We don’t get paid until Saturday so I have to be a little creative as to how I am going to make dinner. Mike and I usually fend for ourselves when it comes to lunch and breakfast, so I really only have to worry about one meal a day. Thankfully, last night I was able to run up to Chick-Fil-A for some dinner, which makes it easier on me! No dishes! Yay!
On Sunday I missed out on my mother in laws cooking (that I was totally depending on!) due to the fact that we slept through dinner, so I had to check out what was in the fridge and freezer and noticed a frozen bag of shrimp and some corn tortillas.
I came up with these little beauties. I sautéed some shrimp in a skillet with a little bit of garlic olive oil and added a dash of garlic salt to give flavor. The best part of shrimp is that it holds flavor really well (just like mushrooms). I warmed up some corn tortillas, added some shrimp sauce, and put some cole slaw mix as a topping. So easy and so good.
Now here’s the best part. I was able to make a really good sauce made with random ingredients from the fridge. I originally was going to try salsa, but we were out of it, so this is what I came up with:
Easy Shrimp Taco Sauce
3/4 cup of mayonnaise or miracle whip
1/2 cup of relish
2 tbsp of taco seasoning mix
1 tbsp of lime juice
2 tbsp of hot sauce
I wanted to add the hot sauce for a little kick and wish I added a little more, but it was good stuff!
