I found this recipe in a magazine and I will surely be trying it soon. I love shrimp to death and the idea of having it in tacos is really great.

How to Make Sweet and Hot Shrimp Tacos


  1. Place cherries,jalapeno,ginger and honey in a mini chopper or blender along with 1/4 cup water. Blend until smooth (there may be very small bits of cherry).
  2. Season shrimp with salt. Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add oil and shrimp and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, turning occasionally, until shrimp are pink on the outside but not cooked through. Reduce heat to medium and carefully add cherry mixture. Simmer for about 2 minutes, until sauce reduces slightly and shrimp are cooked through.
  3. Preheat an oven or toaster oven to 400 and warm taco shells for 2 minutes. Spoon 3 shrimp and 1 tbsp cherry sauce into each taco and top with 2 tsp each radicchio and carrots. Garnish with cilantro. Serve immediately.
