Shrimp Tacos

Corn or Flour

seems to be the big question when it comes to tacos.

It’s almost as big of a debate as two popular soda companies that seem to go head to head at least once a year.

In our house it’s a spit decision.

How about at your house? Is is a big debate or is it unanimous.

I like flour tortillas on the crisp side, so I heat them over the burner until the edges are well….charred. Charred… in a good way.

Well one thing that was unanimous was that these should be made more often!

I just love that shrimp is readily available already cooked. I am always picking up a bag with many idea in mind at how easy it will be to serve dinner with this time saver….and I can’t help it I LOVE shrimp.

These tacos will be showing up on many nights in our house to come… and easy just how I like mid week meals. Perfect for lunch too, you won’t tell if I have them for lunch and then pretend I need to eat twice as many for dinner, since I “skipped” lunch when it’s time for dinner will you?

Dinner doesn’t seem to get on the table any faster than this!

Having key ingredients on hand makes for easy weeknight meals, some days just seem to fly by and before I now it it’s dinner time, especially since school has already started here and it’s still so hot outside. These would be perfect for al fresco eating by the pool….and that is exactly where I will have to serve them!

    We all go back and forth between flour and corn. I love a fresh flour tortilla, but fried corn ones are SO GOOD!! I have a feeling these tacos are perfect either way.

    So how funny is this…if I am eating street tacos I like corn tortillas. If I am having regular tacos, I love flour.

    I love shrimp tacos! And I’m with ya – I just love shrimp. Period.
    These look delicious – I’ve never had my tortilla charred like that. I must try sometime!!!

    Corn or Flour – there is usually no debate in our house. My husband just goes with what is served, even though he does prefer corn. So do I. But most of the time it’s whatever is easily available. Love tacos made with seafood, I often make it with salmon,white fish or shrimp – nice and easy dinner for a weeknight. Beautiful blend of flavors here. Pinned!

    I like flour and he likes wheat so we always have both. Why? Rather than compromise neither gives in. I need to talk with Julia and get my husband trained up.

    Corn all the way since we don’t eat wheat. I am a big fan of shrimp tacos – so easy to whip up for a quick, yummy dinner!

    Flour and corn are split in our home :) both have their perks to me. These tacos look so so tasty, my husband will enjoy them!
