This Cilantro-Lime Shrimp Bowl was created out of frustration when a corn tortilla decided to break on me while I was trying to eat delicious tacos. I have a love for Chipotle’s “Burrito Bowl” (who doesn’t have a love for Chipotle?) so I decided to do a spin off of that. This dish is full of flavor while not breaking the bank calorie wise. The recipe makes enough for one person (hey all you singles out there, no one is forgetting about you!) but could easily double for two. Adapted from Self.


  • 3 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 3 teaspoons lime juice, divided
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro, divided
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 8 large shrimp, shelled, deveined, tails removed
  • 1/2 cup bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion, diced
  • 2 corn tortillas
  • 3 tablespoons nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons avocado, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons salsa
  • salt and pepper to taste


Step 1

CILANTRO-LIME SHRIMP: In a bowl, mix 2 teaspoons of the olive oil, 2 teaspoons of the lime juice, 1 tablespoon of the cilantro, garlic and shrimp. Cover and let chill in the fridge for 20 minutes to marinate.

Step 2

While the shrimp is marinating, prepare your toppings. Mix the last teaspoon of lime juice, last tablespoon of the cilantro and nonfat plain Greek yogurt and set aside with your avocado and salsa.

Step 3

In a medium sized skillet over medium heat, saute the bell pepper and onion with the remaining teaspoon of olive oil until softened.

Step 4

Add the shrimp and the marinade to the skillet and cook until the shrimp are pink, about 3-4 minutes.

Step 5

Pour the contents of the skillet into a bowl and top with your Greek yogurt, salsa and avocado.

Step 6

HOMEMADE TORTILLA CHIPS: Preheat your oven to 400º. Place your two corn tortillas on top of each other and cut into quarters like a pizza.

Step 7

Lay the pieces of tortilla on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt. Place in the oven for about 15 minutes or until crispy.

Step 8

Let sit for 5 minutes before serving, this helps them crisp up.
