Taco Tuesday I DID NOT EVEN PLAN THAT.
These are super fun, too. A little crunchy, a little buttermilky, a bit creamy, a little zesty, a lot delicious. You in?
Let us peepeth.
So it’s fairly simple. There’s nothing too over-the-top laborious, unless you count our flash fry situation in a bit.
Thing is, this all has a buffalo flavor. Did you see that in a the title? It’s buffalo. The sour cream has buffalo sauce in it. Buffalo. You’re so welcome, pigeons.
For the shrimp, go as small as you can! I can’t remember the size (40something/50something?) but get ’em teensy, ‘mkay?
Then just let them hang out in a buttermilk bath for a few minutes. Like 15 if you need something concrete to hold onto.
Then let’s mix the sour cream with buffalo sauce. Why this is so delicious we may never know. Besides it being SOUR CREAM AND BUFFALO SAUCE.
So, okay. I didn’t do a full-on breading execution. The panko will stick to the buttermilk SOMEWHAT. But you need to know some may/definitely will fall off in the frying. But also, I just let those fallen breadcrumbs get crispy and brown in the oil, then scooped them up and used them as a little topping in the end. See how things work out in life?
This photo would be have been a better choice when explaining all that, but I’m still a good person.
And there we have it! Warmed charred tortillas, crispy shrimp, tangy buffalo sour cream drizzle, a bit of fresh cilantro and zesty lime.
Look, I’m not into sports, but I’m in into moods, and this one is festive a f.
And honestly, if I’m being honest, with all honesty, I like sports foods. Which you will judge, and that is fine, because I’ve accepted this oxymoron about myself. Give me buffalo anything and I’m a giddy cliché.
The cheese? Finely grated white cheddar. Like, you know the side of your grater that has the smallest holes? Use it. Get this in that. And if the cheese is COLD the grates will curl up! These aren’t curly because my cheese wasn’t that cold.
Next game day? Get in it.
Next taco night? Make your life about it.
Next easy weeknight friendly meal? You’re good to go.
Put some of that buffalo sour cream underneath the shrimp, too! #protip
