Jalapeno Maple Lime Shrimp Tacos

Can you ever have too many shrimp taco combinations?  This one hits all the right notes with the symphony of sweet, tangy, heat, and spice.  The shrimp are tender, juicy, and soak up the sauce.  I bet you can’t eat just one…………but honestly, who has ever been able to do that?
