I had seen the Baja Shrimp taco before when I glanced over the menu, but didn't know you could ask for it grilled..score! They really should advertise that on their menu.
My dad had already tried the Baja Shrimp (fried version) before so he decided to go with the Mr. Pink and I got the Baja Shrimp. It was interesting to see them assemble the more unhealthy tacos behind the counter. It seemed they were just taking already fried (aka not fried to order) items and topping them with shredded cheese (or whatever) and the order was ready as opposed to our order that took a good 8 minutes or so to come out because they had to grill everything fresh. Our order came out hot, fresh, and fabulous.

Looks like there's some unaccounted for veggies on my taco but I am definitely not complaining. My taco was out of this world good and that saying something seeing as I'm not a huge taco fan. The shrimp was amazingly seasoned and perfectly grilled. The veggies worked harmoniously with an ever so often pop of jalapeno spice in ever crunchy bite. And, whats that..
|Is that an abundant amount of uncooked cilantro?!|
Dad loved his taco too..
|A mountain of pure joy, I'm sure.|
We headed home and brought in our Costco loot-

As I was waiting for my coffee to brew I got a little hungry and heated up the last of the "Saag Tofu" I made the other night. My dad had commented that it needed to be a little more creamy, and I agree, so for these leftovers I added a little scoop of greek yogurt (which is what I had used when making the dish, just not enough) and it made all the difference.
|Ignore gross-looking factor and admire creaminess.|
By the way, when I served this I had garnished it with cilantro. Bad idea. The rents liked it because they have no aversion to it but with my cilantro weirdness, it almost ruined the dish for me. Luckily I had only garnished so I was able to pick out the cilantro in my serving before it got mixed in.
I leave you with some cute pictures of my dogs by the fire. Tyson's will sit by the fire until he starts to sizzle and even then he still doesn't get it. Missy is smart enough to know that she can comfortably lay by the fire a couple feet away and not have to move because of too much heat.
