Do you love fish tacos? If you do, you might want to try the shellfish version of the fish taco… the shrimp taco. It's shrimp inside a taco shell with some chipotle mayonnaise sauce. If you want to make this, watch the video recipe for all the details on this shrimp taco with chipotle mayo.
We love this taco so much that we begged the Chef Ramos at Olé to make it and share it with you all. Fried shrimp is dressed up with a spicy chipotle mayo & smooth cilantro pesto to make this a quick bite that is hard to forget. Add a little crisp shredded cabbage and a warm tortilla and you have one taco that will have your mouth dancing the salsa!
