I am super excited to be partnering with Zatarain’s to celebrate National Shrimp Day on May 10th!

These Creole Shrimp Tacos are the best way to celebrate National Shrimp Day! Or truly, any day of the week.

With my family from Louisiana, I am aware that this fusion might make our ancestors roll their eyes.

But what can I say, I myself was raised in Texas and we will put anything in a tortilla! Plus, it’s DELICIOUS!

If you didn’t already know, Zatarain’s has been around since 1889 and was born in New Orleans.

Zatarain’s keeps it real with 100% U.S.-grown, parboiled long grain rice.

They always use all real ingredients with zero artificial flavors or colors because good ingredients make great flavor!

To put it another way, you’re getting quality food made with the ingredients you would find in your granny’s kitchen.

These Creole Shrimp Tacos are filled with all the amazing New Orleans flavors we all love.

We start with gorgeous creole seasoned, butter sautéed, fresh gulf shrimp.

I also added some cajun sausage to keep these tacos reminiscent of a classic Jambalaya.

We cook the Zatarain’s Jambalaya Mix according to the package directions and layer it on the bottom of tortillas.

Then we add the fresh hot shrimp and sausage right on top.

Some optional toppings we used were fresh parsley, red bell pepper, green onion and some lemon wedges.

These Creole Shrimp Tacos are crazy easy to make for a quick weeknight dinner, while still being incredibly flavorful.

Feel free to switch it up and use different meats like crawfish, boudin, fish or even fried alligator!
