justice! 
Thank you for having me Kara! I can’t believe I wrote my first recipe post! I’d love it if you visited me over at Busily Spinning Momma and take a look around! Have a great weekend :)
xoxo, Dorian
