Grilled Shrimp Tacos


I’m on a taco kick lately- like for the past ten years.  HA!  But seriously they’re my go-to when I want something delicious, quick and easy.  They’re like reruns of The Office- they’ll always please and never ask anything of me.  Today’s incarnation are grilled shrimp piled with crisp red cabbage, cilantro, jalapeno, lime crema and cotija cheese.  Simple, satisfying, healthy and perfect for al fresco summer dining.  I know you’ll love them!  xx- Sarah

    These were delicious! We live in a prawn fishing town in Australia so it was perfect. Thank you! I loved the lime it was amazing. Only thing is we didn’t have sour cream and used greek yogurt but with the lime and a bit of salt it was to die for.
