HOW TO MAKE PERFECT SHRIMP

Making delicious shrimp is two-fold, first how you season it and second how you cook it! This recipe has a flavorful blackened seasoning mix and below I’m sharing some tips for cooking perfect shrimp.

COOKING TIPS:
As shrimp cooks it turns from a blueish grey color to a whitish pink color. It cook SUPER quick – only about 2-3 minutes per side – so make sure you are watching it!
Shrimp will curl up a bit as it cooks, into a “C” shape. If it curls up more than that into an “O” shape it is probably overcooked.
To make your life easier, buy shrimp that is already peeled and deveined so you don’t have to do this tedious, time consuming step.
If you use frozen shrimp, make sure it is completely thawed before cooking.

WHY SWEET PEPPER SLAW IS PERFECT IN THESE TACOS

This sweet pepper slaw is made with Divine Flavor Tribelli Sweet Peppers that are full of flavor and a hint of sweetness. They come in red, orange and yellow and once you add in the green apple and red onion the slaw makes the perfect rainbow! But, it’s not only beautiful, it’s also delicious! With the mild heat of the blackened shrimp the slaw pairs perfectly and gives the tacos a nice, refreshing crunch!
