Shrimp tacos

Everyone knows I do not cook with recipes so it’s always difficult to put one together.

So just season your shrimp with garlic and other herbs. Salt if you wish. Sauté in EVOO about 3 min per side. Either roast asparagus in oven or sauté on top of stove. Drizzle with EVOO and lightly season with garlic, cayenne pepper and fresh lemon juice. U used corn tortilla shells. Top with cilantro or salsa if you prefer.

Hints:
*Sauté the shrimp in garlic EVOO
*Add milk or cream to grits

*Let set for a few minutes until grits are stiff

*Let dish set for 10 minutes
