Shrimp Tacos with Spicy Coleslaw



Shrimp Tacos Spicy Coleslaw www.cookingonthefrontburners.com

Today I'm sharing what was to be our Father's Day dinner. As mentioned in this post we were kinda full from our lunch so we passed on dinner and ended up going to our friends for drinks and dessert.  Since I had all the ingredients, this was our Monday night dinner.  By then we were definitely ready and craving these.

Do you like shrimp or fish tacos?  I'm really trying to come up with the best Shrimp Taco recipe and I think this one is pretty close!  The kicker is the spicy coleslaw which can be served also as a side dish.... so I'm thinking I may be making this a few more times this summer. 

The shrimp is easy to prepare - just sprinkle some chili powder and grill them on a small grate.  They will be done in about 5 minutes.  Warm up some tortillas, add the slaw, shrimp and we also added some grated monterey jack cheese and a cilantro sour cream sauce.

  2. I agree--shrimp tacos need some good crunchy slaw. I have a great recipe for a fish taco but I have a bag of shrimp in the freezer so this is going on the menu this weekend!
    Thanks Deb--they look delicious.
