We all love things that are crispy and crunchy, but don’t always want (or have the tools) to in indulge in deep-fried foods. Here’s a workaround that’ll keep everyone satisfied on both ends: we’re dredging shrimp in cornstarch before giving them a light sizzle in the pan. Served with a snappy red cabbage slaw inside warm tortillas, these tacos pack plenty of crunch as you munch, plus lots of tangy favor, too!
