Rosemary Citrus Shrimp Tacos

Flour tortillas topped with the crunch of fresh vegetables as well as sauteed shrimp.  These Rosemary Citrus Shrimp Tacos are not only the most flavorful tacos you’ve ever made, but the only ones that you’ve taken just 15 minutes to prepare.

I debated about what to call these tacos.  15 Minute Tacos?  Easiest Shrimp Tacos Ever Tacos?  So Easy You’ll Want to Have Them Every Night Tacos?  All absolutely true, but the names were rather lengthy so I simply went with Rosemary Citrus Shrimp Tacos.

This is one of those recipes – and really, recipe is a really loose term here – that will take you longer to prep the vegetables than to actually cook the shrimp.  If you can use a knife to cut peppers into strips and avocados into slices, you’ve pretty much got this main course mastered!

I love the juxtaposition of fresh, crunch vegetables paired with the sauteed shrimp.  The rosemary and citrus flavors from the sauce?  A knockout combination.  I loved it so much I even added more sauce to the top of my tacos along with a squeeze of the tangelo that I was using as a garnish.

Fresh citrus and seafood while the snow is still swirling outside my window at the end of March?  I’ll admit, it was most definitely the bright spot of my day.  So much so that it will be on my menu again.  And soon.

  16. I grew up picking raspberries at Rothschild’s! They used to have a store right there, and restaurant, where you could buy all their sauces, salsas, jams, etc. But they closed it and I guess are just distributing to big stores now.
    Your tacos look delicious! Saw you over on Time to Sparkle.

      Thanks so much, Jill! I’ve yet to have a product from RRF that I haven’t loved. So many delicious products! If you haven’t tried their Chili Lime Sauce, you must!

  17. yum! These look delicious

  18. Great your site.

    When i view your article and view your site have good.

    I like your site.

    I have feel good in your content the best.

    thanks for this nice information.

  19. I was curious, is there another type of rosemary citrus pepper sauce that I can find at a more local store like Walmart or Kroger’s?

    • Hey, Kris – I’d definitely try calling RRF if you’re looking for a local retailer. Many grocery stores also carry their products. You are also able to order online as well. I could fill your grocery cart in no time with their amazing products!

      • Michelle Korshunov says:

        do they sell this sauce at stores like walmart or target?

        • To my knowledge RRF aren’t sold in big box stores, but they are in some local groceries. Your best bet would be to contact them directly through their site or to order from their site directly. I’ve yet to try one of their products I haven’t loved!

          • Tricia says:

            If you click on the highlighted product and enter your zip code, it will list the stores in your area that carry these products.

      • Michelle Korshunov says:

        also what do you mean by cole slaw mix? like regular cole slaw?

        • Hi, Michelle – Cole slaw mix is what you’ll find in the refrigerated section at your grocery. Usually in a bag with the shredded lettuce, salad mixes, etc. Hope that helps!

  20. Tricia says:

    Melanie, do you use the coleslaw mix straight from the bag or do you add mayo, etc. like you would for making coleslaw?

    • melanie says:

      Hi, Tricia – I use it straight from the bag, no need to mix anything you’re simply using it for the crunch factor!
