Shrimp Tacos

When I put Shrimp Tacos on the meal plan for this week I looked through the other blogs and realized, I hadn't dedicated an entire post to them yet. This is strange because Shrimp Tacos are probably the one thing we make once a month. It's a Real Simple recipe that I haven't altered very much but just because I'm using a recipe doesn't mean you should get crazy on me and ask me to measure.
It's a healthy easy recipe that is full of flavor. All those things combine to make it a family favorite.

1. Saute the shrimp until pink with salt and pepper.

2. In a bowl mix about 1/3 a bag of cole slaw mix, a dollop of fat free sour cream, the juice of one orange and one lime, 1 jalapeno diced up fine, and a bit of corn. I've used canned and fresh corn in the recipe and I like fresh corn best because it's crunchier but canned corn is fine, be sure to rinse it off and try to pat it dry. You probably don't need a whole can either.

3. You're done! Best Recipe ever right?!

I serve the shrimp and citrus slaw with warmed tortilla shells but we assemble at the table. It's so good. It's a little summer-y for november but Shrimp were on sale this week for $5.99 a pound so it can't be too strange.
Here is the nutrition as provided by Real Simple. I don't think they used fat free sour cream so here is a link to mine.
