Who doesn’t love a shrimp taco? I certainly love tacos of any kind, and these were no exception. I used the shrimp frying recipe/method described in my friend Meaghan’s post here, which worked perfectly. It really does make a difference to batter the shrimp. I made my own slaw, very similar to the one I describe here, with chopped red cabbage, chilies, coriander, fish sauce, and a pinch of sugar. Topped it off with a little bit of lime mayo and some chopped spring onions, and corn tortillas. To me these reach near perfection — a great combination of salt, heat, crunch, and acid — and are somehow very refreshing for these incredibly hot evenings we’ve been having in London.
Greetings from sunny and hot Nova Scotia. I am playing catch up on a few posts I’ve had sitting in drafts for a few weeks now.
Ever since my visit to Toronto’s Grand Electric in May, I’ve been craving fish tacos again. I finally decided to give homemade ones a go, and I am so glad I did because these were easy to make and will become a new staple. I am hoping to recreate them here in Nova Scotia.
