    It turned out great! I felt the cilantro cream was a tad bland so I added a can of mild green chilis and it was perfect

    Great recipe, if I had to change 1 thing, I’d recommend cooking the cabbage before adding to your serving platter.

    These shrimp tacos were amazing,and yes the seasoning and the sauce make the tacos. No one wanted tacos but me so I grilled shrimp in toaster oven for the rest of the family. I used basically the same recipe but used jumbo shrimp so I sliced them in half long ways, using about 12. I layed them on out on tray from toaster over adding a little orange and lemon juice. Cooked about 10 minutes at 400 degrees. For sauce added 🍎 cider vinegar, tabasco and Chipotle sauce to recipe. Cooked white corn tortillas with canola oil in teflon skillet, about 1 1/2 -2 minutes on each side on high heat. Everything went perfect. Used avocados, purple cabbage, cilantro, conjita cheese, fresh jalapeños and lime wedges. Excellent recipe, good favof. Most time spent on cutting up sides. Recommend highly. New Favorite food.

    It turned out delicious! My family enjoy the sauce especially. We put a little more Sriracha sauce to make it a little spicier.
