shrimp tacos

We've eaten a lot of fish tacos lately so I decided to mix it up a bit and try shrimp tacos.  I have to say I'm a fan.  I wanted to make sure you could see the shrimp in the photo but I did load on some of my favorite jalapeno salsa and sour cream after the photo was taken.

shrimp tacos (food.com, 5 stars)
1 pound medium shrimp, shelled and deveined
2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons oil
1 ripe avocado, pitted, peeled and diced
12 taco shells (we used corn tortillas and whole wheat tortillas)
2 cups lettuce, shredded
salsa, sour cream, tomatillo sauce, etc.

In a medium bowl, combine shrimp, taco seasoning, garlic and 2 tablespoons lime juice; toss to coat.  Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.  Add shrimp mixture and cook and stir 2 to 4 minutes or until shrimps turn pink.  Remove shrimp from skillet; place on plate.
In a small bowl, toss avocado with remaining lime juice.  Spoon shrimp into taco shells.  Top with lettuce, avocado, salsa, sour cream, etc.
