Next up in our month of Trader Joe’s hacks are these coconut shrimp tacos. Our friend Linsey made them for a girls’ dinner this winter, and they were so delicious. Bonus: “I can pretend we’re on a sunny beach somewhere,” she says, “instead of having yet another nor’easter.” Here’s how she does it…
Recipe: Coconut Shrimp Tacos
Makes 5 tacos
TJ Coconut Shrimp
TJ Shredded Green & Red Cabbage
TJ Green Goddess Salad Dressing
TJ Flour Tortillas
TJ Island Salsa (Linsey makes her own, but this one’s good!)
Bake the coconut shrimp according to instructions. Remove tails. Toss cabbage slaw with Green Goddess dressing. In a warmed tortilla, add two or three shrimp, a sprinkle of the dressed slaw and a scoop of salsa. If you’d like, you can also add two slices of avocado, a squeeze of lime and a few leaves of cilantro.
Thanks for the idea, Linsey! Have you ever tried these shrimp?
