Note:  This was one of those meals that I started and then it evolved while I was cooking.  My original idea was Shrimp with Sauteed Veggies, but at some point the idea of yummy and refreshing Tacos took over.  The result is Indian spiced Shrimp done Mexican style; and it was amazingly delicious!  


Indian Spice Mix Recipe:
This was taken directly from Alamelu's Spice Rubbed Seared Fish Recipe:  www.mptv.org/localshows/alamelu/latest_episode/?v=JN9qMI_w8EI&e=201
Click on the "More Info" tab below the video to get her exact recipe.


I mixed the following together:
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Cayenne
1 tsp Ginger
1 tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Garam Masala
1/2 tsp Salt
2 cloves of Garlic, minced
1 tbsp Lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
2 tbsp EVOO

And then marinated the thawed Shrimp in the spice mix for about 30 minutes.  I broiled the marinated Shrimp for 3 minutes, turned them and did another 5 minutes in the broiler until they were browned and sizzling!  They went right into the warm Corn Tortillas and topped with the cool creamy refreshing fillings.  This was a perfect blend of spicy and creamy and fresh - totally delicious!



Dessert:  1 cup of Red Grapes.
