I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Sheet Pan Pineapple Shrimp Tacos

This! This is summer right here! Juicy pineapple chunks, spiced shrimp, a good helping of fruits and vegetables all on a soft corn tortilla. Then drizzled with a wonderful creamy hot sauce.


2/3 lb (300g) shrimp

2 tbsps olive oil

2 tsps minced garlic

1 tsp chili powder

2 tsps soya sauce

1 1/2 tsps sriracha

salt and pepper to tast

1 cup pineapple chunks

1/4 cup kernel corn

1/4 cup diced onion

1/4 cup diced red bell pepper


Creamy hot sauce drizzle:

1 scotch bonnet pepper, roughly chopped (wear gloves)

1/4 cup + 1 tbsp plain Greek yogurt

2 tbsps lime juice

1 tsp honey


Corn tortillas

mango and spinach (or cilantro) to garnish


Preheat the oven to 425°F. Toss the shrimp in a bag with 1 tbsp olive oil, garlic, chili powder, soya sauce, sriracha, salt and pepper. Place on one side of a parchment lined baking sheet.

Toss the pineapple in the same bag with corn, onion, red pepper and 1 tbsp olive oil and place on the other side of the baking sheet. Roast 8-10 minutes then broil 2 minutes. If the shrimp are done before the pineapple, just loosely cover them with foil while broiling.

While that cooks prepare the sauce. Just place all the sauce ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Set aside.

Toss the shrimp with the pineapple mixture and spoon onto warmed corn tortillas. Top with sliced mango and chopped spinach. Cilantro would be ideal but we're not all cilantro lovers here! Drizzle the hot sauce over top and serve.

Serves 2
