Holly Clegg: Kitchen 101 - BBQ Shrimp Tacos & Marvelous Marinara Sauce (Sept. 10)

Two of my favorites, BBQ shrimp and tacos, in one marvelous recipe.

Makes 4 servings

2 tablespoons minced garlic

3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

1 bunch green onions, chopped

1 teaspoon dried basil leaves

1 tablespoon chili powder

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1/4 cup barbecue sauce

1 cup chopped tomatoes

1/4 cup chopped red onion

Salt and pepper to taste

4 flour tortillas, warmed


1. In bowl or resealable plastic bag, coat shrimp with olive oil. Add all ingredients except tomatoes, onion, and tortillas. Marinate 1-2 hours, time permitting.
