The Royal Haciendas Shrimp Tacos
Quantities given are per person
3 jumbo shrimp
1/4 tsp of salt and pepper
1 oz. lime juice
4.1 oz. tempura batter
3 flour tortillas
2 oz. shredded lettuce
2 oz. pico de gallo salsa (chopped tomato, onion, coriander with a dash of serrano chili)
1 1/2 oz. chipotle chili flavored mayonnaise
1 1/2 oz. yellow mayonnaise
To garnish: 1 sangria lettuce leaf, 1 1/2 oz. avocado and 1 slice of lime
Slice the shrimp in half lengthwise and marinate in the lime juice, salt and pepper for a few minutes. Then dip the marinated shrimp in tempura batter until thoroughly coated and fry in oil until golden. Drain on kitchen paper and serve on warm tortillas (two shrimp halves per tortilla). Top with the chipotle mayonnaise, shredded lettuce, pico de gallo salsa, sliced avocado, and drizzle with the yellow mayonnaise. Serve with the lettuce, avocado and lime garnish.
Note: Corn tortillas can be substituted for the flour variety and both fish and shrimp tacos are excellent with a dash of habanero chili salsa if you like a dash of the hot stuff.
Stay posted for additional recipes in the months to come. We hope that you enjoy preparing these recipes for your family and friends and that they bring back many happy memories. Remember, however, that for the true flavor to come out you have to add sunny skies, turquoise water and a dash of Mexican hospitality.
