Shrimp Tacos

I am making shrimp tacos tonight for dinner. What would be a good "go with"? Any and all suggestions will be appreciated.

a fine shredded coleslaw with a bit of Old Bay seasoning in the dressing.

How did you know that?
I wasn't even sure what a "go with" was... a side, a filling, a sauce

I like coleslaw in a fish or shrimp taco, I also think it's good as a side.

I think in the shrimp taco some fine diced tomato, onion and green or jalapeño chilies tossed lightly with the shrimp would be good.

Coleslaw can be made with any flavor profile.

In that case may I suggest some fava beans and a nice chianti?

Corn and black bean salsa with diced red peppers, jalapeño and lime juice would make a nice side. I like light dressings with Mexican seafood dishes, like sour cream or Greek yogurt mixed with chopped cilantro, lime juice, salt and a little sugar to balance the lime. A little cabbage or cole slaw, as PF suggested, would give it a nice crunch.

The slaw I like to use for Fish Tacos is

2 cups thin sliced cabbage
pinch of salt
1 Tablespoon chopped cilantro
1/2 Tablespoon chopped jalapeno
3 Tablespoons Mexican cream
Mix and put in refrigerator 1 hour
