Cilantro Lime Shrimp

Cilantro Lime Shrimp are amazingly flavorful, try it served as tacos with pineapple salsa and zesty slaw features tender, flavorful shrimp with toasty tortillas with a bright, fruity salsa and crunchy slaw on top! These tacos offer the perfect balance of tangy, savory, and fresh elements, making them the perfect tasty meal!

Why This Recipe Works

Taco Tuesday Winner: Taco Tuesday is one of my favorite times to make a weeknight dinner fun and special! What better way to celebrate taco Tuesday than with some cilantro lime shrimp tacos, topped with a homemade pineapple salsa and zesty slaw?! Everything about these tacos screams flavor, and the balance of flavors is irresistible. The whole family will definitely love them!

Better-for-you Goodness: These tacos are a balanced and good-for-you option which is much needed, especially as we head out of winter! Shrimp are low in fat and high in protein. And the salsa and slaw that goes on here are both light and fresh and packed with highly nutritious ingredients!
