Reviews for California Shrimp Tacos with Corn Salsa
"Really, really good! Easy and very flavorful."
"Not a keeper, but ok."
"Really liked the corn salsa and guac. Didn't like the chili powder/cajun seasoning on the shrimp, but it could have been the brand of chili powder I used. Tried again using Old El Paso taco seasoning from a package and cooked the shrimp in 1 tbsp. canola oil. We really loved the tacos this way and will definitely make again! This recipe is so easy and the salsa and guac can be made ahead of time."
"This was awesome!!! Pleasantly surprised. I didn't use cilantro nor the chili powder as kids don't like spicy and hubby hates cilantro. It was delicious!!"
"Loved it. I used this recipe for just veggie tacos when I ran out of shrimp."
"Would not change a thing. This recipe is delicious. Taste just like the shrimp tacos I order out for at half the price!"
"Great recipe, quick and easy"
"I have made this recipe several times. It is a favorite in my household now. So simple and very high on flavor."
"I made this tonight but used more shrimp and soft shells. My hubby and I both loved it and he even went back for seconds!"
