Overflowing with fat succulent shrimp, this buttery garlicky spatula made many seafood lovers very happy last Saturday at Hummingbird Nest Ranch.

It’s a cool breezy Thursday here in SOHO TACO galactic headquarters and we’re having wonderful memories of last weekend’s feast in Simi Valley.

In case you missed it, last Saturday night we had the privilege of grilling up a storm of delectable delights for the wonderful wedding guests and, of course, the lovely newlyweds at the sprawling estate better known as Hummingbird Nest Ranch.

Here’s a video showcasing just a fraction of the good times:

This 123 acre estate is sooooooo huge, there were three enormous weddings going on at the same time! And, in case you’re wondering, we couldn’t even hear a thing from the other festivities.

So, what better way to match a large property than with big, bold flavors?! That evening we dazzled many palates with many of our offerings, but easily one of our most popular dishes was our #TacoDeCamarones.

This uber popular delight is not only in hot demand at our public food truck stops, but it’s also one of the hottest items at our private catered events. And, it’s no wonder. It’s flavorful, satisfying and absolutely gorgeous to look at.

To make it we start out with top quality seafood shipped direct to our kitchen, where our skilled chefs prepare the shrimp with love adding plenty of herbs and spices before shipping it out to the event site.

Then, at the taco cart, our on site chef throws the batch right onto the grill with a good amount of garlic butter, but only for a few minutes just to cook in about half way through.

When it’s placed in its container, it continues to cook and pretty much retains the heat throughout the event.

Once the guests arrive to the grill they place their orders and that’s when we throw the seafood back onto the grill for a quick reheating and place it on the bed of cheese on top of the tortilla.

Finally, we top it off with a little squeeze of chipotle sour cream, kind of like this:

The finished product is a fat, succulent taco bursting at the seams garlicky, buttery shrimp. From there the guest has the option of dressing it up to their liking with lime, cilantro, salsa, etc. But, to be honest, it’s even just as good as it is!

If we’ve got your moth salivating don’t worry, we have plenty of opportunities for you to try it. Just be sure to check out our calendar for our next food truck stop or, better yet, get invited to the next wedding that we’re catering!

Our Taco de Camarones was easily one of the leading favorites at last weekend’s wedding in Santa Susana. For those of you who had the chance to try it, we certainly hope you enjoyed it as much as we did grilling it for you.

And, for the rest of you out there, we hope to have the opportunity whip up a few of these for you soon.

Have a great rest of your Thursday and see you soon.

Buen provecho!
