My kind of recipe because it is superbly quick and 100 percent delicious. Sure shrimp cook in less than 5 minutes but try chopping them up into small pieces. The flavor of the spices and oil gets everywhere and they cook in half the time. Shrimp are my favorite type of taco because of the fastness of it and they pair so well with the rest of the toppings.

The toppings here are non-negotiable. Sorry. You need some sweet corn, PICKLED RED ONIONS, melted cheese and that avocado crema I could slather on everything and/or drink straight up. Don’t think about it – make it.

Not only does this meal taste outstanding but it also looks so pretty. Attractive food is important sometimes. Take a pic or video and post it online. Share the good food!
