How to Do

Delicious tikka marinated shrimp tacos, topped with a cool raita dip. A mouthwatering combo of spicy and cool. One of our favorite Indian inspired tacos!

Utensils: mixing bowl, skewers, grill (grill pan, skillet)

Suggested Pairing: top it with our raita dip!





Chop the vegetable in bite-size chunks.


STEP 2:  

To make the marinade mix all the ingredients together, pour over the vegetables and shrimp, mix gently to coat evenly and cover the bowl.  Allow to marinade in the fridge for a minimum 4 hours or overnight to get the best flavour.


STEP 3: 

Thread onto skewers.



Grill on a preheated electric grill (skillet on the stovetop, outdoor grill, grill pan, broiler, or oven’s grill would also work without compromising the flavour) for 2-3 minutes on each side for the shrimp and 4-5 minutes on each side for the vegetable skewers.


STEP 5: 

In the meantime make the raita dressing by mixing the yogurt with the onion, the mint, the ground chilli, cumin, coriander a little bit of sugar and salt to taste. Add the grated cucumber and mix well.



Fill the tortillas with the cooked shrimp and vegetables, drizzle with raita dressing. Serve warm.
