This recipe via favorite family recipes blog, is amazing, and pretty healthy.  The best part?  It took like 15 minutes to make.  I just added some Lipton Spanish Rice and it was a meal.

I added tomatoes, since tomatoes make everything taste better, but it's up to your tastes!  I love all tacos, but these are a winner, and a perfect weekday meal.
Shrimp Tacos  

4 cups shredded green cabbage
3 Tbsp Lime Juice
1 1/2 Tbsp dried oregano
-Toss and season with salt.

Cilantro dressing:
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 avocado
1/2 cup cilantro
3 Tbsp lime juice
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
-Mix thoroughly in a blender adding a little water if needed.

1 pound shrimp
pinch of sugar
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
-Peel shrimp, pat it dry, season with salt, pepper, and sugar. Heat oil over high heat and add shrimp. Cook until shrimp are curled and pink.

Layer the sauce, shrimp, and cabbage in a warm corn tortilla. Top with cotija (or feta) cheese, and chopped tomatoes. 

Have a great Monday, and a good week!
