Campanelle Pasta with Tuna and Tomatoes
So how do you guys feel about some shrimp?
Spicy, saucy Cajun shrimp…..tacos!
Because really tacos make everything just that much better.
Question. Sex and the City, did you guys watch it? Ah forget it, that is a stupid question. I know almost all of you probably watched it religiously and loved every minute of it.
Here is the thing. I have never seen an episode. Well at least a full one, I have seen a scene with Mr. Big where I am pretty sure Carrie was yelling at him. I guess I just never really jumped on the band wagon. I know, the horror. It never really interested me and honestly I do not watch much TV.I was reading one of my many magazines that I subscribe to that seem to pile up and not get read till a month later. Most are foodie magazines, but some of them throw in a little celeb talk. I was reading a story on Anna Sophia Rob and the Carries Dairies (the prequel to Sex and the City). This for some reason intrigued me, like it made me want to hunker down and watch the series from the beginning (I think it started January 15th). Maybe it is because I read that Anna was from Denver or maybe it was that her love interest is Austin Butler. Yeah, that was probably it. I’m pretty much a sucker for any show with drama and some romance (uh, Parenthood anyone).
Maybe if I start with the prequel it will get me pumped for the real Sex and The City. I guess I know what I am doing this weekend.
K, I feel better now.
Back to the Tacos? Cool.
I pretty much made the best shrimp Tacos. They are saucy, spicy and just bursting with flavor and the homemade hard taco shells add a nice crunch!
Oh, and did I mention it’s a quick cooker! Like 25-35 minutes and even shorter if you buy that super fancy (but way too expensive, for me anyway), super convenient already peeled shrimp!

we love anything cajun, these were delicious!
Thanks so much for making this recipe, I am so glad it was enjoyed!! Have the best week:) xTieghan
Thank you so much Beverly! xTieghan
I have always fried corn tortillas in oil or just toast them over an open flame. This technique worked really well and I will use it again for other taco nights. My wife has always liked cajun spiced chicken so when I saw this I knew she would probably love it. She did and so did I. Thanks for the great recipe and on another note I a going to be making you slow cooker french onion soup tonight for tomorrow.
I am so glad you both loved this Mark! Thank you and I hope you enjoy the french onion soup! ?

I love your blog and I just made these tonight – couple of improv’s, because I didn’t have a few things, but they were delicious, regardless.
Thanks Tieghan – for your lovely words, your lovely photos and your lovely cooking. It’s inspiring. You’ve become my go-to blog for cooking ATM…. by the way – I made those double-trouble peanut and reese’s pieces biscuits this week for the Cancer society fundraiser tomorrow….. they will sell out! 🙂 thank you!!
Yum! Thanks for the tip on the taco shells – didn’t know to microwave first, then in oven.
You are so welcome!
Your pictures are GORGEOUS. Your seasoning and style is amazing — BUT, being a true southern girl, a cajun seafood cook, I have to comment that you state “shrimp, pealed and deveined.” Your pictures show the shirmp are NOT deveined. I’ve cooked shrimp for almost 40 years and NEVER once have I served one without being deveined. Your words were proper and your pictures show otherwise. Just saying …. ALWAYS devein your shrimp. FOOD IS LOVE.
seriously…the best looking tacos I’ve ever seen!! you are AMAZING girl
Thank you so much Heather!
I made these a few weeks ago..definitely one of my favorite recipes! So easy and so good.
YEAH! Thanks so much for trying these! I am so happy you loved them!!

I made these tonight and WOW are they good! It was so hard to stop eating these, there is so much flavor! I sprinkled a little fresh cilantro on the tops of my taco along with the avocado and cheese but everything else I did exactly as directed, and my husband and I couldn’t get enough of it!! Thanks for a wonderful dinner, this will be a repeat for sure in my kitchen
YES! I am so glad you guys love these!! Thanks so much for leaving such a nice comment!
