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? :lol:
I wasn't even sure what a "go with" was... a side, a filling, a sauce :huh:

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

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

Coleslaw can be made with any flavor profile. :pig:

Corn and black bean salsa with diced red peppers, jalapeņo 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

This is almost exactly how I do seafood taco dinners. :yum: If I don't have lime juice to mix with the cabbage and Greek (or plain) yogurt for the taco topping, I'll use a little bit of rice wine vinegar instead. Just as good....almost. :smile:
