Zesty Shrimp Tacos

Spicy pan grilled shrimp tacos loaded with a zest honey cilantro lime slaw and topped with a creamy sriracha sauce. These tacos are spicy, sweet, zesty and bursting with flavor!Shrimp tacos have become a weeknight favorite.

They’re super quick and easy to make, present very well and will make you look like a pro!This recipe is inspired by my popular spicy shrimp and avocado salsa tacos. Instead of an avocado salad, we’re switching things up by using a honey cilantro lime slaw and topping the tacos off with a creamy sriracha sauce. The spice from the shrimp paired with the crunch and sweet hint of honey from the slaw and the creamy sriracha sauce will make your mouth sing.

The combo is a perfect combo of sweet, zesty, crunchy, spicy and creamy!!

These tacos are quick, simple, and seriously satisfying.
