Featuring a symphony of bright, fresh ingredients, this wonderful recipe for Shrimp Tacos With Cabbage and Lime from the folks at Shutterbean is inspired by the flavors of Mexican, Tex-Mex, and Southwestern cuisine.
If you prefer these tacos to be less on the spicy side, just omit the cayenne pepper and substitute a milder sauce like salsa verde or use a little of your favorite mellow salsa in place of the hot sauce.
For those who enjoy Tabasco but want a milder alternative, Tabasco Green Pepper Sauce is also good but lower in heat.
