Last week we had some friends over for dinner. As it was a Friday and we go meatless on Fridays, I thought I would try my hand at making shrimp tacos. Delicious! The shrimp were so buttery and delicious...I think (rather, I know) I could have eaten a lot more than just two tacos. Simple and delicious.
