Sheet-Pan Shrimp and Pineapple Tacos

Not into shrimp? Forte has a few suggested swaps: tofu, mushrooms or chicken are all great options, and said "you’ll need to add 10 minutes to the cooking time."

Prep: 10 min

Cook: 20 min

Total: 30 min

Ingredients

3/4 pounds of shrimp - peeled and deveined, patted dry

1 small red onion - sliced thin

2 jalapeños - stemmed, mostly seeded and chopped

2 cups of cubed pineapple

2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil

1 1/2 tablespoons of taco seasoning - recipe belowDash of sea salt

Dash of pepper

2 avocados - smashed, for serving

Chopped cilantro for serving

Cotija cheese for serving

8 corn tortillas for serving

How to make your own batch taco seasoning

1 tablespoon cumin

2 tablespoons chili powder

1 teaspoon coriander

2 teaspoons sea salt

1 teaspoon brown sugar

1 teaspoon paprika

Pinch of pepper

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

On a sheet pan (lined with parchment if you want super easy clean up), combine the red onion, seeded jalapeno, shrimp and pineapple in the oil, taco seasoning, and salt. This can also be done in a large mixing bowl.

Spread everything in an even layer. Roast the shrimp mixture on the upper rack for 6 minutes. Turn the heat up to a broil and broil all for 3 minutes.

Squeeze the juice of both limes over the sheet pan ingredients and toss to coat.

While the shrimp cook, warm your tortillas over a flame. Smash some avocado onto the bottom of each tortilla, top it with some of the sheet-pan situation. Garnish with cilantro and cotija.

Tips

Make Ahead: If you are making your own taco seasoning, that can be mixed in advance. Chop your pineapple the day before.

Vegetarian Option: The shrimp can be swapped for mushrooms or extra-firm tofu. Drain and dry the tofu before tossing it in the oil and seasoning, and if you can spare it, I would add 10 minutes to the roasting time for both the tofu and mushroom option.

Kid Friendly: We use the Thrive market taco seasoning as it is not super spicy.
