Two-Way Shrimp Taco

This month the...

is making Tacos.

Tacos are one of my favorite food.  As with most things in the kitchen, possibilities are only limited by the cooks imagination.  I've made many varieties recently.

I think this one might just be my future favorite.

This taco had a nice contrast of texture and temperature.  Between the cooked and the raw.  Also wonderful balance of creamy and crunchy.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Whole lot of flavors and textures going on here -- UMAMI!

  2. I adore tacos and could eat these sort for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Love the flavors going on!! OX

  3. This is creative, yet still approachable. I love the dill and the smoked salt additions and I could a few to ten of these.

  4. Well that's definitely the ultimate shrimp taco. Love both takes on shrimp here. Very well executed, Laz!

  5. Amazing flavors and textures going on, I want one :-)

  6. I would like the texture of the fried shrimp for a bit of crunch! Looks great, Laz.
