These shrimp tacos were super tasty and soo easy. I found the recipe here. We really liked it with the mango salsa and guacamole, YUM!

Honey-Butter Mexican Shrimp Tacos

•1 Tbsp. Cumin

•-You can also use Mexican seasoning to substitute.
•1 tsp. Salt
•Fresh Ground Pepper

Clean and de-vein shrimp and cut into 3 pieces each (depending on how large they are). Sauté in hot butter until cooked through (just a few minutes). Add rest of ingredients.
Cook just before serving. Have fresh tortillas, and a platter of condiments ready.
