Servings 4 people


  • 400 g shrimp
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil (flavoured)
  • 1 lime
  • salt to taste (optional)


  1. Warm up 2 tbsp of coconut oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat and add the shrimps. If using frozen shrimps, make sure to thaw them beforehand. Cooking from frozen will release a lot of water. Sauté on medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes.

  2. Juice the lime and add the juice to the shrimps. Add salt if needed - sometimes shrimps are quite flavourful without adding any salt. Cook until the lime juice has evaporated, 2-3 more minutes. 

  3. Remove from heat and stir in 1 tbsp of coconut oil. Using flavoured coconut oil, this last addition is mostly for the taste. Use immediately a filling for tacos.
