Shrimp Tacos with Cilantro Crema
Updated: Jun 25
Still feeling the summer vibes with these AH-mazing shrimp tacos and ta-die-for cilantro crema.
This is another super healthy recipe, just look at all that color!! More color = more nutrients.
This is also a great and flexible choice for those picky ‘food-can’t-touch’ eaters. Just keep their plate out as you are prepping and throw ingredients on as you get them ready: tomatoes, avocado, cheese, mango. skrimps... Pick those battles. 🤪
