Gwyneth Paltrow: Shrimp Taco Recipe Revealed!

Gwyneth Paltrow shows how to prepare a Mexican family-style meal in her latest GOOP newsletter, including southern California classic, grilled shrimp tacos.

The 37-year-old Iron Man actress writes, “It is possible to make a quick and easy dinner for the family that everyone loves. Make it your own; set up all the parts separately and then explore variations on a theme. The kids can eat black bean and brown rice tacos with guacamole and pico de gallo without hot chili. The grownups can have grilled shrimp, hot sauce…”

    She looks like a dude in that video.

  • villa

    Is it that slow of a news day?

  • Novatna

    She is not a bad actress but lacks the charisma to be a good cooking show host.

  • lol


  • just me

    Gwyneth looks very uncomfortable.
    Perhaps she’s more comfortable on screen when she’s playing someone else?

  • Josie

    that actually looks good and very simple.
    shall try.

  • from paris with love

    i kinda like her. she’s just doing her thing, doing no harm to anyone.

  • twitters

    @swifty: Agree, her and her brother could be twins.

  • hmmm

    Paltrow should stick to newsletters or hire someone else to do the videos. She’s too stiff.

  • Ginger

    This is an advertising tie-in to promote her upcoming cookbook. Not a very good one either.

  • oh snap

    Damn! That’s one ugly man!

  • pr guy

    @villa: Possibly but this blog seems to get paid to promote Huvane’s clients. I guess he remembered he was neglecting GP.

  • Horton

    Gwyneth is just plain dog ugly.
    Not a good actress anymore, not in my book anyway.

  • dancer

    I think she’s be o.k. if she didn’t have such a nasal voice.

  • gp

    She looks like a granny.

  • issie

    @dancer: It does grate.

  • Listen

    I think she knows her career as an actress is tapering off; it has been for a while. She has maybe one more Iron Man film left if she’s lucky and that role could be played well by tons of actresses. Parts tend to dry up as actresses approach 40 and she’s in a large peer group competing for roles.

    She needs to work on her technique if she’s serious about this new career.

  • Oh No They Didn’t

    Goopy does not look good without makeup.

  • Kris

    @swifty: G.P. tends to look masculine when her hair’s pulled back and she’s wearing minimal makeup. She benefits immensely from good styling and makeup.

  • techniques

    Gwyn missed the cooking class on how not to lick your fingers and then stick them back in the guacamole. I guess as long as it’s your family it’s okay, but icky otherwise.

  • meme

    I prefer when she talks about food. The rest of her newsletter tends to be unrealistic, especially in this economy.

  • .

    So many haters on here.
    What’s the point? Life is short! You’re taking time out of your day to say something bad about someone you seem to not like. Why not do something more productive?
    I’ve noticed “good looking” people don’t talk as much sh*t about other people. Must have a lot of fugs posting about how fug they think Gwyneth is!
    I think she does a lot more than most people do! She works long hours, obviously she’s cooked at least a few meals.. you can tell by the way she handles her utensils and food, and she’d supporting herself. What’s the problem?

  • coldplaying

    She looks like a human Gumby in that video.

  • Hannah

    Good looking people probably talk more sh*t than average looking people. I can’t see through computer screens so hard to tell what the ppl here look like, but Paltrow has been known to talk plenty of sh*t and that’s why she’s so disliked. Some consider her good looking, others don’t. I think she’s just very plain.

    Paltrow works maybe three months out of the year so I’d hardly call that working more than most people. The average person works at least 40 hours a week 11-12 months a year.

  • Hannah

    Glad she’s cooked a meal or two. Most mothers have. Agree, she needs to develop her hosting presence if she’s actually going to do this on a regular basis and isn’t just trying to make some short-term money.

    Also agree, she should stick to cooking newsletters. Her last one that went on and on about the loft that was remodeled for her stay at the expense of her indie film producers was obnoxious.

  • GPS

    Watching this pretentious airhead demonstrating how she stuffs her tacos with shrimps has made my life really, really complete.

  • @28

    You sound bitter. I would work 3 months a year if I could. And just because it’s only 3 months a year doesn’t mean 12-16 hour days are any easier.
    I haven’t heard her talk sh*t about anyone. Maybe in your head she has.

