I know that having your whole family home all of the time can get a little hectic, but Best Foods® Drizzle Sauces and Knorr® Bouillon take some of the stress away by being the perfect meal solution to get you the most amazing restaurant flavor right in your own kitchen!
Best Foods® Drizzle Sauces are the perfect solution that can truly transform any recipe! Now that most of our meals are being enjoyed at home, it’s time to bring restaurant flavor and experience straight to your own kitchen.
These sauces are so good! They’re a tasty way to transform any recipe into a restaurant-worthy meal!
I tried two of the flavors this time. The Roasted Garlic Drizzle Sauce and the Cilantro Lime Drizzle Sauce. Both were amazing! I drizzled the Roasted Garlic over my tacos, and the Cilantro Lime over my side salad (just a simple fresh leafed lettuce and beautiful tomatoes salad). So tasty!
Next time I’m going to try the Creamy Chili Honey and the Roasted Red Pepper sauces. They sound so good.
The Roasted Garlic Sauce is made with loads of real garlic for a robust, warm-roasted taste you’ll love. Use it as a drizzle, dressing, or dip to add instant savory flavor to sandwiches, vegetables, and more. I think it would be fantastic as a dip for French fries or onion rings, and it tastes great drizzled over mashed potatoes!
The Cilantro Lime Sauce is made with hatch chiles, tomatillos, and creamy avocado oil for a slightly spicy, zesty flavor. It’s great on salads, fish, and anything else that could use some big, bright flavor.
Both of these drizzle sauces contain no artificial flavors or high fructose corn syrup, and they’re dairy-free, gluten-free, and low in added sugars.
I love these Knorr® Bouillon powders. You’ve seen me use them before in my Creamy Verde Fiesta Enchiladas and my Shrimp and Mexican Street Corn Bowl. I use their Bouillon all the time in my day-to-day cooking.
And now that I cook most all of our meals at home these Bouillons save me time and bring added flavored to my dishes.
I also like that the Knorr® Selects Bouillon comes in a large jar so it lasts a nice long time.
Super King Market
I grabbed the Best Foods® Drizzle Sauces and Knorr® Selects Bouillon products at my local Super King Market.
Both of these products can be found on the condiment aisle of their stores.

Sautéed shrimp notes
The sautéed shrimp for these tacos are super easy to make and so delicious! And, aren’t those little flecks of herbs and spices pretty? Those come from the Knorr® Selects Bouillon.
Simply defrost raw frozen, peeled (or EZ peel) & deveined shrimp, and remove the shell. I like to buy large shrimp 16-25 count per pound; they’re nice big shrimp.
To defrost the shrimp, place them in a bowl, and cover with cool tap water. Change the water out for fresh tap water a couple of times, and in about 5 minutes they’ll be defrosted. At this point, the shell is easily removable.
Pat the shrimp dry with a paper towel and add them to a skillet with a little oil, and Knorr® Selects Bouillon, and sear them to perfection.
Shrimp Tacos with Roasted Garlic Sauce Recipe
Shrimp Tacos with Roasted Garlic Sauce
- ½ small purple cabbage shredded
- 1 large avocado pitted peeled, and sliced
- ½ red onion diced
- ¼ bunch cilantro coarsely chopped
- 1 lime cut into wedges
- 6 corn tortillas small, 6-inch diameter
For the shrimp:
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 pound raw shrimp defrosted, peeled, and deveined
- 1 tablespoon Knorr® Selects Chicken or Vegetable Bouillon
Remaining taco ingredients:
- Best Foods® Drizzle Roasted Garlic Sauce
Start by prepping the taco fillings:
- Thinly slice the cabbage, slice the avocado, finely chop the red onion, coarsely chop the cilantro, and cut the lime into wedges.
- Toast the tortillas: If you have a gas range, you can toast the tortillas over an open gas stovetop flame on medium/low heat for about 10 seconds per side, until lightly charred on the edges. Or, heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, and add the tortillas one at a time, and toast 15-30 seconds until golden brown. Cover the tortillas with a clean cotton cloth to keep them warm and from drying out while you prepare the shrimp.
- Place the frozen shrimp in a medium bowl and cover with cool tap water to defrost. Change the water out for fresh tap water a couple of times, and in about 5 minutes they’ll be defrosted.
- Pat the defrosted shrimp dry with a paper towel.
- Heat a non-stick or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, and add 1 tablespoon oil. Add shrimp in a single layer, stirring occasionally, until shrimp turn pink and are just cooked through, about 3-5 minutes. Add Knorr® Selects Bouillon, and stir in. Remove shrimp from the skillet, and set aside.
- Arrange cabbage, avocado, red onion, and cilantro in the toasted tortillas, and top with shrimp. Drizzle generously with Best Foods® Drizzle Roasted Garlic Sauce. Serve with lime wedges.
