Easy, bright, bursting with flavor and healthy is what I crave on the weekends. Shrimp tacos are one of the easiest meals I have in my arsenal for lazy weekends.
Weekends should be lazy, breezy and delish don’t you think? A quick marinade and even quicker relish are prepped. Sauté your shrimp, warm a stack of tortillas and your set. Top with relish and enjoy!

- 2 tsp cumin
