Shrimp Taco Cauliflower Rice Bowls are among my favorite of my cauliflower rice bowl creations.

This dish is not only full of freshness from the gorgeous veggies, it’s full of deliciousness as well!

The dressing is the same one that I use in my Shrimp Taco Salad.

It’s my Fresh and Easy Homemade Salsa, reduced fat sour cream, and a squeeze of lime juice all mixed together.

I also add hot sauce, so if you’re into a little bit of spice, add that as well.

Any store brand salsa that you like is perfectly fine if you don’t have homemade.

How to make Shrimp Taco Cauliflower Rice Bowls

The shrimp marinade is half a packet of taco seasoning, olive oil, kosher salt, and pepper.

Now remember above when I said I used homemade salsa for the dressing?!

Let’s keep that in mind and not judge for me using the taco seasoning packet 😉

If you have a homemade blend of taco seasoning by all means, use that.

I cut a little corner there, it’s a classic busy mom move.

The shrimp go onto a baking sheet and into a 425 degree oven for 5-7 minutes.

You could also cook them in the air fryer for 8 minutes at 400 degrees.

Let them cool slightly before assembling the cauliflower rice bowls.

As the shrimp were in the oven, I microwaved two bags of cauliflower rice.

Then seasoned them with a little of the remaining taco seasoning packet.

Divide the rice evenly between 4 bowls (or containers if meal prepping).

Top with the shrimp, corn, avocado, tomato, cheese, and some fresh cilantro.

Serve with the taco dressing and even add some hot sauce or a squeeze of fresh lime over top.

Feel free to add some black beans or pickled jalapenos too!
