Oh my gosh, ya’ll. THESE TACOS. I am at a total loss for words to describe the insane deliciousness of these puppies. I’m talking life-changing tacos. Is that possible? It totally is. I mean, texture and flavor HEAVEN… *hears angels singing* This might actually be the most perfect recipe to ever come out of our kitchen [the sous chef was pretty adamant this was top 3 things he’s ever eaten… so there’s that].
First of all, it’s really hard to go wrong with crispy shrimp, so you know we’re off to a good start. And there’s a delicious crunchy cabbage slaw, all covered in a MAGICAL sauce, topped with avocado, cilantro, green onions — every. little. fixing. Crunchy, creamy, dreamy. Beautifully messy delicious little flavor bombs is what these are.
Now, you know I can’t hardly wait to start blab about this sauce. It is everything #Suuuuurioussaucegoals. And there’s one little secret ingredient that you MUST use. No substitutes, no replacements. Trust me here! I wouldn’t steer you wrong. It’s called ‘Spicy Chili Crisp‘, and it literally makes this sauce what it is. So so so so so good. Did I mention it’s so good? I don’t even know if I can exist without this sauce in my life and have ZERO understanding of how I made it 29 years without it. But I can rest easy now [and so can you!], knowing that it’s only a spoonful away. WHEW.
So I know this is a super summery recipe — and I’m serving it up here at a measly 15 degrees outside in January [well, we ate inside, to be exact] — but it was so good I couldn’t even stand the idea of not sharing this STAT. And I don’t know whether these babies call for sake, coronas, margaritas, or my old friend wine, but I do know that you can’t go wrong with any of those [pretty much ever]. So without further ado, I bring you mind-blowing tacos.
