Let's face it, even if my goal is to cook every meal from scratch, life happens.  That is why I am always preaching to y'all about keeping a well stock freezer and pantry with quality ingredients.  This way when busy days occur you can still put a fun, delicious, and flavorful meal on the table!  Take my Spicy Thai Shrimp Tacos using SeaPak® Party-Sized Popcorn Shrimp.  

Easily found in the freezer section of your local WalmartSeaPak® offers high quality, coastal tasting seafood that can be on your table in minutes.   Never tried it?  Here's a coupon!  Check it out, I know you will love it!

Now let me share with you how I make these Spicy Thai Shrimp Tacos!

Spicy Thai Shrimp Tacos:
*Prep Time: 10 minutes  *Cook Time: 10 minutes *Difficulty: Easy  *Servings: 4 Tacos

  • 12 pieces of SeaPak® Popcorn Shrimp
  • 8 Wonton Wrappers
  • 8 Leaves of Napa Cabbage
  • 1/4 c. Julienned Carrots
  • 1/2 c. Mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp. Low Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 1 tsp. Teriyaki Sauce 
  • 1 tsp. Hoisin Sauce
  • 1 tsp. Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. Toasted Sesame oil
  • 1 inch piece of Fresh Ginger, grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Sriracha Sauce, Fresh Cilantro, and Sesame Seeds, for garnish
For these tacos we are going to make an Asian style slaw. 

To begin you will rinse the Napa cabbage leaves, stack them on top of one another, cut off the stem, and roll them up.

Now cut the stacked and rolled cabbage into ribbons, and then...

Cut into a small dice.

In a mixing bowl add the mayonnaise,

Rice wine vinegar,

Soy sauce,

Teriyaki sauce,

Hoisin sauce,

Sesame oil,

And grated ginger.

Whisk the slaw sauce together until smooth.

Now add the carrots and...

Chopped Napa cabbage.

Toss until everything is evenly coated and place into the refrigerator while you finish all of the other elements.

On a greased, foil lined baking dish, place the SeaPak® popcorn shrimp.

I also grabbed the SeaPak® Shrimp Egg Rolls.  I thought it would be a fun addition to the dish.

Cook according to the instructions on the box.

Now lets talk about the "taco shells".  In staying with the Asian them of this dish, I thought it would be super fun to use wonton wrappers!  To get them nice and crispy, take two wrappers (this will be a double layer) and drape over the side of a greased baking dish.  Give them a little spritz of cooking spray and bake in the oven for 5-7 minutes until golden brown!

How cool is that!
As I said before you will want to use TWO WRAPPERS PER TACO.
If you don't the shells will be too brittle.

Now let's assemble!
Place approximately three shrimp per taco.

Add the slaw.

Then top with cilantro, lime juice, sesame seeds, and sriracha!  PERFECTION!!!  I served these Spicy Thai Shrimp Tacos with my Cilantro Lime Rice and the SeaPak® Shrimp Egg Rolls.  It was a HUGE hit!  So see, when you keep quality ingredients in your freezer such as SeaPak® Popcorn Shrimp, you can have a fantastic Dinner, full of fun, fresh ingredients, on the table in UNDER 30 minutes!  If you love this recipe I would like to hear your feedbacks in the comments as well as ideas you have for using SeaPak® brands at Walmart to #ShrimpItUp!

And as always...

Happy Reading, Happy Eating, and Happy Living,
