    I thought this was just okay, nothing spectacular like I had expected. Not enough flavor for me, so I won't be making again. I'll stick with seviche-style shrimp and avacado tacos.

    This is such a wonderful recipe! The flavors are amazing! We are going to have it for at least our fifth time tonight - don't miss this one!

    ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I wasn't sure if my family would like these as tacos in our house are usually of the ground beef version. These disappeared and with every bite a comment was made about how great the flavor was. I made a few variations during preparation. I used 1/2 of a lg white onion (seemed plenty). Instead of 1/4 c. vegetable oil, I used about a tablespoon or so of olive oil and used flour tortillas instead of corn. This was amazing by itself, but would also be great with a pineapple or mango salsa!

    We made this last night. It was so good!! We are looking forward to the leftover for lunch. We have queso fresco and chili sauce at home, so added that to the tacos. So easy, will definitely make again!

    My husband and I had high,high hopes for this recipe given the reviews, and it was very, very good...but I do feel like it was missing something - not much, just a little something. I think maybe we just needed some lettuce and tomato on it, or maybe some avocado - anyways, we'll make again, and maybe try some different garnishes. We'll definitely make again.

    My boyfriend and I made this dish last night, and we have enough leftovers to eat probably twice more. We loved it! Didn't change up the recipe at all, but I did slice up an avocado and make some pico de gallo to accompany the tacos. Highly recommend - very flavorful, will make again!

    We make this several times a year and has become quite a favorite dish in our home!! Simple but delicious!

    this was yummy! I didn't have chilis, so I added chili powder & oregano to the onions as they sauteed,(very fragrant!) along with some chopped red bell pepper. I used smaller, whole shrimp and lemon juice instead of lime. Be sure to use the freshest possible tortillas, and double up, as suggested! I served this with 1 cup cooked quinoa mixed with a can of rinsed black beans, 1 tsp cumin, 1/3 cup salsa and freshly ground pepper & salt to taste.

    These were delicious and so easy!! I was worried that without a sauce they might be bland but there were incredibly flavorful. I will make them again when I have guests over.
