This southern California classic couldn't be any easier to make because our salsa verde is packed with fabulous flavor.  Tangy tomatillo, fresh jalapeño, onion, garlic and cilantro are perfectly blended in our salsa and add all of the flavor to this dish.  Use it as a quick marinade for the shrimp and then again as a topping.   Shredded carrots and cabbage add sweetness and crunch for the perfect shrimp taco.
