Cooking With Sensei – Grilled Shrimp Tacos

By June 3, 2019 Diet and Nutrition, TSK
Tiger Schulmann's Sensei Iavarone teaches us how to cook grilled shrimp tacos.

Today on Cooking With Sensei, we are making Grilled Shrimp Tacos with a Yogurt Cabbage Slaw.  Just think about having this yummy refreshing taco on a summer’s day with friends and knowing it is good for you.  Grilling up shrimp happens to be one of my favorite things to cook during the warmer months. Did you know Americans eat one billion pounds of shrimp every year?  Instead of using regular old taco shells, we are using whole-wheat tortillas wraps that we downsized a little to lower the carb intake.

This will be a three part recipe that will come together very quickly. Let’s get to cooking and making so healthy food!

Sensei’s Tip of the Day

Lower your carb intake by cutting off 1/4 inch around the edge of tortillas, using a pizza cutter to get a nice circular line.
