Lime, avocado, and cilantro are familiar ingredients in a taco, bringing tartness, creaminess, and herby overtones, respectively. You don’t expect sweetness inside a tortilla, however, which we snuck in with these honey-coated shrimp. But what a pleasant surprise the sticky stuff is: it leaves the filling dripping with succulent juices that are boosted by citrus and a smidge of optional chili heat.
