For the Blackening Seasoning:

For the Creamy Dill Sauce:

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill chopped
  • 1/4 cup scallions chopped
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • juice of one lime
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the Tacos:


  • Mix the ingredients for the blackening seasoning together and set aside (alternatively, you may use 3 tablespoons of a pre made blackening seasoning).
  • Mix ingredients for creamy dill sauce in a bowl. Refrigerate.
  • Pat the shrimp as dry as you can.
  • Coat shrimp in olive oil.
  • Press the shrimp into the seasoning mixture to cover all sides.
  • Heat butter in a cast iron (or other heavy) skillet.
  • Cook shrimp in butter (2 tablespoons) on medium-high heat on both sides until cooked (approximately 3 minutes on each side).
  • Meanwhile, toast corn tortillas in your oven or over your gas burners (be careful if you do this!), or just microwave them to soften a bit.
  • Serve tacos by layering 2-3 shrimp in each tortilla, topped with creamy dill sauce and other optional fixings.
