These tacos are amazing! I was looking for a recipe similar to Chuy's shrimp tacos, but I actually like this even better. I leave the olive oil out of the yogurt. Also, I keep the tomatoes and avacados separate from the salsa-- they make it mushy if you have leftovers.

This was awesome!! I followed the recipe exactly, and it turned out perfectly. I would say there is a little more prep involved, because there was a lot of stuff to cut up, but well worth it. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!
