BBQ Shrimp Tacos

I had a blast whipping up my shrimp taco recipe and some of my favorite ‘Rush Hour Recipes’ on WAFB 9 News Noon show this week.  With just a few ingredients and 30 minutes you can really put a healthy meal on the table fast! The classic flavor combination of the BBQ Shrimp Shrimp Tacos from my trim&TERRIFIC KITCHEN 101: Secrets to Cooking Confidence cookbook, is hard to beat and will surely soon be a family favorite. This is my go-to recipe as I always keep shrimp in my freezer. My shrimp guy comes in a pickup truck with an ice chest of fresh shrimp-he knows to stop by regularly. Use corn tortillas to make this recipe gluten free. And you will want to keep the pantry friendly ingredients of Marvelous Marinara Sauce on hand at all times for a simple yet superb family dinner is a flash!
