Instructions
To make the salsa
  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Set aside.

To make the shrimp
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside.

  2. Place the shrimp, salt, pepper, taco seasoning, and lime juice in a large zip top bag. Close the bag and shake until all shrimp are covered in seasoning.

  3. Place the seasoned shrimp on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, or until shrimp are just cooked through.

To assemble the tacos

  2. Fill the tortillas with shrimp and salsa, as well as whatever other toppings you'd like.