  • Liz

    WOW, there are some nasty people on this site! Why are you that mean?

  • Vartan

    IA with #28. That’s not a bitter comment, just realistic. Paltrow has an established history of talking crap and then whining when she’s called out for it. She’s well-known for her ignorant stereotypes about people and countries.

    Even if she works 12-16 hours a day, so what? Plenty of people do the same who work all year round.

  • ck

    Thank baby Jesus that Gwyneth Paltrow’s shrimp taco recipe is available for all the world to enjoy. I can now die in peace. Take me Lord.

  • Susie#1

    It would be great if GP found another outlet for her “creativity” – like focusing on being the greatest mom to her kids and wife to her husband – rather than dispensing her elitist opinions to the great unwashed masses. (I am not minimizing mothers and wives.) She and Mario Batali went on a food journey as research for a cookbook. Batali REALLY knows food and presentation, and has a great personality. I wonder if he was bored out of his mind traveling with her, because if nothing else, she is dull and too self-focused.

  • statingtheobvious

    Let’s be honest, she’s not ugly. Saying she’s ugly is borderline ridiculous. She’s just pretentious as hell. She is so pretentious, it makes her unappealing. The nasally voice, the Goop website. I see what she’s trying to do, but it just fails. Is this a good recipe, yes, (minus the shrimp), but who has a grill in their kitchen? The way she says, “oh, if you don’t have a grill, use a frying pan” is so typical of her. Duh, 90% of her audience wouldn’t have a grill like that in their kitchen. I thought she practiced Kabbalah, what’s with the shrimp? She use to be a decent actress, but the second she went to England with Chris Martin, she became unbearable.

  • http://justjared bre

    I’m from monterrey mexico and that is not the way you make pico de gallo or guacamole!!! By the way black beans gross! She probly thought that was the way to make charro beans. Thant is not MEXICAN food. Why don’t you just have a cabrito al pastor!!! DELICIOUS!!!

  • nakedoldjennifer

    @36 ITA
    i stopped liking her yrs ago because she is so pretentious and condescending

  • kate

    Wow, what’s with all these nasty comments?? I’m pretty sure they’ve all been posted by the same person using different names. Who ever you are you need to get off the web before your head explodes and snakes crawl out.

  • poo

    Yeah, I have to agree that that is not Mexican food. That is white people tacos. People in America, who are white, tend to love black beans. They say it is healthier. Also, who puts rice in a taco?!?! Gross! She can keep that recipe.

    Gwyn missed the cooking class on how not to lick your fingers and then stick them back in the guacamole. I guess as long as it’s your family it’s okay, but icky otherwise.

    I see some chefs do this on the food network and I’m like hmmmmm “What are they thinking”. Who wants germs in their food. lol. When tasting one should use a spoon. How hard is that? Oh, and don’t REUSE the spoon without washing it.
    Oh, for those who don’t know. Double dipping a cracker or chip into dip being shared carries a lot of germs too. You might think about this when you’re at a party.
    Wonder what she’s going to do when the Iron Man series is over.

  • brandi boo boo bear

    I think she is trying to show how to eat healthy.
    What is wrong with that???

  • Cheyenne

    Some of you are totally insane with envy. At least she is doing more than hiding behind a computer monitor and talking crap just to pass the time away. Is there no shame left in the world?

  • always

    @Cheyenne: Nothing to be jealous of here. People should feel sorry for her. She’s proof money can’t buy happiness.
    She seems to be trying to transition into some sort of lifestyle guru/Martha Stewart type business but she doesn’t have the likability right now with her target audience.

  • Chile

    I looove Gwyneth…she’s so down to earth
    a beautiful person, and a good mum

    love it!

  • anonymous

    The food looks delicious, but the sound of the fork scraping against the aluminum bowl was like fingers on a blackboard – OW! My ears couldn’t take it.

  • Jessica

    what a hottie

  • Cecii Es

    uhm.. that’s not a real taco. . haha


    He still loves his Gwynnie. Forever his girl. He wanted her for the mother of his children, then he ended up with Aniston and after that, he sank even lower and settled for Angelina. Yes, Angie is third rate. Always.

  • me

    I think she is very beautiful even without makeup! I’m going to try the recipe tonight! I think you are all just jealous of her.
