Quick and Easy 15 Minute Shrimp Tacos #15minutesuppers

Sharing is caring!

One thing that I have come to love eating is shrimp. I used to hate it and couldn't even stand the smell, but the older I get, the more I love seafood and shrimp is like chicken — you can add it to anything and it tastes good.

This week for the 15 Minute Supper dish, I decided to share my recipe for Shrimp Tacos. They are super delicious and are quick and easy to make.

You can pare this with my homemade pico de gallo, guacamole, cilantro lime rice, and chips and salsa and you will have yourself a well rounded Mexican fiesta!
