    It was awesome! Loved the sauce, loved the shrimp. The men in my family loved it. I had to double the recipe because they can eat and it’s all gone! So good, we will definitely be having this again. Great for a week night meal. Quick and easy.

    It was delicious!! I didn’t use lime zest or fresh jalapeños(I used a can of green chilies). It still turned out very good but I think next time I’ll get fresh for that fresh kick. I put half an avocado in the sauce and also cut up slices for the tacos. I didn’t mind that I had extra sauce because I loved it on the cabbage on it’s own, even after all the shrimp and tortillas were gone!😋

    It turned out great. The shrimp was very tasty. I substituted parsley for cilantro since that was what I had. I opted not to make a sauce, instead I added the parsley, lime, sour cream, olive oil and ground peppercorn to the cabbage. I
