A note about serious food allergies

Lionel Richie once famously told us “karamu, fiesta, forever,” and while we only know what two of those words mean, we assume “karamu” is something stupendously awesome, off the chain good, a party that never ever ends. These tacos are full of that “karamu” quality, a fiesta in the mouth that you'll wish lasted forever. Shrimp, red bell pepper, slaw, corn… with some crispy jalapeños on top, this meal'll have you dancing on the ceiling. Whoops, wrong Lionel Richie song. Tip: Want to get the most juice out of your lime? Before cutting, microwave for 15-20 seconds to "soften" the fruit. Then, gently roll the softened fruit on your work surface while pressing on it with your palm. Finally, give yourself some serious mechanical advantage by placing a cut half in between the arms of a pair of tongs to make squeezing much easier.
