Shrimp and Corn Salad Tortillas












Thursday Healthy Meal
2 c. fresh corn kernels or 10-oz. of frozen, thawed

1 pint cherry tomatoes, quartered

1 small jicama, cut into thin strips (optional)

1 pound peeled and deveined large cooked shrimp

1/2 c shelled roasted pumpkin seeds

6 scallions (white and light green parts) thinly sliced


1/4 c. fresh orange juice

2 T. fresh lime juice

2 tsp. honey

1 tsp. ground cumin

1 T. olive oil

3/4 tsp. kosher salt

1/4 tsp. black pepper


In a large bowl, combine the corn, tomatoes, jicama (if using), shrimp, pumpkin seeds, and scallions. In a separate bowl, whisk together the orange and lime juices, honey, cumin, oil, salt, and pepper. Toss with the shrimp mixture. Serve over salad or in a tortilla.

So we tried these tonight and they were tasty! The picture doesn't do them justice but they were very, very fresh and the taste of cumin! Oh, I love that spice. Anyway, as you can see in the picture I omitted the tomatoes because I forgot to buy them (my bad) but I am sure they add a wonderful flavor. As far as the pumpkin seeds go, you can find them at any Trader Joes or Whole Foods place.

I served these with a side salad that had pomogranites on it (one of my favorite Fall/Winter fruit) and sliced grapefruit (not shown). We enjoyed these tortillas and we hope you do to! :)
