Tacos de Camarones

1 1/2 pounds small uncooked shrimp, shelled

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1 teaspoon cumin seeds

1 teaspoon dried oregano

Salt and pepper, to taste

Vegetable oil (for sprinkling)

16 5-inch corn tortillas

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

3 tablespoons chopped onion

1 lime, cut into wedges (for garnish)

1 jar (16 ounces) salsa or salsa verde

1. In a bowl, combine the shrimp, oil, cumin seeds, oregano, salt, and pepper. Cover and refrigerate, tossing occasionally, for 2 hours.

2. About 10 minutes before serving, sprinkle enough oil in a large skillet to make a thin film in the pan. When it is hot, saute the shrimp over high heat for 2 minutes, stirring constantly, or until they are bright pink. Alternatively, spear the shrimp on bamboo skewers and grill them over a hot charcoal grill, turning constantly, until they are cooked through.

3. Meanwhile, heat a large griddle and cook the tortillas for 10 seconds on each side. Transfer them as they are done to a covered dish.

4. Toss the cooked shrimp with cilantro and onion.

5. Serve with wedges of lime and salsa or salsa verde.
