Shrimp Tacos with Cabbage Slaw

This recipe from Well Plated is as delicious as it looks. Using shrimp as a protein source makes this meal really quick to make, perfect for busy weeknights. We also used pre-shredded slaw for added convenience. 

To make, you'll season shrimp and let sit while you prepare the sauce. The simple sauce is made by combining the ingredients in a food processor, then tossing with cabbage. You'll saute the seasoned shrimp in a pan with oil which only takes about 4 minutes, then assemble tacos with warm tor tortillas, slaw, and optional additional toppings. Yum!
