This recipe can be made with homemade corn tortillas but you can of course use store bought tortillas as well. Homemade corn tortillas can be a little less pliable than store ones. As I love homemade corn tortillas that is what I used.
As these shrimp taquitos are baked in the oven they are low fat and you do not have that smell of fried foods in the house which is an added bonus.

How to make oven baked shrimp taquitos

Cut the shrimp in small pieces. When the tomatoes are soft add the shrimp and parsley and pan fry them as well. Stir regularly until the shrimp are warm and set aside.
In the mean while warm 3 corn tortillas in the microwave for 30 seconds between two pieces of kitchen paper. This will make them more pliable. Scoop about three table spoons of shrimp mixture on the tortillas. Roll them tight and place them on a baking tray. Use a toothpick to secure the taquito.
