    It was great. The sauce was amazing. I used a whole Jalapeño for the sauce and it was the perfect amount of spice.

    Loved the sauce!!! The only thing I would do next time is bbq the shrimp. They have good flavor as-is but grilled shrimp in tacos is my favorite.

    It was delicious!! I didn’t use lime zest or fresh jalapeños(I used a can of green chilies). It still turned out very good but I think next time I’ll get fresh for that fresh kick. I put half an avocado in the sauce and also cut up slices for the tacos. I didn’t mind that I had extra sauce because I loved it on the cabbage on it’s own, even after all the shrimp and tortillas were gone!😋
