Kristens Shrimp Tacos
Here is a great recipe for those of you that have made resolutions to eat a little healthier.  We first had these shrimp tacos when we used to live in California by my cousins Cory and Kristen.  They always blew us away with their amazing culinary skills.  This recipe is a favorite from them that we make regularly!

    These were really good! Except I didn’t care for the oregano so next time I will just leave it out of the cabbage. Goes nice with cilantro rice. Thanks for the recipe!
