Feta Shrimp Tacos

A unique combination of taco seasoning and feta cheese works remarkably well in these refreshing tacos. It’s a goodthing you get two per serving, because you won’t want to stop at one! —Athena Russell, Florence, South Carolina

    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Miracle Whip Light or reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon stone-ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped sweet onion
  • 1 banana pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 pound uncooked shrimp (31-40 per pound), peeled and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium taco seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 whole wheat tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Sliced avocado, optional

Directions

  • In a bowl, mix Miracle Whip, vinegar, mustard and pepper. Add cabbage, onion and banana pepper; toss to coat. Refrigerate until serving.
  • Toss shrimp with taco seasoning. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add shrimp; cook and stir 3-4 minutes or until shrimp turn pink. Serve in tortillas; top with slaw, cheese and, if desired, avocado.
Health Tip: Using reduced-sodium taco seasoning instead of regular saves more than 80 mg sodium per serving. Save 125 mg more with salt-free Southwest chipotle seasoning blend or your own salt-free blend.
Editor's Note
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

    This was very yummy. I only had a little shrimp left so I cut it in half. I used regular mayo and it seemed to work out just fine. I used a slaw mix instead of just red cabbage. I used jarred mild banana pepper rings which I chopped up. The taco seasoning I used was regular bulk, and because I know it's not as strong as the taco packets, I used the full amount of taco seasoning (despite cutting it in half). My husband and I really liked it and I'll definitely make this again, the full amount, next time.

    My son loves these so much that he requested them for his birthday! I sometimes like to add a little honey to the taco seasoning to coat the shrimp.

    Red slaw blend added a very unique flavor and texture combination. Am now making it to add to coldcuts sandwiches, adding a touch of horseradish sauce. Used low carb, high fiber tortillas for this recipe.
