When it's hot out, I love anything and everything with cilantro and/or lime – especially dishes that require very little effort! This recipe is super easy, and makes great leftovers, too. Perfect for a gorgeous summer meal.


1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup olive oil
1 handful cilantro, chopped
zest of one lime
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pinch coarse salt
1 pinch freshly ground black pepper
2 pounds raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup water
1 cup white (or basmati or jasmine) rice
1 jar store-bought salsa
1 package medium white flour tortillas
2 cups shredded cheese (I prefer Mexican blend)
1 jalepeno, halved, and seeds removed from ONE half
1 small sweet onion
juice of 2 limes
3-4 cloves of garlic
1 handful cilantro, chopped
2 pinches coarse salt
2 pinches freshly ground black pepper
1 drizzle of olive oil
3 avocados


Step 1
Combine the coconut milk and water in a medium saucepan; add the rice and cook according to package directions

Step 2
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees

Step 3
Spread the peeled and deveined raw shrimp in one layer in a glass baking dish

Step 4
Whisk together the first 8 ingredients of the Sweet Cilantro-Lime Shrimp recipe. Pour the mixture over the shrimp. The shrimp can be marinated up to an hour before cooking.

Step 5
Cook the marinated shrimp for 10-12 minutes - keep an eye on it, because shrimp cook very quickly! The shrimp will become pink and opaque throughout when done.

Step 6
While the shrimp is baking, combine the first 8 ingredients of the Super Spicy Guacamole in a food processor until all of the ingredients are thoroughly combined and resemble the texture of pickle relish (a blender works just as well)

Step 7
Halve the avocados, remove the pits, and spoon the flesh of the avocados into the food processor. Pulse until combined, but the avocado is still chunky (if you are using a blender, I recommend dicing the avocado by hand and stirring it into the jalepeno-onion mixture)

Step 8
When the shrimp is fully cooked, melt the shredded cheese onto the tacos either in the oven or the microwave. Serve each taco with the Coconut Rice, Sweet Cilantro-Lime Shrimp, salsa, and the Super Spicy Guacamole. Enjoy!
