Weight Watchers Shrimp Tacos Recipe: (3 Smart Points)

Weight Watchers Shrimp soft taco recipe: During warm weather months, I eat a lot of shrimp tacos. 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:

1.) To make 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

Instructions: Mix all ingredients in a bowl and reserve.

2.) To make the shrimp:


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


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

*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 that part of the recipe. If you add avocado, it will add one Smart Point, though.

Serves 4-5. Only 3 Smart Points per serving!
