Mealtime Monday - CarbLovers Shrimp Tacos with Lime Crema

I haven't shared a recipe in a while. This is from one of my new favorite cookbooks - Carb Lovers Diet Cookbook, that I mentioned in one of my last posts. I cheated though lightly fried some flour tortillas - DECADENT! I could only have one.

CarbLovers Shrimp Tacos with Lime Crema

1 poundmedium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 tablespoon lime juice
8 (6-inch) corn tortillas, warmed
2 cups shredded lettuce
1/4 cupfinely diced red onion

In a medium bowl, toss shrimp with chili powder, cumin, and pepper. In a small bowl, stir together sour cream and 1 tablespoon lime juice. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat; sauté shrimp 3 minutes, turning once, or until done. Remove from heat; toss with 1 tablespoon lime juice. Fill warmed corn tortillas with shredded lettuce, shrimp mixture and diced red onion; drizzle tacos with lime crema.
