Yum! Yum! Yum! I've never purchased tomatillos, but this turned out amazing! I halved the amount of jalapeno, and it still had a little kick to it. The shrimp was very good, but the avocado tomatillo salsa was delicious! We will definitely make this one over and over again. Read More

This recipe is quick and easy. I really liked the flavors in the tomatillo salsa. My husband was a huge fan and asked me to make again. The only thing I added was a little sour cream on top of our tacos. Read More

Yummmm! This was easy and tasty. Only modifications I made were to add garlic powder, pepper and onion powder to shrimp seasoning. I also halved the salt in both the shrimp and salsa but that’s just my own preference. Added a little lime into salsa. Crisped tortillas. My roommate loved it. Will make again. Read More
