If you have a craving for a healthy taco, a South Florida chef has a recipe for you. Time to grab a Bite with Belkys.
The Chef: Ralph Pagano
The Restaurant: Naked Taco on South Beach
The Dish: Shrimp Tacos
10 medium shrimp
2 oz. Aioli
2 Tbs. toasted coconut
1 Tbs. pickled jalapeños (or to taste)
2 Tbs. micro cilantro (or regular)
2 Tbs. black sesame seeds (toasted)
4 small flour or corn tortillas
2 oz. Sriracha sauce
6 oz. mayonnaise
2 Tbs. lime juice
1 pinch of salt to taste
2 lime wedges
Method of Preparation:
-Start by making the Sriracha Aioli. In a bowl, add mayonnaise, Sriracha sauce, fresh lime juice, & kosher salt. Stir well and set it to the side.
– Dip peeled, deveined shrimp in corn starch to dry them. This will make the shrimp nice and crispy. Next, dip them in Tempura batter.
– Fry the shrimp in soy oil at 350 degrees until they’re golden brown- usually about a minute or less. Drain on a paper towel.
– Put tortillas on the stove top and get them hot about 40 seconds on each side.
– Toss the fried tempura shrimp in the Sriracha Aioli and cover well.
Put the Sriracha Aioli shrimp in the warm tortilla shells. Garnish with toasted coconut, pickled jalapeños, black sesame seeds, micro cilantro and accent with a lime wedge.
