National Taco Day


Celebrate National Taco Day!

  • “Last year Americans ate over 4.5 billion tacos!”
  • “That’s 490,000 miles of tacos, which could take you to the moon and back or, if you prefer, could, at 775-million pounds, equal the weight of two Empire State Buildings.”

How about some fresh seafood tacos? Here’s my favorite recipe. 

Shrimp Tacos with Cabbage


  • 1 pound medium-sized Florida shrimp, peeled
  • 8 corn or flour tortillas
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 cups Florida cabbage, shredded
  • 2 Florida tomatoes, diced
  • 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce (your favorite)
  • 1 fresh lime, juiced
  • vegetable oil (cooking)
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon dried cumin
  • sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste


  1. Wrap tortillas in foil and warm in 300-degree oven.
  2. Preheat a medium-sized sauté pan over medium-high heat.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, combine the yogurt, lime juice, cumin and hot sauce.
  4. Stir ingredients to combine.
  5. Taste, adjusting seasoning with salt and pepper.
  6. Set aside the yogurt sauce for later.
  7. Lightly season the shrimp with salt and pepper.
  8. Add 1 tablespoon of oil to the preheated sauté pan.
  9. Carefully add the seasoned shrimp to the sauté pan.
  10. Cook for 2 to 4 minutes or until completely done throughout.
  11. Assemble tacos by starting with a tortilla, then layer cabbage, cilantro and tomatoes.
  12. Place an even portion of shrimp on top of the vegetables.
  13. Spoon some of the yogurt sauce on top of the shrimp.
