This dish was delicious, however, the weights and measures are OFF, and the ordering of the ingredients makes it difficult to prepare. The shrimp, I am sure should be 1 lb (not 4oz). I used 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper and it was still too hot....let alone 1/2 Tablespoons as it calls for. I used 1/4 teaspoon dill weed, rather than 1/4 ounce, and I used 1/4 teaspoon cumin in the white sauce rather than 1/4 Tablespoon, and it was plenty. I did not think I would like this, based on the smells, but It was Wonderful. I mixed the cabbage with the white sauce and used it as a "slaw" on the shrimp taco's and all the flavors together just work. I liked this so well I re-wrote the whole recipe, putting ingredients in order (all the white sauce ingredients together and all the saute ingredients together)to make it easier to prepare.

This dish was delicious. I almost went for the sour cream but opted for the plain yogurt. I used Greek yogurt and a fraction of the Mayo. I also forgot the cilantro but it turned out so good. I have an Asian friend who often snubs his nose to healthier dishes and he love this; even the yogurt/may sauce. I definitely will make this again,,,,loved the kick of the recipe.

Excellent taste and satisfied my hunger. Next time I may use lowfat sour cream instead of the yogurt/mayo. Even my husband liked it.

The flavor of the shrimp are spicy and delicious. Think about doing a Po Boy as well.

Hit the spot! I made a couple of changes due to preferences and not having all the ingredients. I had it in a half tortilla, so I had a shrimp burrito. my salsa was salsa fresca and my yogurt was greek. Fantastic meal and low calorie. Absolutely enjoyed it. Thank you for the recipe

When preparing the meal, I was concerned about the flavor of the shrimp. However, when it was all put together (including the cabbage) it was great! My wife, who needs to GAIN weight, ate THREE of them.

Never made shrimp tacos before, but they were great! I didn't put in all the cumin called for, but they were great!
