Grilled Shrimp Tacos with Pickled Onions

These grilled shrimp tacos with pickled onions are fresh, flavorful and incredibly easy to make! Grab your tongs and your favorite apron, it’s time to light the grill!

Here at Sizzlefish, our Colossal Gulf Shrimp are wild caught in the Gulf of California. These juicy, succulent shrimp are perfect for grilling and are a show stopper in tacos. Their large size and tender meat make them ideal for grilling and well, we can all agree that shrimp tacos are a win no matter how you look at it. Taco night is always a fun night around here and it has become a weekly event we never miss.

Grilled Shrimp Tacos with Pickled Onions

Since everyone loves tacos and they are fun to make family style, it’s a great way to make sure we all sit together for some quality family time. We do like to change things up from time to time and this recipe is one of those times. Fish tacos are fun to create since they are so much more versatile than your average beef or chicken varieties, meaning the topping choices are really endless. The smokey heat from the seasonings, along with that amazing flavor you get from the grill really shine in this recipe. We decided we wanted a fun condiment to go with this dish so we made quick pickled red onions. They were exactly what this recipe needed! The crisp tangy pickled onions with those juicy jumbo smokey shrimp nestled in a fresh tortilla, ok, now our mouths are watering for more!
