Lemony Herb & Garlic Shrimp (tacos)

I dont know how else to say it, this shrimp is SUPER fresh!!

The combination of lemon, garlic, basil, mint and chives is sure to make you feel like its summer. I love to make this whenever I need a quick and easy meal that literally takes under 20 minutes to throw together!

I’ve served this shrimp with steamed asparagus, delicious salads or my favorite way – in tacos! I hope you enjoy 🙂



  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, minced
  •  ½ tsp dried chili flakes
  • 2 lbs raw shrimp, peeled
  •  2 lemons
  • ¼ cup white wine (or water)
  •  1 tsp sea salt
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped fresh basil
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped fresh mint
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped fresh chives
    • 6-8 small gluten free or organic corn tortillas OR lettuce leaves
    • 2 cups shredded cabbage
    • 1 cup finely chopped kale
    • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
    • 2 tbsp avocado oil
    • sea salt
    • 1 tsp honey (optional)


  • In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and chilli flakes and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant
  • Add the shrimp + juice from 1 and 1/2 lemon and sauté for 1 minute
  • Add the white wine or water and cook for another 3-4 minutes until the shrimp turn pink and are cooked through, the liquid remaining will be a delicious sauce!
