Beer Battered Shrimp Tacos with Fire Roasted Tortilla Shells for Two

These Beer Battered Shrimp tacos have deep fried crispy golden brown shrimp with the perfect beer batter coating layered on top of creamy tangy coleslaw stuffed into a fire roasted tortilla taco shell.

The fire roasted tortilla shells are optional and require either a gas stove or a gas grill. If you have either of those things, I highly recommend roasting them, it adds soooo much flavor to the tortillas.

Repeat with the remaining shrimp. Leave plenty of room, don’t crowd the cooking process.

Let the shrimp cook, attended, until one side is puffed and golden, about 2 minutes. Use tongs and turn them over and cook until golden on the other side, about 2 minutes more.

Immediately drain on paper towels.

For the Tortilla Shells:

If you have a gas stove, or a gas grill, turn the heat on low.

Place one tortilla shell over the flame and watch the bottom closely. They brown really fast, about 30 seconds, and you don’t want them to burn or stay over the flame too long.

As soon as you see the tortilla begin to brown, use a pair of tongs to turn it over and brown the second side.
