Amazingly Easy Shrimp Tacos

Shrimp Tacos

Today I’m sharing my recipe for Shrimp Tacos.

This has been a go-to spring and summer dinner recipe in my house for over 10 years.  It’s simple, easy to make and full of flavor.

Shrimp Tacos

You can easily pair it with black beans, my Mexican rice and my Mexican corn to complete the meal.   I like to use either the outdoor grill with a grill basket or an indoor cast iron grill.  I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
