This taco is the perfect vehicle for this papaya relish.  I used size 31-40 shrimp here (all that means is that there are about 31-40 shrimp per pound for this particular shrimp size).


  • 1 pound shrimp, cleaned and de-veined
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper or to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • oil for pan frying
  • 100% whole wheat tortillas
  • papaya relish


  1. Pat shrimp completely dry.  Toss with garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne, black pepper, and corn starch.  Let sit for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Heat oil for pan frying.  Fry shrimp in batches until golden and crisp on both sides.  Let drain on paper towels.
  3. Warm tortillas.  Place 4-5 shrimp in center.  Top with some papaya relish and enjoy!
