Shrimp Tacos with Roasted Corn Slaw - Lady Behind The CurtainThe shrimp is marinated in a mixture of vinegar, brown sugar, and chipotle for a spicy sweet and sour flavor.  On top is a tangy coleslaw with smokey corn.

I also love my Beer Batter Fish Tacos and what Mexican inspired meal would be complete without a great salsa recipe like my The Best and Easiest Salsa.
