  • 2 tbsptaco seasoning mix
  • 2 tbspvegetable oil

  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Freshly chopped cilantro, for garnish


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine lime juice, enchilada sauce, taco seasoning, vegetable oil, garlic powder, and pepper. Toss in the shrimp until they are completely coated.
  2. Allow 20 minutes to marinate.
