Shrimp Tacos

These shrimp tacos are seasoned with cumin and chili powder and are topped with lots of fresh veggies like green and red cabbage, tomatoes, and avocado. I love adding in lots of lime flavors when I make shrimp tacos and accomplish this in two ways in this shrimp tacos recipe. Lime juice AND lime zest are used to make a delicious lime-yogurt sauce and I also squeeze more lime juice on top of the tacos as a finishing touch before eating!
