Broiled Shrimp Tacos

Shrimp can be purchased already peeled and deveined, if you prefer not to do it yourself. Frozen shrimp are also a good option; thaw them in the bag in a bowl of water. Broilers vary in heat intensity; adjust the rack as necessary to cook the shrimp through.

  • 12 6-inch corn tortillas
  • 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 medium white onion, chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 2 teaspoons safflower oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced canned chipotles in adobo
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • Assorted garnishes, such as sliced avocado, shredded red cabbage, cilantro sprigs, sour cream, lime wedges, and sliced jalapenos


  1. Preheat broiler with rack 6 inches from heating element. Arrange tortillas in overlapping rows on a baking sheet. Broil until blistered in spots, about 1 minute. Flip and broil about 30 seconds more. Remove from broiler; immediately stack tortillas and wrap in a clean kitchen towel to soften and keep warm until ready to serve.

  2. Toss shrimp with 1 cup onion, oil, chipotles, and salt. Transfer to a baking dish and broil, stirring a few times, until shrimp are pink and opaque, 6 to 8 minutes. Divide shrimp and remaining onion evenly among tortillas. Serve with assorted garnishes.
