We eat tacos once a week especially on Taco Tuesday and even Cinco de Mayo but having the same ol’ beef tacos can get boring sometimes. A great way to change it up is swapping the beef for chicken, pork or shrimp.

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat (around 375 degrees). Lay out a large piece of aluminum foil and fold in half. Fold up edges to create a pouch in the middle. Place shrimp in the middle and drizzle with olive oil and half of the lime juice. Sprinkle on top of the shrimp half of the seasonings; cumin, garlic powder, chili powder, and salt and pepper to taste.
