We made rice bowls with the ingredients instead of tacos. Very tasty, love the chimichurri sauce.

Very quick to make and the chimichurri sauce was sooooo goooood. Next time I might just use romaine hearts as taco holders and make the original recipe. The zucchini was good but I had to separate them to make them into romaine tacos.

I don't know what it is about this recipe that I don't care for. The salsa was too basic and there wasn't enough spice on the shrimp. Plus whenever I took a bite, I got a whiff of something not as pleasant which made eating it even worse. Won't be making this again.

So good! Super quick meal for the end of the week which was much appreciated! I threw in the extra roasted bell pepper from the other night with the salsa too, it was really good all together.
