Grilled Shrimp Tacos with Desert Blossom Salsa INSTRUCTIONS

1. In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the salsa. Chill in the fridge until ready to serve.

2. Preheat grill to medium high heat.

3. In a large bowl, combine shrimp marinade ingredients. Add the shrimp and toss to combine. Let shrimp marinate while grill is heating. The citrus from your lime juice will cook the shrimp if it marinates too long.

4. Skewer shrimp. Grill 2-3 minutes per side or until shrimp are not translucent – pink and cooked through. Feel free to cook in a skillet if you don't have a grill.

5. Warm tortillas in a skillet with a little bit of butter – we cannot stress this enough. It is the most important step for next level tacos.

6. Assemble tacos by placing some lettuce or cabbage, warm shrimp, top with salsa and favorite toppings.
