Seafood "Alley" Tacos

Ever price a lobster or shrimp taco? Some places charge $8.99 for a two taco shrimp plate or $9.99 for a two taco lobster plate. I made these homemade seafood tacos for less than $.50 per taco. I call them "Alley" tacos because they are cheaper than a street taco!

Ever price a lobster or shrimp taco? Some places charge $8.99 for a two taco shrimp plate or $9.99 for a two taco lobster plate. (A plate comes with rice and beans which are relatively inexpensive.) I made these homemade seafood tacos for less than $.50 per taco. I call them "Alley" tacos because they are cheaper than a street taco!

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 20 street tacos

Ingredients:

  • 20 street size flour tortillas (2 packages) ($2)
  • oil
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • lobster bites ($2 (these were on sale))
  • breaded shrimp ($1.30 (normal price $7.99, on sale for $4.99 less coupon of $1.00 (but I only used l/3 of the package))
  • 1 avocado (.95 ($1.25 less 30 cents coupon))
  • monterey jack cheese (.85 ($1.67 per package, but I used 1 tablespoon per taco))
  • cilantro ($.01 (.50 cents less .40 cent coupon but I only used a few sprigs))
  • cilantro lime dressing ($2.00 ($3.00 per bottle, but I used 1 tablespoon per taco))
  • salad greens ($.25)

GRAND TOTAL FOR 20 STREET TACOS: $9.36 for 20 tacos or the equivalent of a restaurant charge for one seafood taco plate! (less the rice and beans)

Steps:

  1. Bake 1 1/2 cups battered shrimp in oven according to package directions Meanwhile, cook garlic and lobster bites in a small amount of oil, adding salt and pepper to season, on the stove top.
  2. Heat cast iron skillet and fry tortillas in a sprayed oil pan, folding in half.
  3. Prepare toppings: slice the avocado, place cheese in a bowl, place salad greens into a bowl and cut off a few sprigs of cilantro and place in a bowl.
  4. Add seafood to fried tortillas, add toppings, drizzle with cilantro lime dressing (Kraft brand) and serve.
