Marinade (Makes more than what's needed for this recipe)

  • 2 jalapeno peppers 1 tablespoons seeded and minced
  • 1/4 cup raspberry preserves or jam
  • Juice and zest of 1 orange
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • Juice and zest of 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • 4 to 6 wooden skewers if grilling
  • 24 large shrimp peeled and deveined
  • Fresh spinach
  • 2 Roma tomatoes seeded and diced
  • 1 jalapeno seeded and minced
  • 2 tbsp diced onion
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • Shredded cheese Mexican or cheddar
  • 8 to tortilla shells
  • Avocado optional garnish


  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice


  • Mix marinade ingredients together. In a separate bowl or zip-close bag, pour enough marinade to just cover cleaned shrimp. Refrigerate and allow shrimp to marinate for at least 30 minutes. Store remaining marinade covered in the refrigerator.
  • While shrimp marinates, soak wooden skewers if grilling.
  • In a small bowl, make pico by combining diced tomato, onion, jalapeno, lime juice, and fresh cilantro and salt. Set aside.
  • In a small container, combine Greek yogurt and lime juice. Refrigerate.
  • Once shrimp have marinated, thread onto skewers and grill. Place on pre-heated grill and cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Shrimp can also be sauteed in a skillet or baked.
  • Assemble tacos by adding spinach, shrimp, pico, cheese, and sauce. We also like additional cilantro and fresh avocado on our tacos.
