 Salsa Verde Shrimp Taco

Salsa Verde Shrimp Taco

 This signature taco is made with pan-seared shrimp topped with salsa verde, avocado, melted cheese, creamy chipotle sauce, cilantro & onion mix, and cabbage. Served on a warm flour tortilla with a slice of lime.

The shrimp are slightly under cooked but have great flavor with the char and cooked cilantro, and lime

The Tortilla is slightly over cooked and hard around the edges. 

The chipotle sauce is very for wide and has a nice amount of smoke flavor with subtle spice not at the back. 

The avocado is ripe and accompanys this very well and cuts the smokey note down and brings a buttery note that is very present.  

The cheese is not even notasable and can not taste it at all.  

 

   The only fault I have is that the sauce is over powering through everything

 


This Limited item is made with Panko-crusted crispy shrimp topped with sweet chile aioli, cabbage, cilantro/onion and salsa verde served on warm stone-ground corn tortillas and garnished with lime.

The shrimp are a little much on the crust and does not taste or look like panko. 

The sweet chili aioli is not sweet in any way and really creamy.  

The salsa verde does help cut the richness of the crust and aioli along with being a needed acidity
