Lemony Herb & Garlic Shrimp (tacos)

I dont know how else to say it, this shrimp is SUPER fresh!!

The combination of lemon, garlic, basil, mint and chives is sure to make you feel like its summer. I love to make this whenever I need a quick and easy meal that literally takes under 20 minutes to throw together!

I've served this shrimp with steamed asparagus, delicious salads or my favorite way - in tacos! I hope you enjoy :)
