I usually make most of our meals from scratch, but sometimes I just don’t have the time. I scrounged around in the freezer and found a box of pre-cooked popcorn shrimp. Then I took a gander around the SeaPak website and came across this contest-winning recipe for great fiesta shrimp tacos. I had everything on hand except an avocado, so I made a quick trip to the grocery store and I was set.

Fiesta Shrimp Tacos

These Fiesta shrimp tacos y were really, really good. If you don’t have shrimp, you could substitute chicken strips, fried clams, or fish or chicken nuggets. The crunchy slaw, creamy avocado, fresh lime and a tangy sauce really went well with the crispy fried shrimp.
