Catalina Shrimp Tacos with Cotija Cheese

Catalina Shrimp Tacos with Cotija Cheese

Guest Favorite A fresh take on the street taco, corn tortillas are filled with juicy shrimp sautéed in a delicious chimichurri sauce then topped with lime-infused corn and Cotija cheese for a punch of flavor.

Medium Instructions

1.Preheat oven to 250°F. Loosely wrap corn tortillas in foil leaving an opening to vent and place in oven for 10-15 min. to warm (this will keep the tortillas from becoming soggy).
