By Alejandra Ramos of AlwaysOrderDessert.com


  • 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled, cleaned, tails off
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon smoked Spanish paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

Cilantro Salsa

  • 1 bunch cilantro, cleaned and ends trimmed off, finely minced
  • ½ white onion, finely minced
  • 1 large lime, juiced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • kosher salt and black pepper


  • Soft corn tortillas, slightly warmed
  • Plain Greek yogurt and limes for serving


  1. In a large bowl, combine the shrimp, olive oil, paprika, black pepper, cumin, and salt. Toss to combine and let marinate 5 minutes.
  2. In a separate bowl, toss together the cilantro, white onion, lime juice, and olive oil. Season to taste with salt and black pepper, and set aside
  3. Preheat a grill pan or iron skillet and cook the shrimp about 2 minutes per side or until cooked and slightly charred. This can also be done on an outdoor grill by skewering the shrimp.
