Color Collection: Fun Food

How pretty are these tacos?  I found this on Pinterest, and while I’d use something like chicken before shrimp, I wanted to share this awesome recipe from Tartine and Apron Strings.

Here’s what you’ll need to recreate the delish dish:

Honey Lime Tequila Shrimp Tacos with Avocado, Purple Slaw & Chipotle Crema

• For the honey lime tequila shrimp tacos •
2 pounds (454 g) raw shrimps, peeled and deveined
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt

1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle (optional)
