Cajun Shrimp Tacos

I hereby declare you no longer a seafood snob. For 24 years of my life when someone said, want to go to a seafood restaurant? My reply followed with hell no- pass the thick juicy steak. Please and thank you!

So I have been eating seafood for 2 years now. I am still snobby and there are some things I am still an absolute no to. I am willing to try new things though. When we went to Florida last year, I tried coconut encrusted red snapper– delicious! This year in Florida, I ordered a crack conch sandwich. It was amazing! I now eat fish fresh from the ocean- and still smother my crab legs in butter. You can’t have it all.

In our home, my Fiancé got me eating seafood. First- was fish tacos. Don’t you worry- our fish tacos will appear on this blog because my dear they are the bomb. This time, we tried Cajun shrimp tacos. So flavorful and topped with the goods – seconds couldn’t be passed up!

Ryan is the true seafood cook in this house, as I said I have only been on the seafood for 2 years and still learning. Check out his recipe for Cajun shrimp below- you will love them!!
