Absolutely the best shrimp tacos Iv'e had

Tasty lunch. I also made some cilantro lime rice to put on the taco, which was delicious.

This turned out awesome, i added a little red pepper to relish, had only 1 pound of shrimp so i added two small portions of fresh tuna, cooked in gas fired wok as hot and fast as it would. Very tasty! This easily made my top ten!

This is a really tasty and fairly quick dinner. I took a few liberties with the shrimp because I didn't have tequila on hand. The relish is a great taco topping. I made fresh corn tortillas with this which gave this recipe another taste dimension. Try this recipe, it's a keeper!
