I just don’t think they could be any better.

And… I must really have a thing for shrimp lately to boot.

Remember the shrimp and avocado salad from the other day? Yep, I probably love them so much because it is so garsh-durned hot and humid here in Georgia lately and because shrimp is so cool and delicious. It must just be what I’m craving!

It could also be because they couldn’t be any simpler to prepare and toss into so many different dishes. Like these tacos for instance.

Wham, bam, boom. They don’t take but just a few minutes to toss together and serve for a quick meal.

For these shrimp tacos, you’ll want either flour or corn tortillas and then fill them with layers of a cabbage cole slaw, shrimp, avocado slices, and then top them with a sriracha cream sauce and pico de gallo for tons of flavor.

    Not that I’m complaining about this, because I know how lucky I am, but I have a freezer FULL of tasty Pacific spot prawns that my husband caught and I have run out of ideas for them. This is so going on next week’s menu. Plus, I love that it’s so easy because I’m pregnant, tired, and the kitchen is just too hot to spend time in right now! Thanks for the idea!
