Shrimp_Taco_Bites_1   Shrimp Taco Bites are little pieces of appetizer heaven. They are perfect finger-foods for any holiday party or football Sunday!

   The shrimp are soaked in my favorite Honey Lime Shrimp marinade, then quickly pan fried. Place the shrimp on a scoop tortilla chip with some sour cream and guacamole. Easy peasy and so delicious. Everyone will love these! 😀
