I love that making this shrimp taco recipe means that even the picky eaters in the house will try things like cabbage. A simple cabbage cole slaw to top this taco is a great way to encourage your kids to try a vegetable that they otherwise wouldn’t. With the spices and cream sauce, the cabbage topping provides just the right crunch to complete this simple recipe.

Serve our chipotle shrimp taco with a side of rice, beans or by themselves with plenty of the cole slaw and pico de gallo. Don’t forget to toast your corn tortillas lightly before you serve your tacos to bring out the roasted corn flavor that will pull this easy taco dish together for the perfect light meal.

What Do You Put In Shrimp Tacos

I know the ingredient list looks daunting but really shrimp tacos come together pretty easy!  I like to fill my shrimp tacos with plenty of spice, pico de gallo, cabbage and some form of lime.  In this particular shrimp taco recipe I use a chipotle lime creama drizzled over all my goodies.  If I don’t get the chipotle lime creama made a drizzle of fresh lime juice is the perfect way to top off these shrimp tacos.
