Shrimp Tacos
Serves 4; 2 tacos per serving
Start to Finish: 25 minutes

Tasty seafood tacos are all the rage, and since you can buy peeled and deveined shrimp either fresh or frozen, these are super-easy to prepare.

1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
2 tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon canola or corn oil
13 to 14 ounces peeled raw shrimp, rinsed and patted dry
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
8 6-inch corn tortillas
2 cups shredded lettuce, such as romaine or iceberg
1 small tomato, diced
2 tablespoons sliced black olives

In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream and cilantro. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat, swirling to coat the bottom. Add the shrimp to the pan. Sprinkle the chili powder and cumin on the shrimp. Sprinkle with the garlic. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes if using large shrimp, or 2 to 3 minutes if using small, or until the shrimp are pink on the outside, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat. Using the package directions, warm the tortillas. Put the tortillas on a flat surface. Sprinkle with the lettuce, tomato, and olives. Spoon the sour cream mixture on each. Top with the shrimp. Fold 2 opposite sides of the tortilla toward the center. If you prefer a dramatic presentation instead, place 2 unfolded tacos side by side on a dinner plate. Fold each in half. Push a 6-inch wooden skewer through both tacos near the tops to hold them together. Repeat with the remaining tacos. Your family will be able to remove the skewers easily before eating the tacos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Healthy Eating for All July 15 2016
By Dena C. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this in addition to other AHA cookbooks so that I could expand my selection of healthy meals with less forethought. This is a great book for family cooking. It is divided into sections for quick meals, longer prep meals, cooking once for two meals, cooking with kids, etc. Then most sections are divided by fish/poultry/beef/vegetables. My kids have loved most of the meals I have selected so far. It is also fairly simple to expand the recipes for larger families (we have 6).

I have always been pleased with AHA cookbooks and this is no exception

4.0 out of 5 stars A heart-healthy godsend! Dec 9 2010
By Skylur - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is such a wonderful cookbook! I originally found it at the library, thinking to pick up some cooking tips and a few recipes. Now, after combing through it many times, there's so much in it that I like I have to add it to my cooking library! The oven-baked sweet potato fries is a sure winner--best recipe for it I've ever found. My husband asked me to make more just for him because they vanished so quickly at dinner!

What this book lacks in volume it makes up for it in quality. It may have only 150 recipes, but just about everyone of them is tasty, healthy, a little adventurous, and widely appealing. It is everything I would wish for in every cookbook I pick up. There is more traditional fare that has pared down on fat, there are fusion-type dishes, healthier spins on more newly popular recipes (like the Shrimp Tacos on the cover). The sides section has many easy, quick, and appealing recipes. There are smoothie recipes, some very tasty looking salad recipes that I believe will appeal to salad-creating newbies. On many recipes they suggest sides to serve with the main dishes that are *drum roll please* NOT TIME-CONSUMING!!! Many cookbooks assume you have limitless hours to cook, and after spending time prepping for a main course suggest an additionally time-sucking side dish, which is not great if you have young children, like me. The cook book suggestions are quick, and healthfully round out the meal. Even if it does suggest a side dish in the book, it is usually very quick. The pictures are gorgeous and really got me revved up to make these meals!

The ONLY reason I gave it four stars is for a personal reason: I have to cook around my family's food sensitivities and there are things like fat-free sour cream and plain nonfat yogurt that are used quite often that I can't use. It's possible for me to cook around that, but I wish there were some alternatives or that they didn't use those ingredients quite so often. Even so...I'm still going to try that Chop Chop Salad! Yum!

I've been trying to come up with meals to make during the week that are easy and healthy and I think this book with a little supplementation from another American Heart Association book American Heart Association Around the World Cookbook:: Healthy Recipes with International Flavor has saved my cooking life! I feel in control of my kitchen again. Thank you AHA!
