I have been craving these Coconut Shrimp Tacos with Fresh Lime Slaw weekly for the past few months. Something about the bright, summery flavors makes the cold weather more bareable. Not to mention how easy they are to make.

The bright colors mix well with the bright citrus flavor. You can also feel free to top with some cilantro or add some to the slaw!


Coconut Shrimp Tacos with Fresh Lime Slaw

  • 1 - 13oz box Frozen Coconut Shrimp, we like the Red Lobster brand
