“Mmmm,” “wow,” “amazing,” “delicious,” “so good,” “the bomb!”
Just a few of the adjectives my taste-testers, aka my family, used when eating these tacos. They were so flavorful, with the perfect balance of sweet, savory, and spicy. I love eating fresh meals like this to welcome the warmer spring and summer weather, don’t you?!
These tacos were a happy marriage of traditional tacos and a taste of the islands. Kind of reminds me of my husband and I—Latin boy meets girl from Hawaii…
Sorry, I have the tendency to make life analogies with food.
Anyway, it’s really hard to go wrong with these tacos when you look at the yum factor of each component. Let’s break it down:
You start off with a soft, homemade flour tortilla (recipe here.) These may be gluten-free, but it’s really difficult to taste a difference. They were waaaay more delicious than any regular store-bought tortillas I’ve ever eaten. To me, homemade is always better.
Add to that yummy tortilla some spicy grilled shrimp that have spent some time marinating in a Sriracha-spiced lime and coconut milk mixture. Oh, yeah!
And then to top it all off, you cover it with a yummy tropical salsa, containing sweet mango, juicy pineapple, ripe avocado, and crunchy bell pepper, among other things.
You can also choose to spice it up with some minced jalapeño, if you can handle the heat, but we usually leave it out for the sake of our kiddos.
These grilled shrimp were delish on their own. I bet they would also be wonderful on a bed of cilantro rice! I’ll have to work on that recipe, haha!
All together it’s like a flavor bomb in your mouth, people! Seriously.. but you don’t have to take my word for it, try them yourselves!
