Cajun Shrimp Tacos

Shrimp Tacos is one of my favorites, but with the mix of Cajun oh my it’s even better. Cajun shrimp tacos sound really good for me right now.  My husband and I we love spicy food, even our kids enjoy eating spicy food as well.  However, I always make sure that it’s not too spicy for our little daughter.  As you all know our family is a big shrimp eater.  Each time I make shrimp I tried to create different recipes for my husband and kids.  Although, sometimes it’s costly, it’s worth it because of how delicious shrimp is.

Cajun shrimp tacos are easy to make and it’s full of flavor as well.  You can make this recipe however you want, even add some slice of mango to incorporate the avocado. This meal is perfect to be added to your weekly meal planning, especially it’s light and full of protein as well.  Using wheat tacos for this recipe would be great as well if you want this to be healthier.
