Low Carb Spicy Shrimp Tacos

When you bring the flavor, you won’t ever miss the tortilla.

Forget the notion that you need a tortilla to make a delicious taco. Completely unnecessary when you use the right ingredients. This recipe comes together in 30 minutes but tastes like restaurant quality.

This is such a great option that is completely filling and packed with all the good toppings. I decided to add in some corn to the pico de gallo and it seriously leveled it up. Also necessary is the lime crema to lend that creamy texture! And the cherry on top is the Everything Bagel seasoning which pairs up perfectly with the tacos.
