Shrimp Wonton Tacos

Makes 12 tacos | Total Cook Time: 20 minutes

Shrimp Wonton Tacos


1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined and cut into thirds

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

3 limes

Avocado oil (or vegetable/canola oil)

12 Wonton wrappers

1 avocado, diced

1 mango, peeled and diced

1 cup chopped arugula

1 cup fat free sour cream

1 teaspoon sriracha

Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Then, marinate your shrimp. Add the shrimp to a bowl and add the chili powder, garlic powder, juice of 1 lime, and a teaspoon of salt and pepper. Mix and put in the fridge.
  3. Next, make your wonton "tacos". Brush the avocado oil (with a pastry brush) on both sides of the wrappers and then gently push the wontons into the muffin tins so it forms a little cup. Bake for about 5-6 minutes, keeping a close eye on them because they burn easily. Once they are browned, take them out and let it cool for about 5 minutes. Then gently remove them from the muffin tins. They'll look like cups. Set aside and cool for another 10 minutes or so.
  4. Then, take out a sauté pan and cook your shrimp for a couple minutes on each side on high heat. Once they are done, remove and set aside.
  5. While the shrimp is cooking, prep your other ingredients. Dice the avocado and mango and add to a bowl. Squeeze the juice and zest of 1 lime (2 limes if the first isn't that juicy), plus a little salt and pepper and mix, then set aside. Taste for seasonings. Then, add the sour cream to a small bowl and add sriracha plus a pinch of salt and pepper and mix. Taste for seasonings.
  6. To assemble, add the shrimp to the wonton taco first. Then add a little avocado & mango mixture, plus arugula, and finish with a dollop of your sour cream mixture. Serve with lime wedges and enjoy!
