Manny’s Easy Shrimp Marinade Recipe

May 24, 2024

We recently started a series called, Manny’s Monday Meals, where we highlight recipes we make all the time at home. Manny loves, loves to cook. His parents are the same way. It’s nothing fancy, but just simple, easy ingredients. Just like this easy shrimp taco recipe!

I think they key in this recipe is getting fresh shrimp if you can! It makes a big difference. If that’s not possibly, making sure the shrimp is completely defrosted.

I also prefer El Milagro flour tortillas with this recipe too!


  • 1-2 lb shrimp, deveined and tail-off and defrosted
  • 2 tbs Olive Oil 
  • 1 lime
  • 1 tbs red pepper flakes
  • 1 tbs garlic powder
  • 1 tbs cumin
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


1. In a large zip lock bag, put in all ingredients
2. Put in shrimp, and mix around so all shrimp is covered with the marinade
3. Let marinate for 1-2 hours
4. Cook on high heat 1-2 minutes per side
5. Top with Pico de gallo and cilantro
