SARASOTA (WWSB) - Shrimp & Andouille Corn Tacos

Chef Larry Barrett, Simply Gourmet Caterers

I love tacos! Start with a good corn or flour tortilla and you’ve got the foundation for a fantastic dinner or Super Bowl party. These tacos are my favorite ~ the smokey and crunchy andouille sausage is the perfect foil for the tender juicy shrimp. I serve these tacos with a simple purple/green cabbage slaw with little mandarin orange segments~gives them a nice crunch. Of course, a bit a salsa is mandatory.
