I never thought I’d like shrimp tacos, honestly.

But, these things are amazing!

Between the saltiness of the shrimp, the crispness of the cabbage salad and the sweetness of the pineapple and corn, heavenly angels sing inside your mouth.

They do…

I swear!

Chili Garlic Shrimp Tacos

Even if you don’t believe me (and you really shouldn’t!), you should absolutely try these tacos.

Because in that respect, I’m being totally honest.

These things are so delicious that even my super picky teenager said “You should totally make these again”.

And in teen speak, that basically means they are the best thing since sliced bread.

Here’s the recipe:
