Chili Lime Shrimp Tacos

Some nights, I just don’t feel like spending so much time in the kitchen. Especially since it’s been so hot lately… But this shrimp taco recipe came to a rescue one night; a quick and fast recipe that also tastes so good!

I was so glad when I found prawns in the freezer and a lot of fresh limes in the fridge that I’d completely forgotten about! Then I immediately thought of chili lime shrimp, which is one of my favorites!

And of course, chili lime shrimp in warm soft tortilla is pretty awesome. I topped it with fresh tomatoes, cheese, and some sliced jalapenos.
