Made these last night for dinner when meeting my daughter's boyfriend the first time. Good flavors, I left out the tomato from the tacos and made Pico de Gallo to add later, which every one did. I will make this again, but use fresh pinapple and mango in the salsa, and more garlic in the taco. I also don't feel the cheese is needed, so didn't even offer it, no one asked for it!

My daughter and I made this recipe several times. It's one of our favourite camping recipes. Full of flavor. I like large shrimp instead of medium, but other than that I wouldn't change a thing. It has turn into a tradition.

We prepared these for our Cinco de Mayo dinner. I felt that they needed a little kick and added a few dashes of cayenne pepper to the salsa and some diced jalapenos with the onions, peppers and shrimp. Overall, an easy meal for a weeknight.
