How about spending just 25 minutes in kitchen to serve a family of four a delicious dinner like these Shrimp Tacos? I would say, "bring it on!" If you think the same, then let's make some shrimp tacos today!!

I'm in mood of sharing Spanish a.k.a. Mexican Food whole week. These shrimp tacos are second recipe of the week. Earlier you enjoyed Mojo Chicken.

Anyways, I'm still happy to see approaching Spring/Summers. Also, when life gives you too much sunshine, you..... ??..... click pictures without artificial light!!! lol! What were you thinking?!
