California Shrimp Tacos with Corn Salsa Recipe

After trying fish tacos, I fell in love. I wanted to recreate them at home and though Why not use shrimp? It's an affordable healthy way to feed my seafood-loving family. —Kayla Peters, Cecilia, Kentucky

"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!!"
