Grilled Shrimp Taco

One of the easiest recipe to make if all ingredients are available,Just unfreeze shrimp while you chop vegetables and make spice mix.Then grill defrosted shrimp and tortillas and mix shrimp with spice mix when its hot and serve tortillas with sour cream.
Sit in table with grilled tortillas in a plate, grilled shrimp with spice mix in a bowl , chopped vegetables in another bowl and sour cream with a spoon.
Switch on your favourite show and layer your tortillas as you wish and sprinkle some more spice mix and lime juice on top and have a bite relaxedly,hmmm....mmmmhhh.....hopefully your kids are not shouting and getting your attention at this time.In that case just stuff everything in your mouth and go and watch over your kids.
Mostly the latter happens to me all time,assuming its the same for everyone too.So yay motherhood.
