Plantain Tacos with Shrimp (Paleo and FODMAP) 1 of 2

Sometimes a night calls for tacos. You can probably guess how excited I was to find a recipe for taco shells that fit the Paleo and FODMAP diets (what I’m eating now on my journey to health). Here is a recipe that will knock your Paleo socks off: plantain tacos with shrimp. It’s a recipe that can be filled in many ways (stay tuned for another filling idea in my next post, you’ll get to use today’s leftover taco shells!). So easy to make, healthy and delicious—I just fell in love with plantains after eating this.
