This week’s recipe for Cook the Book Fridays comes from Dorie Greenspan’s latest cookbook, Everyday Dorie and it’s a brilliant one for the lazy days of summer when you don’t particularly want to cook but want to eat something more than a salad.
Fair warning – it does have a lot of components: the shrimp, an avocado mash, a pico de gallo-type affiar (with peaches and pineapple – love the sweet and savoury combo in this dish!) and a spicy mayonnaise/ dressing. There are also a fair number of ingredients (spices etc…) so it might look daunting to start with. Many of Dorie’s recipes in this book are pretty simple and short so this one surprised me a bit at first glance.
Never fear, because it’s Dorie, the components are actually super simple and everything except the shrimp can actually be prepared in advance so it’s a perfect meal for summer entertaining. There are SO many flavours going on and you wonder if it’s maybe going to be too much but somehow (because it’s Dorie!) they all manage to work in harmony!
Get the recipe for Dorie Greenspan’s Shrimp Tacos on page 196 of Everyday Dorie or a version here.
