Coconut Shrimp Tacos

Another delicious recipe using Coconut Shrimp. My Coconut Shrimp Tacos recipe is fresh and full of flavour. Did I mention it’s super easy to make too?

My Coconut Shrimp recipe was such a hit with my family and friends that I have incorporated it into a number of recipes since. Firstly, I made a delicious bowl of Coconut Shrimp Salad and last weekend I tried a new recipe, Coconut Shrimp Tacos.

My favorite kind of taco is one filled with crunchy fried ingredients (naughty, I know) and this is on par with my favourite Crispy Fish Tacos. I let the coconut and pineapple flavours do all the talking, so I just teamed it with cabbage, a squeeze of lime and a sprinkle of coriander.

This is a fresh and flavoursome dish, perfect for lunch or dinner and can be enjoyed any time of the year.

Now tell me dear reader, what’s your favourite type of taco?

      Thanks Chris! I’m probably a little bias here, but they are!
