"Which is better: Landfood or Seafood?"
Comparing seafood and "landfood" is like asking someone if they like watching the Discovery Channel or Netflix. They're just not on the same scale! How can you possibly choose? While I enjoy seafood and all of the different options that the ocean has to offer; so called "Landfood" is a variable smorgasbord. There's fruits and vegetables, meats and cheeses, desserts and so much more!
I do admit that I chose "Landfood" over seafood, but let me make it clear that I still love seafood with all my heart! Fish, shrimp, crab, even squid and octopus; I like it all! It is so light and fresh and lends itself to all kinds of flavor combinations. I love a good fried catfish dinner or a crab boil with all the fixings. You can make it Italian, French, Mexican, Chinese! Seafood can be found everywhere! Even in a landlocked state like Indiana! (I do admit that seafood is best on a coast, but sometimes you have to deal with less than ideal circumstances)
I made these Shrimp Tacos earlier this summer and they really hit to spot. The fresh flavors of the shrimp and the Homemade Grilled Pineapple Salsa were wonderful and the spiciness of the Cajun seasoning balanced the dish nicely and complimented the smokiness of the grilled crustacean. Even if you don't have a grill I recommend trying this dish! A simple pan seared shrimp would work just as well and be delicious.
Small Flour Tortillas, slightly heated through to make them more pliable
1 package of shrimp, shelled and deveined
The juice of one Lime
Lettuce, Finely Chopped
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Homemade Grilled Pineapple Salsa
Preheat your grill. (or a sauté pan with a small amount of oil if you are not using a grill)
Layout out the shrimp in a single layer on a tray.
Cover the shrimp in the Cajun seasoning on both sides
Cook the shrimp for about 6 minutes; flipping over half way through.
Once the shrimp are nicely browned and pink in the middle remove them from the heat and let them sit for a minute.
Squeeze the lime juice over top of the shrimp
To build your tacos, start with a tortilla and begin with several shrimp.
Top with lettuce, cheese and your Grilled Pineapple Salsa.
