Gulf Shrimp Tacos w/ Cilantro Crema & Slaw

Gulf Shrimp Tacos w/ Cilantro Crema & Slaw

We love it when our customers send us the recipes they make with our seafood, and we just had to share this shrimp taco recipe from Sea to Table customer Tara Keefe. Tara recommends using our Jumbo Easy Peel Wild Gulf Shrimp, but this recipe would work equally well with our pre-peeled Wild Gulf Shrimp.

Note: this recipe differs slightly from the photo above.
