Grilled Shrimp Tacos
Shrimp are a natural for the grill. They cook quickly, look impressive, and can take any seasoning you throw at them, making them perfect for tacos. Served with a simple chipotle sauce for some kick, and a fresh slaw for some crunch, these tacos are a fiesta of tastes and textures in every bite.
