1. Hawaiian Shrimp Street Tacos

This recipe is inspired by Tre, one of our local restaurants. One night my yoga friends and I were at Tre, hanging out on their beautiful patio having a drink after yoga and some of us were having a little bite to eat as well. My friend Kay ordered the Caribbean Shrimp Street Tacos and she was just delighted when she tasted them. She loved how the shrimp was slightly shredded … and me, I was mentally taking notes as she talked about her dining experience. Fortunate for me, she couldn’t eat all the tacos they brought her, so I got to TASTE them too … and yeah, I figured out a way I could make this marvelous creation at home, or at least something tangentially similar.
