Recipes Tips

If you want to add some extra flavor to your shrimp, try marinating them in the spice mixture for 30 minutes before cooking. You can also add some diced avocado or a squeeze of fresh lime juice to your tacos for added flavor.

When warming your tortillas, make sure to wrap them in a damp paper towel and microwave them for 10-15 seconds. This will help keep them soft and pliable.

If you're looking for a healthier alternative to Greek yogurt, you can use sour cream or a dairy-free alternative like coconut cream.
