Weight Watchers Shrimp soft taco recipe: During warm weather months, I eat a lot of shrimp tacos. So, this is a great go-to recipe that only has 3 SmartPoints.

In fact, if you’d rather be outside, you can even (carefully) grill the shrimp and soft taco shells for this recipe.

Weight Watchers Shrimp Tacos Recipe:

Videos for Weight Watchers recipes on youtube are a little crazy. I usually have to watch them 5 times to digest all the info, (and my heart rate goes up!) so here’s an actual recipe for WW shrimp tacos:

WW (Weight Watchers) Shrimp Tacos Recipe. Only 3 WW Smart Points!
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Course Main Course
Servings 4


The Slaw:

  • 2 cups coleslaw mix
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 3 Tbsp light mayo
  • 2 tsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp water

The Shrimp:

  • 1 lb. medium or large shrimp
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt



  • Mix all ingredients in a bowl and reserve


  • Mix ingredients together
  • Spray pay with olive oil cooking spray
  • Cook shrimp until done. Set shrimp aside
  • Lightly brown soft taco shells, about 1 minute per side (overcooking will make them hard to fold!)
  • Optional dusting of feta cheese crumbles
  • I recommend topping with a little chopped avocado, and Sriracha sauce on the side
  • Serve with a lime wedge


*If you are really into spicy, a couple diced chili peppers are also a great addition. We also like to cut corn right from the ear and fry it up (in light olive oil) to serve on the side. 
*That makes a lot of slaw! If you only like a little, (and prefer to add some chopped avocado) maybe halve the slaw part of the recipe. If you add avocado, it will add one Smart Point, though.
Serves 4-5. Only 3 Smart Points per serving!
