Shrimp Lettuce Cup Tacos with Pineapple Pico and Chipotle Lime Coleslaw

It’s taco Tuesday, folks! Let’s Celebrate!

I recently went to TJ’s Seafood and had their fish tacos in lettuce wraps and decided to recreate them for you in my own kitchen. I know its still winter and these tacos are rather summery, but its always a good time for a fish taco in my book. 

This recipe is SO fresh and absolutely delicious. They are also so easy to whip up so it really is a perfect weeknight meal. Enjoy!
